As if Jessica Jones, the fierce, independent, crime-solving private investigator, wasn't already badass enough. Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg has now announced that all 13 episodes in the show's second season will be directed by women.
Rosenberg talked about how keen she is to increase the number of women working on the show, admitting that, when a member of the production team suggested booking only women as directors, she 'jumped at the opportunity'.
The decision to hire an inclusive and diverse crew was 'a conscious decision,' Rosenberg said at a panel discussing where Hollywood has made progress on screen and behind the scenes, adding 'it’s very important that showrunners do that.'
'Jessica Jones' season two will continue to follow the unlikely superhero and Alias Investigations PI in the aftermath of her epic showdown with Killgrave (David Tennant).
When it comes to the specifics, Rosenberg remained tight-lipped, saying just that scripts were nearing completion and shooting is set for next year.
'Marvel's Jessica Jones' season one is currently available to stream on Netflix.
