Netflix renews Jessica Jones for a third season

Netflix announced today that it has renewed Jessica Jones for the third season, approximately one month after the premiere of season 2 of the program.

Although critics generally praised the Marvel series' debut season, many considered its second season to be a second-year depression. "The first five episodes are marked by oppressive harshness, with a precious little relief," wrote Samantha Nelson in her review of The Verge . Others said the show improved as the season progressed, however, Jones (Krysten Ritter) seemed more and more like a superhero by the end.

As The Hollywood Reporter notes, Disney recently ended a 2012 deal with Netflix and pulled all the Marvel films from the platform as it prepares to launch its own broadcast service. The Marvel properties currently on Netflix include the series Jessica Jones Luke Cage Daredevil Iron Fist The Punisher and The Defenders .

Netflix has not announced a release date for the third season of Jessica Jones yet.
