Jessica Jones: Knowledge Of Cancellation Allowed Them To Create Satisfying End

A show’s cancellation kinda sucks. Unlike movies, it’s very easy for series creators to have to end their run mid-story. In the case of many big, sci-fi-driven shows, the story is cut off before it can even get started (Firefly, anyone?). Sometimes the creators know the end is coming, but sometimes we’re left on a cliffhanger, waiting for an ending that will never come (Dark Angel, for instance), and it’s further proof that life just isn’t fair sometimes.

Earlier this year, following the release of the second season of The Punisher, it was revealed that that show, along with Jessica Jones, would be ending their runs on Netflix. These were the final stragglers of the Defenders shows. However, unlike The Punisher, Jessica Jones was still in production. With this knowledge, were they able to actually craft a satisfying ending?

Knowing that the end was coming “enabled us to really look at, ‘Where do we want to leave each of these characters?” showrunner Melissa Rosenberg told Collider in a recent interview. “If you look at all three seasons, as a whole, what feels like a complete journey for all of the characters?’ We really got a chance to land them, in a satisfying way, for us and, hopefully, for the audience. We found closure with it. It was just really gratifying, and it felt very honest.”

That’s certainly good to hear. The downside so far is that reviews for the first batch of episodes haven’t been great, with many stating that it’s one of the worst thus far, but perhaps that will change once we get to the end. We can dream, at least.

For a show that started off as strong as it did before falling face first in its second season, I hope the knowledge of the end really helped them add satisfying closure for fans.
