“We are so fortunate to have an actress of Janet’s talent and stature join what is already an incredible cast,” said Marvel’s Head of Television and Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb.  “Our second season of ‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones’ aims to capture what audiences loved about our first, and Janet will be key to achieving that goal.”

“We couldn’t possibly be more excited to work with Ms. McTeer for our second season,” said “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” series Creator and Executive Producer, Melissa Rosenberg. Her gravitas and authenticity are the perfect ingredients for all we’re trying to create this year.  She disappears into roles, gives her characters extraordinary dimension and depth.  We’re incredibly fortunate to be able to collaborate with her.”
