Spoilers: Will David Tennant's Kilgrave return for Jessica Jones Season 2?

David Tennant's Kilgrave was definitely one of the best things about the first season of Jessica Jones, and there are many who are hopeful that the nasty villain will return for the recently announced second season. Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg was asked if there's any chance he will be back for the sophomore season of the Netflix series during the TCA press tour, and she didn't completely rule out the possibility in her response, but if you haven't seen the first season yet, you should stop reading now.

I mean, if you have David Tennant you want him around forever. He's such an extraordinary actor and one of the loveliest people you'd ever want to work with. But the show is called Jessica Jones, and it's about Jessica's arc.

Although Jessica Jones snapped Kilgrave's neck in the final episode, they've always found a way to bring characters back from the dead in the comics, but if he does return for the next season, I think it will be as a hallucination that torments Jones, à la Moriarty from BBC's Sherlock. Do you think David Tennant's Kilgrave will make an appearance in Jessica Jones Season 2?

In the recent Daredevil comics, Killgrave had multiple offspring with similar powers from different women. If only as a flashback, he could return for a backstory involving his children.

They've already ruined Jessica's arc....

Tenant was the best thing about the show, but it should have been Jessica (it was for the first few episodes). Her issues resolved so much by the end of the first season, that they're going to have to have her character regress to have anything interesting to explore. The show will still be dark and dingy (which is kind of cool with superheroes running around), but with a "cured" Jessica, the show will have to have a completely new center going forward. In the comics (and in real life), the

At most, he'll be featured in a flashback or some kind of dream sequence. I doubt they'll have an entire plot developed around the inclusion of Kilgrave. I know the MCU has found some failsafes to bring people back from the dead, but so far they've been heavily regarded as resources of SHIELD. So unless Marvel plans to finally connect the Netflix shows directly to the MCU, I'd say we're shit out of luck on Kilgrave's return.

Besides, after the great first season and noting how it ended,

Besides, after the great first season and noting how it ended, wouldn't bringing him back completely undo the entire character arc for Jessica Jones in season 1?

Sherlock is a bad comparison given the likelihood of Moriarty faking his death, but overall, I agree with the points made. Jessica needs to evolve as a character and facing a new villain does that. I agree with TarantinoDork on that basis of Kilgrave returning occasionally tormenting Jessica on a subconscious level.

Jessica's PTSD establishes that he shows up in her psyche on occasion, so that could work. As the little devil on her shoulder. But Netflix should be different than the MCU. Dead means dead.

This is why they need to stop killing off villains. They figured out a way to contain him, should have just stuck with that.
