Marvel’s Jessica Jones closing its doors for good is a cruel punishment inflicted by Netflix, but the show finishing without at least one more appearance from David Tennant’s Kilgrave is even worse!
The Krysten Ritter-starring superhero show will end Netflix and Marvel’s four-year partnership when its third and final series premieres on the streaming service later this year, following its widely-expected cancellation along with The Punisher.
One of the core storylines throughout the series has been the toxic relationship between Jessica and her former boyfriend/tormentor Kilgrave (David Tennant) — who was killed off in season one, but appeared briefly in season two as a hallucination.
Although it seemed like Jessica had conquered her fear of him in the last go-round, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg surprisingly left the door open to another appearance from The Purple Man on Twitter this week.
When a fan tweeted “goodbye again Kilgrave”, Rosenberg intriguingly replied: “Not quite yet!”
That certainly seems like a hint that David Tennant will appear in the third and final season, at least in some capacity. Fitting him into the episodes would be a minor scheduling miracle, since he’s so busy these days.
Whether Kilgrave resurfaces in Jessica Jones‘s final season or not, Krysten Ritter has assured fans that she is very “proud” of the way the series comes to an end.
“We have THE BEST fans,” she wrote on Instagram. “You guys mean the world to me and I appreciate you beyond words. The final season of Jessica Jones is coming later this year and I am proud of how we complete JJ’s journey. I can’t wait for you all to see it. Stay tuned and more to come.”
Jessica Jones‘s first two seasons are now streaming on Netflix.
