Here’s Why Netflix Cancelled Krysten Ritter’s ‘Jessica Jones’

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg discussed Netflix’s decision to cancel the Krysten Ritter series.

With the debut of Jessica Jones season 3, Netflix’s partnership with Marvel Television officially concluded as the Krysten Ritter series was the sole remaining MCU show following the streaming service’s decision to cancel each series set in the cinematic universe. However, Melissa Rosenberg noted it was clear Netflix’s decision to cancel Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones was a business one after it pulled the plug on Daredevil:

“That’s when we knew that this was clearly a business decision and that we would be on the chopping block as well. But that was quite early on, so we were able to make adjustments to really finish the storytelling, and it ended really quite perfectly, actually.”

Nonetheless, Melissa Rosenberg stated she is happy the Krysten Ritter series was able to craft a complete journey for its characters:

“I’m proud of our series. You know, the three seasons feel to me like a really complete journey for our characters. We’ve really had the opportunity to just take them to a place that was satisfying. It’s been a really exciting ride, both for the characters and for me.”
