“Jessica Jones” is the second of Netflix’s four superhero series, which began with “Daredevil.” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” will premiere next, leading up to “The Defenders,” in which all the main characters will team up.
Ritter stars as the titular superhero-turned-detective who’s trying to rebuild her life in New York City.
The show also features David Tennant as villain Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Jessica’s best friend Trish Walker and Carrie-Anne Moss as a no-nonsense ally.
“Jessica Jones” is executive produced by series showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and Liz Friedman, along with Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s head of television.
