While we don’t have any new story or character details for the third season of the Marvel hit drama Jessica Jones on Netflix, we know one thing that will change when that season is over. The Hollywood Reporter revealed today that showrunner Melissa Rosenberg will exit the show after its third upcoming season.
The trade reveals that Rosenberg’s reason for exiting is simply due to wanting to do new things, which is understandable. So where will Rosenberg head next? According to THR, Rosenberg has landed an eight-figure deal with Warner Bros. TV where she will develop new projects with the studio.
“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.”
Rosenberg’s history with Jessica Jones goes back all the way to December 2010 when she was first developing the series for ABC. While the show didn’t end up moving forward by May 2012, Rosenberg’s hard work was finally rewarded by October 2013 when Netflix and Marvel TV made the announcement about their collaboration which included Jessica Jones. While she wouldn’t be a showrunner for a potential fourth season, Rosenberg is said to remain as an executive producer according to THR.
Jessica Jones Season 3 currently has no set release date.
