Mike Holter talks ‘exhausted’ Luke Cage, no David Tennant for ‘Jessica Jones’ season 2

After announcing a season two for Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Netflix presented a panel with the cast and creators of the show, giving Krysten Ritter a chance to talk about her character and the journey towards The Defenders.

“I love Jessica and I’m so excited to see what happens next for her,” Ritter said. “When I watched the show the weekend it came out with everybody else, I was like, ‘Okay, what’s next?’ Which is kind of what happens with all the Netflix shows. You need more. So I’m excited to see where she goes next and how she handles this next chapter of her life.”

“I don’t think that trauma goes away with Kilgrave’s death,” Ritter said on the panel about the impact of David Tennant’s Kilgrave.

Luke Cage is moving on to his own series, but actor Mike Colter says that he expects to see Jessica again. “I think Luke is completely exhausted emotionally,” Colter said on the panel. “I think where he goes will be directly related to where he came from in the story of Jessica Jones. It’s a long arc, a long storyline. It leaves us in a great place to see how we interact again, whether it’s The Defenders or Jessica Jones season two or whatever.”

As for whom Jessica might face in season two as a villain, head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb says they’ve just begun thinking about the story of next season.

“The best part about it is we’ve learned about the pickup when you guys learned about it,” Loeb said on the panel. “I think we’re at that stage of just going yay.”

Loeb and creator Melissa Rosenberg indicated that Kilgrave really is gone and Tennant will not return for season two.

Jessica Jones is now streaming on Netflix.
