In what may turn out to be a big blow to both Marvel and Netflix, Melissa Rosenberg, the creator and executive producer of Netflix’s Jessica Jones, is leaving the popular series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rosenberg will be leaving Jessica Jones after completing the upcoming third season. The producer has signed a multi-year deal with Warner Bros. Television where she’ll create and develop multiple projects. The Hollywood Reporter states that Rosenberg was ready to move on to something new and Warner Bros. TV was able to provide that opportunity.
Although she’s leaving, Rosenberg has made it clear that she’s still completely focused on finishing the third season of Jessica Jones before she starts work on other projects.
“All of my attention remains with the extraordinary cast, writers and production team of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, until the completion of season three,” Rosenberg said. “It continues to be a career highlight working with my partners at Marvel Television and Netflix. We’re extraordinarily grateful to the viewers who have supported us every step of the way on Jessica’s journey, which is so beautifully realized by Krysten Ritter and the amazing cast including Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville and Carrie-Anne Moss. We have so many talented storytellers in every area of this show, who I’m honored to call friends and collaborators. As I look ahead after this season, I’m thrilled that I will be able to explore new projects with the talented team at Warner Bros. Television and push myself in new challenging creative directions.”
The first two seasons of Jessica Jones are currently available to stream on Netflix, and the third installment is now in production.
