In a couple months, The Defenders will hit Neflix, and Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist will team-up on screen. As we near the August 18 release date, talk will surely ramp up to exponential proportion. However, the stars of The Defenders are also busy prepping for the next season of their individual shows.
With Jessica Jones season 2 filming already underway, the sophomore season of the series grows ever closer. Speaking with Rotten Tomatoes about must-watch TV, Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter shared a few tid-bits about season 2.
Even though we already know it’ll be dark and heavy, Ritter has now added that it will also be binge-worthy.
“I feel like it’s a binge show big time. This season maybe even more so than last. Even as I’m getting the episodes and reading them on the page, they ramp up so much at the end that it’s kinda hard to not want to just dive into the next one! So maybe try and savor it, but be prepared to cancel your weekend plans?”
Jessica Jones season two will hit Netflix sometime next year.
In the meantime, you can next see Ritter as the street-wise, heavy-drinking heroine in The Defenders on August 18, 2017.
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.

Their separate investigations will bring them together in – what else – a hallway fight.
The culmination of the first phase of the Marvel/Netflix partnership has a lot of ‘splaining to do. What’s the Hand’s true objective? How will our four heroes interact together and how will the supporting casts of their shows intersect here? And perhaps most importantly, who is the Big Bad played by Sigourney Weaver?
