Jessica Jones was one of the six Marvel Defender series that were canceled by Netflix in 2019. However, in late 2021, Disney announced that it had regained the rights to these series and that they would be moving to Disney+. Disney+ also changed the title of Jessica Jones to AKA Jessica Jones, which was the original title of the show before it premiered on Netflix.
Jessica Jones Season 4 Renewal and Release Date Status
Update: Krysten Ritter, who played Jessica Jones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is reportedly back in full force in the franchise and will have a new solo series on Disney+. She has been rumored to have a cameo in Daredevil: Born Again, a series that will feature her character’s connection to the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. She has also been posting stories on Instagram of her working out in a Daredevil t-shirt, which could be a hint of her involvement. The fourth phase of the MCU has concluded and the fifth phase will introduce new characters and a war against Kang The Conqueror. The Daredevil: Born Again series will be released on Disney+ in the spring of 2024.
As of now, Disney has not confirmed whether Jessica Jones will be renewed for a fourth season or not. However, there is a possibility that the show could be revived in the future, as Disney has shown interest in bringing back some of the former Netflix Marvel characters to its own streaming platform.
For example, Charlie Cox reprised his role as Daredevil in Spider-Man: No Way Home and is rumored to appear in other Marvel projects on Disney+. Vincent D’Onofrio also returned as Kingpin in Hawkeye and could potentially face off against Jessica Jones again. Krysten Ritter, who plays Jessica Jones, has expressed her willingness to return to the role if given the opportunity.
If Jessica Jones is renewed for a fourth season, it might take a while before it is released. The show’s previous seasons were released about two years apart, so a possible fourth season could come out in 2025 or later. However, this is just speculation and there is no official word on when or if Jessica Jones will be back on Disney+.
Jessica Jones Season 4 Cast and Plot Expectations
If Jessica Jones is renewed for a fourth season, it is likely that most of the main cast members will reprise their roles. This includes Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker/Hellcat, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, and Rebecca De Mornay as Dorothy Walker.
The plot of a possible fourth season is hard to predict, as the show’s third season ended with a lot of changes for the characters. Jessica decided to leave New York after killing her nemesis Gregory Sallinger and being betrayed by her best friend Trish, who became a vigilante killer. Malcolm took over Jeri’s law firm after she was diagnosed with ALS and broke up with her girlfriend Kith. Trish was arrested by the police and sent to the Raft, a prison for superpowered criminals.
A fourth season could explore how Jessica deals with her guilt and grief after leaving her home and friends behind. She could also encounter new threats and allies in her new location, possibly crossing paths with other Marvel heroes or villains. Trish could try to escape from the Raft or redeem herself for her actions. Malcolm could face ethical dilemmas as he runs a powerful law firm. Jeri could struggle with her terminal illness and try to make amends with her loved ones.
Of course, these are just possible scenarios and the actual plot of a fourth season could be very different. The show’s creators might also want to incorporate elements from the comics or other Marvel shows into their storylines. Whatever happens, fans of Jessica Jones are hoping that they will get to see more of their favorite private investigator on Disney+ someday.
