Janet McTeer Joins ‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones’ season 2

Two-time Oscar nominee Janet McTeer (The White Queen, Damages) has signed on to the Season 2 cast of Marvel’s Jessica Jones.

McTeer will play an undisclosed character who will have an enormous impact on Jessica’s (Krysten Ritter) life, according to the early reports.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones focuses on Jessica (Ritter), who, after a tragic incident is enhanced with tremendous strength, and is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases in New York City.

“We are so fortunate to have an actress of Janet’s talent and stature join what is already an incredible cast,” said Marvel’s Head of Television and Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb.

“Our second season of ‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones’ aims to capture what audiences loved about our first, and Janet will be key to achieving that goal.”

Jones was rocked in the first season, forced to accept to extraordinary powers and face her nemesis, The Purple Man, played by David Tennant. Ritter will reprise the role for the team-up of the characters from all of the Netflix shows: Defenders, due in the fall.

McTeer won a Golden Globe for her work in Tumbleweeds. She also received two Oscar nominations for Tumbleweeds and Albert Nobbs, along with an Emmy nominaton for her role as Clementine Churchill in HBO’s Into the Storm.

Production for season 2 of Jessica Jones began immediately following the Defenders shoot. Rachael Taylor and Carrie-Anne Moss also return from the first season.

The Defenders arrives on August 18th, 2017, with The Punisher coming later this year.
