Marvel’s Jessica Jones is probably one of the best shows on Marvel Television’s repertoire. With its noir and crime elements interspersing greatly with its superhero premise, season 1 and season 2 were both damn good and we can likely expect season 3 to be pretty cool as well. It’s going to be a while till we see season 3 hit the screens but things seem a little uncertain for the future of the television series as show-runner Melissa Rosenberg seems to be stepping away from the series after season 3.
According to THR, Rosenberg will be departing from the series after season 3 and will be moving to Warner Bros. Television with an overall deal. Sources have indicated that the studio outbid Netflix for Rosenberg’s services in a deal worth within an eight figure range. In the deal, Rosenberg will develop new projects for Warner Bros. Television and it seems that Rosenberg is quite ready to tackle new projects. She said:
“All of my attention remains with the extraordinary cast, writers and production team of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, until the completion of season three, It continues to be a career highlight working with my partners at Marvel Television and Netflix. We’re extraordinarily grateful to the viewers who have supported us every step of the way on Jessica’s journey, which is so beautifully realized by Krysten Ritter and the amazing cast including Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville and Carrie-Anne Moss. We have so many talented storytellers in every area of this show, who I’m honored to call friends and collaborators. As I look ahead after this season, I’m thrilled that I will be able to explore new projects with the talented team at Warner Bros. Television and push myself in new challenging creative directions.”
A new show-runner would take over from Rosenberg if there are plans for a fourth season but Rosenberg will remain credited as the show’s creator and executive producer. It’s a shame that she’s departing from the series since it’s so good so far but it seems like she really may be done with Jessica Jones. It is understandable for a creator to want to venture to different projects and with her on board the Warner Bros. team, we might be able to get some really great content.
