Marvel's Jessica Jones Season 2 comes to Netflix in March
It’s important during these cold, grey winter months to have something to look forward to – and what better than the latest superhero offering from Netflix, season two of Marvel’s Jessica Jones.
The straight-talking, hard-drinking private eye returns to the streaming service on Thursday 8 March with 13 new episodes dropping all on the same day, perfect for bingeing the whole thing over one weekend.
Whether we do watch the whole second season of Jessica Jones in just a couple of days depends on whether it matches up to the brilliance of the first season, in which Jones (Krysten Ritter) struggles with her own inner demons as well as fighting probably the best baddie in any of the Netflix Marvel series so far, the dangerously persuasive Kilgrave (David Tennant).
The trailer released by Netflix last month teases more of the same, with Jones coming to terms with killing her tormentor at the end of season one while taking on a new case as she attempts to move on from the events of The Defenders.
We know that Jones will be joined once again in season two by best friend Trish (Rachael Taylor), neighbour Malcolm (Eka Darville) and lawyer Jeri (Carrie-Anne Moss). New cast members include JR Ramirez, best known for playing Julio in the Starz series Power.
The only thing stopping us getting too excited is the hit-and-miss nature of Netflix and Marvel’s recent collaborations.
Both seasons of Daredevil were excellent, as was one of the surprise hits of 2016 Luke Cage. But it all went a bit wrong with Iron Fist and The Defenders, which saw all four superheroes team up for the first time, was painfully slow at times.
Even The Punisher, a spin-off series created following the character’s popular appearance in Daredevil season two, hasn’t exactly been a hit with the critics.
Even so, the second season of Jessica Jones is sure to be a must-watch for Marvel fans, who also have a host of movies to look forward to in 2018 including Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Captain Marvel.
Get a free month-long trial of Netflix
Of course, in order to watch season two of Marvel’s Jessica Jones you’ll need a Netflix subscription. If you don’t have one, the easiest thing to do is sign up to a free trial, which you can do on the Netflix website.
If you’re doing this just to watch Jessica Jones season two without paying for it, fair enough but you’d better wait until just before the new episodes drop because the trial only lasts a month.
After your free month you’ll be charged a monthly fee until you cancel, but you won’t be tied into any 12 or 18-month contract. A basic Netflix subscription that lets you watch on only one screen at a time and only in standard definition is £5.99 a month.
A standard subscription is £7.99 and allows you to watch on two screens at once and in HD. A premium Netflix subscription is £9.99 a month and gives you the freedom to watch on four different devices at the same time and access some content in Ultra HD.
If you’re a TalkTalk, BT or Virgin Media TV customer you can access Netflix directly through your set top box, making it nice and easy to watch Netflix on your telly.
You can’t do the same through a Sky Q box because Sky would much rather you sign up to its own streaming service NOW TV. And while there’s loads of good stuff to watch on NOW TV, it doesn’t have Jessica Jones and that, after all, is why we’re here.
Thankfully, there are loads of other ways to watch Netflix though – on your phone, tablet, laptop or on your TV through a games console, Amazon Fire Stick, Apple TV or Chromecast.
