Will David Tennant’s Kilgrave Return For Jessica Jones Season 2?



With season 2 of Jessica Jones now confirmed, we’ve now got a lot of questions that need answering, as Marvel and Netflix gave us next to no details when they announced the news. One thing that people are wondering about is whether or not we’ll finally see Hellcat appear, but there’s something else that also needs to be addressed. And that’s if we can expect David Tennant to return as the villainous Killgrave.

It’s no secret that the character was perhaps the best villain we’ve seen from Marvel yet, but as we all know, he met his maker at the end of season one when Jessica snapped his neck. However, this being the Marvel Universe, anything is possible and it would be foolish to totally rule out Kilgrave re-appearing for the series’ sophomore outing.

In fact, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg was asked about this very thing during the TCA press tour, and here’s what she had to say:

“I mean, if you have David Tennant you want him around forever,” she admitted. “He’s such an extraordinary actor and one of the loveliest people you’d ever want to work with. But the show is called Jessica Jones, and it’s about Jessica’s arc.”

So, while that’s not an outright confirmation, she’s also not denying the possibility. Frankly, it doesn’t seem too likely that he’ll return, but at least she doesn’t completely rule it out. Besides, he wouldn’t even need to necessarily be resurrected for it to happen. He can always appear in flashbacks and whatnot.

Tell us, what do you think? Should Kilgrave be brought back for season two of Jessica Jones?
