The third season of Jessica Jones recently began filming in New York City. In the series, Ritter stars as title character, NYC private eye Jessica Jones. Details about the episode she’ll be directing are being kept under wraps.
“I am beyond thrilled to make my directorial debut on Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” said Ritter. “The entire crew and cast has become family to me, and I’m so appreciative of the opportunity to work with our incredible team in this new way. I am so grateful that Melissa Rosenberg, Jeph Loeb, Marvel, and Netflix entrusted me to take the reins.”
In Season 2, Jones was beginning to put her life back together after murdering her tormenter, Kilgrave (David Tennant). Now known throughout the city as a superpowered killer, a new case made her reluctantly confront who she really is while digging deeper into her past to explore the reasons why.
