Jessica Jones season 3: Krysten Ritter starts work “very soon”

Krysten Ritter has revealed that production work will start “very soon” on Jessica Jones season 3, and that she’s been in training to return to the role for a while now. Ritter said as much at the Comicpalooza event in Houston, during a panel discussion.

Kyle Luker, Ritter’s manager, began the panel by saying, “So, you’re getting ready for season 3.”

“I am,” Ritter replied. “Spoiler alert! I start very soon. I’m training, boxing, all of that. Pumping iron.”

“You have to get yourself physically prepared to do the stunts,” she said, “but also our schedule’s crazy. We work long hours, sometimes we work overnight. I found that when I start off in really good shape, I feel better and I can keep up with the schedule.”

As for what she wants from Jessica Jones season 3 in terms of story, Ritter said this:

“What I love so much about Season One or Season Two were how deeply personal both storylines were, but different. So I got to explore different things within her and in my performance, show new colors. I think Season One and Two, we really looked back at Jessica’s past. We looked at what made her as hardcore she is and how isolated [she is], and she’s learned a lot — I think especially in Season Two she’s learned a lot about herself. She has a lot to live up to, and I’m curious to see what she does next.”

So are we! We’ll be sure to keep you posted as we hear more about Jessica Jones season 3, and the other shows on Marvel’s Netflix slate.
