Melissa Rosenberg (above, left), the creator of the Jessica Jones Netflix/Marvel series, will be leaving the series after its third season, per THR.
Rosenberg will move to Warner Bros. Television after negotiating an eight-figure deal. It seems like the show creator was ready for a change, and although Netflix is said to have tried to get her to stay on the show, she will now be developing new projects for WB TV. She will finish the third season of Jessica Jones, though the show has no confirmed return date as of yet. If the show gets renewed for a fourth season, a new show-runner will take her place.
THR’s report contains a statement from Rosenberg:
All of my attention remains with the extraordinary cast, writers and production team of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, until the completion of season three. 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.
