TVLine Items: Evil Jessica Jones Encore, Kristen Bell Visits Family Guy and More

Jessica Jones is in for a bad case of déjà vu.

David Tennant, who famously and nefariously played Season 1’s Kilgrave (and was just named our Performer of the Week for Broadchurch Season 3), will reprise his role as the mind-warping villain in Season 2 of the Netflix/Marvel drama, EW.com reports.

Kilgrave was last seen in the Season 1 finale, where Krysten Ritter’s titular heroine — spoiler alert! — snapped his neck and killed him.

In typical Marvel fashion, details of Tennant’s involvement are being kept quiet. Last month it was announced that Leah Gibson has been added as series regular Ingrid, a character speculated to eventually emerge as the Daredevil villain Typhoid Mary.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones is slated to return to Netflix in early 2018.
