Jessica Jones Renewed for Season 3 – IGN:

The streaming giant has renewed Marvel drama Jessica Jones for a third season.

The renewal keeps the Marvel show on Netflix as Disney prepares to launch its own streaming service soon.

However, so far the company’s plans don’t seem to affect Netflix’s original Marvel shows. There’s no word yet on when Jessica Jones: Season 3 will debut.

Next up to premiere from the Netflix Marvel Defenders series’ is Luke Cage Season 2 on June 22, 2018.

Netflix is keeping Jessica Jones in house.

The streaming giant has renewed Marvel drama Jessica Jones for a third season.

The news comes a month after season two dropped on International Women’s Day.

While Netflix — like fellow streamers Amazon and Hulu — does not release viewership information, the series has remained the more critically favorited of all of its Marvel dramas.

The renewal keeps the Marvel drama on Netflix as the comic book powerhouse’s corporate parent Disney prepares to launch a rival streaming service of its own. Disney last year pulled all of its Marvel feature films from Netflix for its planned streaming service, which will also include a Marvel original TV series. (Details on that have yet to be revealed.)

A return date has not yet been determined.

Jay Ali On For Daredevil Season 3

Jay Ali On For Daredevil Season 3:

The heat around the Marvel/Netflix superhero shows may have dimmed after the slight disappointment of the Defenders team up, but the solo shows remain active concerns. Daredevil’s third season is headed our way and the creative team is adding Jay Ali to the cast mix.

Ali has been hired in the role of Rahul “Ray” Nadeem, an honest, but ambitious FBI agent willing to go to any length for his family. “I love Jay Ali,” says executive producer and showrunner Erik Oleson. “It Isn’t easy to join a cast as talented as Marvel’s Daredevil – and Jay blew us all out of the water with his audition. His moving performance in Season 3 will show the world that he’s a star in the making.” The season should be on screens later this year.

How Jessica Jones fails people of color

How Jessica Jones fails people of color:

Unfortunately, without understanding what race can mean in or affect a character’s daily life, what you’re left with are scenes in which Jessica (Krysten Ritter), a cis white woman, complains to her Hispanic super about what it’s like to be discriminated against, or in which we hear the hiss of a black female detective saying “you people” to Jessica as she uncuffs her from a detention room in the police station, implying that super powered people are less-than. We get to hear Oscar yell out, “You’re not a protected class!” as Jessica calls him a bigot and berates him for attempting to evict her. 

The major characters of colour (all men, because there are no significant women of color in this season) are treated in season 2 is rough, to say the least.

Pryce, introduced in the first episode as someone who seemed to be Jessica’s private eye competition, ends up seeming incompetent and fairly unimportant (though there is potential for this to change in season 3). Oscar first exists purely to show how people are bigoted towards Jessica and then to provide a safe space for her. Oh, and to provide forged passports.

Malcolm is a plot pawn used to further the distance between Jess and Trish. They chew him up and spit him out and don’t look back.
