Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones Updates: Marvel decides to change title of upcoming series; Netflix clarifies its release date

The upcoming Netflix original series has also changed its title, dropping the 'A.K.A.' Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones will not premiere this 2015.

The upcoming Netflix original series A.K.A. Jessica Jones changes its title, dropping the 'A.K.A.' The series will now be officially called Jessica Jones. After changing it from Alias to A.K.A. Jessica Jones, this will most probably be the final title of the show.

Although Jessica Jones is supposed to premiere this year, this might not push through. This speculation stems from Netflix's announcement of the series for this year which does not incude Marvel's Jessica Jones.

When IGN asked Netflix's head Ted Sarandos, he said, "You should think of it about as roughly a year. Some will roll in as early as eight months and others in 15 months apart, and basically what it is is we're not trying to meet a fall programming schedule or trying to hit a grid number, so really we want to give the shows enough time."

The Netflix head also added, "Jessica Jones hasn't started production yet, so a lot happens from the first day on the set to the last day of production. So we want to give them enough room and enough time to make a great show, so I don't want to set up a rigid timetable and deliver a show every eight months or every twelve months, but you should expect them about a year apart."

To simplify what Sarandos, "it's too hard to say now" if Jessica Jones will premiere this year. But this is the synopsis for the Marvel series:

"Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need... especially if they're willing to cut her a check."

Marvel's Jessica Jones will star Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and David Tennant as The Purple Man.

If Marvel's Jessica Jones will premiere this year or early 2016, no one still knows. But Jessica Jones shoots in New York.
