To unveil the release date, Netflix made a cool little video that doesn't reveal any actual footage, but hints at the show's tone.
Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the Twilight movies, also gave some insight into what we can expect from the character:
"Jessica is about paying rent and getting the next client. She’s dealing with a fairly dark past. She’s trying to get through the day. She’s not really trying to save the city. She’s trying to save her apartment. Jessica Jones is a brawler. She gets drunk, she gets pissed off, and boom, you’re down. She doesn’t wear a costume. She doesn’t have a mask. She’s just who she is. She’s an extremely blunt, direct person, and that applies to the action, as well."
As usual, all 13 episodes will be dropping at once, because Netflix could care less that you have a paper due on Monday. Watch the Jessica Jones announcement video, above.
