TVLine Items: Jessica Jones' Mystery Lady, Conan vs. Winchesters and More

A new disease may be blowing into Hell’s Kitchen.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones has added Leah Gibson (Shut Eye) as a series regular for Season 2, our sister site Variety reports. Though Netflix has been typically tight-lipped on her character, Ingrid, only revealing that she is street-wise and educated as a nurse, the speculation is that she will turn out to be Typhoid Mary, a Daredevil villain who suffers from a dissociative disorder that has created three distinct personalities within her.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season 2 is slated to premiere in 2018.
