The series is the last of Marvel and Netflix’s collaboration

Jessica Jones has been to hell and back ... and yet everything that’s happened in the superpowered sleuth’s life doesn’t look as terrifying as this trailer for Netflix’s third and final season.

In Jessica Jones season 3, Jessica (Krysten Ritter) crosses paths with Gregory Salinger (Jeremy Bobb), known in the comics for being the second psychopath to assume the identity of “Foolkiller.” Traditionally, Foolkiller’s mission has been relatively straightforward: kill fools. With a brilliant mind, thirst for blood, and knack for poetry, he’s sparred with Spider-Man to the Defenders. He also uses a giant scarf as a parachute. We have doubts on the costume quirk appearing in the Netflix series.

In the trailer for the new season, we get a taste of Jessica and Salinger’s battle of wits and muscle. The hunt to find the killer has a very Dark Knight vibe, and finds our heroine clashing with one of her own. According to Netflix, “[Jessica] and Trish (Rachael Taylor) must repair their fractured relationship and team up to take him down. But a devastating loss reveals their conflicting ideas of heroism, and sets them on a collision course that will forever change them both.”

Season 3 sees the return of Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) as Jeri Hogarth, Eka Darvill (Empire) as Malcolm Ducasse, and Rebecca DeMornay (The Hand that Rocks the Cradle) as Dorothy Walker, Trish’s mom. Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Sarita Choudhury (Homeland), Tiffany Mack (Hap and Leonard), Jessica Frances Dukes (The Good Wife), and Aneesh Sheth (New Amsterdam) also join the cast.

Jessica Jones will be the final Marvel show to bow on Netflix. In late 2018, the streaming giant announced that Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil would not be renewed. In February, Punisher and Jessica Jones’ also got the axe. Though fans have campaigned for the shows to be revived at Disney Plus, there are currently no plans to do so, as the company moves forward with its own slate of MCU-approved series.
