Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg has signed an overall deal with Warner Bros. Television and will be leaving the Marvel/Netflix series after the filming of season three, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"All of my attention remains with the extraordinary cast, writers and production team of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, until the completion of season three," Rosenberg said. "It continues to be a career highlight working with my partners at Marvel Television and Netflix. We’re extraordinarily grateful to the viewers who have supported us every step of the way on Jessica’s journey, which is so beautifully realized by Krysten Ritter and the amazing cast including Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville and Carrie-Anne Moss. We have so many talented storytellers in every area of this show, who I’m honored to call friends and collaborators. As I look ahead after this season, I’m thrilled that I will be able to explore new projects with the talented team at Warner Bros. Television and push myself in new challenging creative directions."

The Hollywood trade reports that Netflix and WB TV had a bidding war for Rosenberg's services, with the latter ultimately winning out with "a deal that ultimately is worth in the eight-figure range."

"Ultimately, Rosenberg was ready to do something different and was ready to move on to new projects though Netflix is said to have courted her to stay," said THR's Lesley Goldberg.

Rosenberg reportedly plans to create and develop new projects for WB TV. WB TV produces a variety of shows for various networks including the various DC-CW shows, Netflix's Lucifer, Fox's Gotham, Hulu's Castle Rock, DC Universe's Titans, and CBS' Big Bang Theory.
