Krysten Ritter Thinks We've Seen The Last Of 'The Defenders'

Marvel's The Defenders should have been a can't miss series from Netflix, but somehow they managed to make it as mediocre as possible. Even at a shortened length it fell victim to the same pitfalls as the other shows, and never made the best use of its popular characters, and Iron Fist. So perhaps it's no surprise that Krysten Ritten, who is out hyping the newly-released second season of Jessica Jones, thinks we've seen the last of the Defenders as a team.

Speaking with Vulture, Ritter talked about the likelihood of the series' return and her involvement if it were to happen...

“Well, I think Jessica was pretty well received. People were excited to see her again, so that made us happy because Jessica is the next up […] “Y’know, I had a great time doing The Defenders and honestly, it was such a good experience that I would even do it again. I don’t think we are doing it again. It was never intentioned to do it again, but, you know, if I was given another opportunity, I would.”

Yeah, okay. Something tells me she's being diplomatic by saying it was never meant for a second season. If it were as big a hit as it should have been we'd have already heard about a renewal. Hopefully Marvel will turn their attention towards building a closer bond between the Netflix shows so they feel as cohesive as CW's Arrowverse. I think that's the best model when it comes to TV. Look at that, so DC does have something it can teach Marvel after all.
