Jessica Jones season two premieres tomorrow. We’re so excited for the first series post-Defenders that features one of the Defenders.

Of course, many fans are wondering if we’ll see a team-up again.

Star of both series, Krysten Ritter doesn’t think chances are high.

In an interview with Vulture, the actress talked about her thoughts on the subject.

“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. My heart is with my show because of the subject matter and because of the great drama that we get to do and the personal issues that we explore. For me, that is more the type of content that I enjoy as a viewer and as a performer. My heart is in Jessica Jones, but I did have a great time doing The Defenders with the guys. We had a good time. It is what it is.”

It’s true. The Defenders wasn’t as well-received as many would hope. As Ritter pointed out, however, The Defenders was supposed to be a miniseries event. Not a multi-season thing.

Who knows what the future holds though? Personally, I just want more inter-show crossover.

Jessica Jones returns March 8th.
