Melissa Rosenberg, creator of the Netflix Marvel series Jessica Jones, is set to head to Warner Bros. for a reported eight-figure television deal, according to THR. Rosenberg will leave the drama based on the Marvel comics character of Jessica Jones after the upcoming third season. A new showrunner will join Jessica Jones if the show is picked up again, but Rosenberg will remain in the credits as the creator and executive producer. A premiere date for Jessica Jones Season 3 has not yet been announced.
Rosenberg will reportedly create and develop new projects at her new Warner Bros. TV home. She told the site, “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.”
Rosenberg is known for shows like Dexter, The O.C., Party of Five and Boston Public. She wrote all films in the Twilight saga, including Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2.
