In Shocking Contrast to Comics Industry Practices, Season 2 of Jessica Jones Already Halfway Written

Why not just start with a shocking character death and wing it from there like they do in the comics?!

According to a report from Comics Alliance, Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg has said that the second season of the popular Netflix show is halfway written, even though the show won't premiere until, at earliest, 2017. The revelation sent shockwaves through the comic book industry, where important projects are frequently announced and solicited as soon as a marketing person comes up with the idea to kill off a major character in a shock death.

"They're writing the show before they release the show?" asked superstar Marvel writer "The Great One" Brian Bendis. "What a crazy idea!"

Civil War 2, the current ongoing Marvel super-mega-crossover event has been delayed multiple times, with its final issue coming out after the comics that launch as part of the event's aftermath. The same thing happened last year with Secret Wars as well.

"I don't know that there's anything we can learn from this," Bendis added, shaking his head, remaining absolutely mystified by the concept of having a plan in place well before shipping the first issue of a comic. "But I appreciate that they're trying something different."

At press time, Marvel was preparing to announce another delay to Civil War 2.
