Critics Consensus

While Jessica Jones is a slower burn with less focus than its inaugural season, its enticing new character arc more fully details the most charismatic Defender.

Critic Reviews for Marvel's Jessica Jones Season 2

All Critics (83) | Top Critics (21)

Jessica Jones, like its protagonist, can't be called simply good or bad. It's messier, stranger, and far more complicated than that. And that's a good thing, flaws and all.

Mar 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Ritter's Jessica Jones remains the most compelling, evocative and dynamic character in Netflix's Marvel canon.

Top Critic

As long as Jessica can down half a dozen whiskies without wiping off either her sneer or her lipstick, she'll remain irresistibly watchable.

Mar 5, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Like the Penrose stairs, each episode builds to a climax that never quite materialises. Still, it's so well made that just climbing those stairs is satisfying enough.

Mar 2, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Season 2's all-female directing staff keeps the show's noir bent in place though doesn't push too hard into the realm of art - but the clean approach works, as does Ritter's always grounded and believable performance.

Feb 27, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

What makes Jessica Jones great television is its thematic coherence - it knows what its about, more so than any other Marvel series...

Mar 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Jessica Jones returns with an interesting story that must be developed gradually, but that gives you a good fifty minutes per episode. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 26, 2019 | Full Review…

With improved pacing and strong character work, Jessica Jones Season 2 is a competent followup to an electrifying debut season. It takes everything Jess fans loved about the character and her world and improves upon it.

May 20, 2019 | Full Review…

The effect is dampening, an unfortunate blunting of season one's brutally efficient edges.

Feb 16, 2019 | Full Review…

I'd rank it above Iron Fist, because at least this has a charismatic lead and a good core-storyline that ends really well, but it's still not a patch on most of the MCU...

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 2

    Love the show and her new assistant.
  • Aug 13, 2019
    Fairly weaker compared to it's first season , the only two things i liked was the dinamic between jessica and kilgrave , and how it changes characters relationship.
  • Aug 12, 2019
    Forced diversity, representation quotas and inter-sectional politics is not desired in entertainment. The only thing that makes the show tolerable is looking past the BS and knowing it is a nonsense narrative that is being pushed in all areas of politics, entertainment, media, social media and virtually every establishment. That is the ONLY why I didn't give is the lowest rating.

    The worst season of all the Marvel Netflix shows. Krystin is still great as Jessica, and I like the exploration of Trish's story, but this season doesn't have David Tennant or an acceptably good villain to take his place. Instead they increase the bad parts of season 1 to fill space. The unnecessary sex scenes get more frequent and decidedly disgusting, and we get a lot of worthless drama and follow characters no one cares about for large pieces of time. My only hope for season 3 is that Trish finally goes full Hellcat as a partner for Jessica and that they find a good villain or villain for them to take on.

    meh this was not what i was hoping for this season fails 2 live up to the first one
  • Jul 02, 2019
    I love this season, the character development, we get to know more about jessica's past
  • Jun 15, 2019
    Way too much Trish. Otherwise, good, but I don't find the Trish character anything but annoying and she takes over the show, making it less "Marvel's Jessica Jones" and more "Marvel's Jessica Jones' Annoying Friend Trish."

    Just finished Jessica Jones second season. I found myself fast forwarding through many scenes. The season just barely kept me interested enough to watch it. I found that if felt too much like a soap opera. I hate Jessica and Trish's love/hate/love/hate/love/hate/... relationship. Another big issue is the white man hating that is inherent in the series. If you see a white male, there is a 95% chance he will be either a prick, gay, or evil. The only white male that seems to be a good role model is the police detective. I'm not sure I will watch the next series. I'm hoping Luke Cage will be better.

    Just too disappointed with too much drama, bitterness and never ending insecurities and betrayals of the characters to one another. The first time, I saw Jessica Jones S1 in Netflix, I got hooked up and finished the entire two seasons in three days. However, I thought that the S2 would be much better than the S1, but to my dismay...all of the established characters in the last episodes of S1 were completely rigged in the entire S2. Whatever happened to Trish and Malcolm? All of a sudden they became over self calculating and ambitious, greedy and rambunctious and the former sister/BFFs will soon to be arch nemesis. A lot of things gone wrong in the S2. At first, the height of the mother has a large difference. The voice were not the same as they claim, the ashes that "Whizzer" spread out is supposedly for Philip, but when the mother came into her place it became her ash. The testing or conversion of Trish wasn't even on the first stage yet--while Jessica and the others took days/months/years to be tested and got successful, but with Trish, her DNA was about to be tested and was about to get injected by whatever it is and all of a sudden at the end of S2, she got superpowers? The chasing of Jessica and her mother to another city/town only took Trish a very quick time to reach. Whereas the dynamic duo took hours or even a day to reach there. Did she fly? How did she even know that the two were there? Jessica was too weak in this season that she claims to jump so high and can even fly, she's too weak to fight her mother, there's not much action and display of her powers in this season. On that episode that she's being evicted because of her illegal office, she's being wiped out by a competitor... and other dramatic horrific stuff that they squeezed in one bag is too much. Plus from S1 to S2 a lot have already occurred and happened in that apartment, yet she's still there, her apartment almost got ripped apart, didn't the neighbors reported the noises? a lot of people have already died in her bedroom, yet she's still manages to have sex and sleep soundly there. Could be the producers are too stingy or they just ran out of place to shoot. Normally, the landlord will kick you out immediately. Also, the nurse on the last episode of S1 when Luke got coma was actually his girl in The Defenders. The story was too all over the place and the cast and crew did not even paid attention to all the details that they have missed--but their audience won't. What happened to the character of Trish that's confident and professional and the wall support of Jessica that all of a sudden she became the sickening insecured, adrenaline junkie friend in S2. What was her real issue why she became addicted really? And Malcolm... the former addict that grew his confidence and ambitions like his beard have suddenly turned his back and felt like he can be the next Jessica Jones. Too much. Hogarth... ok, let's say that the karma shipped have finally turned its tide on her for cheating and getting her former wife killed. But to believe in those stuff that the nurse claimed she's from IGH and Shane can heal---that is too twisted stuff. Healing is metaphysics or psychic healing and not part of the science or crazy inventions and you as the one of the top best lawyer whatever, you'd just let two strangers into your expensive place? What happened to your sharp wit and and she said that her trust is hard to be earned. The part that Trish was looking for Karl to be converted into super hero to have super powers, they just portrayed here that anyone can be a hero and there's no uniqueness already. Then at the chase scene where Jessica found Trish in a car park and she missed her car. What happened to the high jump and fast run? she could just even toss a car to stop her. Duh? and Trish is a "good driver" not a car race driver to outrun her. The entire story seemed to me like a giant mosaic of missed details and wrong angles. Doesn't make any sense. Let's see what they have in S3. The spoiler said that Trish will be the next villain and someone from the past. Men in both seasons are actually the damsels in distress and women are the knight in shining capes. I was expecting more action but then it just became the days of our lives drama.

    Might not be as good as the debut season but JJ still provides plenty of excellent drama for the superhero genre. Feel sorry for all the characters though... :(
