Netflix Announces Premiere Date of Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ Starring Krysten Ritter
Netflix’s new superhero show Jessica Jones has gotten a premiere date, and your Thanksgiving holiday just got a lot better.
Come November 20th, all 13-episodes of the series based upon the Marvel comic of the same name will be available to watch.
Krysten Ritter stars as Jones, a former superhero turned private detective in New York City who opens her own agency called Alias.
Melissa Rosenberg, the executive producer and showrunner for Jessica Jones, commented while at the Television Critics Association summer press tour back in July that Jones is an “incredibly flawed, damaged and interesting character regardless of gender.”
Netflix has already established itself as a reliable platform for adapting Marvel comics into a television show. Daredevil, starring Charlie Cox, was the first of the four superhero adaptions Netflix has planned to be released and found massive success. Variety reported back in April that after its April 10 release, there were “an estimated 10.7% of subscribers watching at least one episode in its first 11 days on the streaming service.” In addition, it currently has a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
However, Rosenberg had also commented,
Jessica Jones is a very, very different show than Daredevil.
We exist in a cinematic universe, [and] the mythology of the universe is connected, but they look very different, tonally they’re very different … That was my one concern coming in: Am I going to have to fit into Daredevil or what’s come before? And the answer is no.
