Marvel's Jessica Jones is adding a major, and mysterious, roll in Season 2.
According to Entertainment Weekly, two-time Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Janet McTeer has joined the cast of the hit Netflix series. While the identity of her character is currently unknown, we do know that McTeer will be playing a character who will have an enormous impact on Jessica’s life. The casting represents the first major addition to Jessica Jones for Season 2.
"We are so fortunate to have an actress of Janet’s talent and stature join what is already an incredible cast," said Marvel TV chief 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."
Series creator Melissa Rosenberg adds: "We couldn’t possibly be more excited to work with Ms. McTeer for our second season. 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."
Starring Krysten Ritter, Jessica Jones is currently streaming its first season on Netflix.
