In an interview with Comicbook.com, Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg praised Krysten Ritter for her directorial debut on the series, which will happen during the show’s third season. Netflix recently announced that season three (which will also be the final season) will premiere on June 14.

She said: “It’s something she’s wanted to do for a long time and is certainly qualified to do. She and I started talking about it last season as well, but she’s in every scene of every episode so it just wasn’t possible. And then, as we were creating season three in the writers’ room we realized the scene had even been written already and someone went ‘Oh my god! She’s not even really in this!’ So, what a great opportunity. Marvel agreed to it and Netflix did as well. So I was able to hire her as a director and it was really very serendipitous that it worked out that way. She just fricking nailed it, man. There was no sign whatsoever that she was a first-time director. I’ve worked with directors with far more experience that were not even as near organized and specific.
