All 13 episodes of Marvel’s Jessica Jones will premiere on streaming service Netflix on Friday Nov. 20. Although the series, starring Krysten Ritter (Don’t Trust The B in Apartment 23), shares a universe, executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said, “Jessica Jones is a very, very different show than Daredevil,” and added that Jones is an “incredibly flawed, damaged, and interesting character regardless of gender.” The second show in a shared Netflix-Marvel universe, Jessica Jones will be followed by Luke Cage and Iron Fist, with all four characters eventually coming together for Marvel’s The Defenders.


MISS PIGGY WILL DATE JOSH GROBAN IN THE MUPPETS
