Jessica Jones does not currently have a confirmed premiere date, but the episode titles from the series’ first season may have already been released online. According to Slash Film, the episode titles were initially leaked on Reddit.
As seen from the list of alleged Jessica Jones episode titles, a common pattern of starting each title with “AKA” seems to be in place.
Episode 1: AKA Ladies Night
Episode 2: AKA Crush Syndrome
Episode 3: AKA It’s Called Whiskey
Episode 4: AKA 99 Friends
Episode 5: AKA The Sandwich Saved Me
Episode 6: AKA You’re a Winner
Episode 7: AKA Top Shelf Perverts
Episode 8: AKA WWJD?
Episode 9: AKA Sin Bin
Episode 10: AKA The Kumbaya Circle Jerk
Episode 11: AKA I’ve Got the Blues
Episode 12: AKA Jewel and the Power Man
Episode 13: AKA Smile
Jessica Jones stars Big Eyes actress Krysten Ritter in the titular role with Melissa Rosenberg as the showrunner working behind the scenes.
During a panel discussion before the Television Critics Association, Rosenberg explained how the Marvel Comics series Alias developed by Brian Michael Bendis essentially laid the groundwork for Jessica Jones.
“It all starts with Brian Michael Bendis’s Alias series. He created this incredibly flawed, damaged interesting character. Regardless of gender, it was the character that drew me. He wasn’t afraid to go there and we went even further. We’ve gone further in all of our storytelling… Well, is the audience going to respond to this or not? I don’t know, but if I’m afraid of it I’m doing the right thing.”
Jessica Jones will become the second official Netflix/Marvel series — following in the footsteps of the highly-successful Daredevil, which premiered earlier this year.
It did not take very long for the Daredevil series to strike a major chord with longtime Marvel fans and critics. That is why Netflix’s decision to renew the series, according to Entertainment Weekly, for a second season was not that big of a surprise.
Even though it may seem that Jessica Jones and Daredevil will play on the same field, Rosenberg made it clear that the two series are completely different.
“Jessica Jones is a very different show from Daredevil. We exist in a cinematic universe, the mythology of the universe is connected, but it will look very different. Tonally they’re very different. If you pick up Bendis’ Alias and pick up Daredevil, they’re wildly different. That was my one concern. Would I have to fit in with Daredevil? The answer was, ‘No, we’re hiring you for your point of view.'”
However, with the development of separate series for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, the development of a Defenders series on Netflix will bring them all together.
As mentioned, there is still not a confirmed premiere date for the first season of Jessica Jones. Chances are that an announcement might come sooner than a lot of fans think — especially if these leaked episode titles are accurate.
