According to Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter, Jessica Jones season 2 and the Marvel/Netflix superhero team-up show Defenders will film back-to-back.
"They'll be back-to-back. I don't know if they'll overlap a little bit," Ritter told Digital Spy. "It's about to be a serious undertaking. I'm starting my physical training - lots of weight training and boxing."
Daredevil star Charlie Cox has previously said that Defenders will begin filming by the end of the year, so all things considered, Jessica Jones could conceivably begin filming in the summer or early fall.
"Marvel have this grand plan. Luke Cage will come out, then Iron Fist. In terms of scheduling I don't know how it will all come out and I can't even tell you if I've filmed Luke Cage," said Ritter. "But I'm excited for Mike to have his own show. I know the tone of that show is going to be very different."
As for her own series, the Jessica Jones star said the new season will explore many of the open doors and questions unaddressed in the first season.
"I'm excited to see what happens next for Jessica, and the end of season one left a lot of doors open and questions unanswered," the actress said. "Kilgrave was her reason for getting up every morning. Saving people gave her purpose. I wonder how emotionally taxed she's going to be now. That opens a lot of doors as to who will come out and play. We all live in the same universe, so there are endless possibilities."
