Jessica Jones Season 2 is bringing David Tennant’s Kilgrave back

David Tennant will be back for Jessica Jones Season 2

The Defenders may be just around the corner, but Jessica Jones Season 2 is already filming, and a surprising casting announcement has been made: David Tennant is back as the dastardly Kilgrave.

If you haven’t watched the first season yet, you’re going to want to stop reading now…

EW debuted a picture of Tennant on set with star Krysten Ritter, and we’re surprised to see The Purple Man making his comeback given that our hero snapped his neck in the first season’s finale.

Of course, Marvel and Netflix aren’t saying how or why Tennant is back. It could be flashbacks, it could be continued post-traumatic stress for Jessica…who knows? We’ll find out when the show returns next year.

Meanwhile, The Defenders will hit Netflix on Friday.

Marvel’s The Defenders – coming to Netflix UK August 18. Blind ninja. Smart-ass detective. Bulletproof ex-con. Kung Fu billionaire. Marvel’s The Defenders centers on four outsider heroes that have to put aside their personal issues and come together when a villainous sect threatens to destroy New York City as we know it.”
