Netflix's two-series-per-year policy may have positioned the highly anticipated second season of superhero TV series "Jessica Jones" in a 2018 release date. Amid disappointment, it appears that fans still have so many reasons to get hyped up for the show's upcoming return.

One is the possibility of possibility of the fan-favorite Marvel TV newcomer The Punisher, played by Jon Bernthal, coming over to the show before he stars in his own standalone series, as pointed out by GameNGuide.

According to the publication, many fans are pleading for the web streaming service to have the heavy gun-toting vigilante face the heroine of the show, played by "Breaking Bad" star Krysten Ritter.

As if this is not exciting enough, yet another set of rumors suggests that the super strengthened private eye will be going up against the IGH. The organization happens to be the very people who gave Will Simpson (Wil Traval) the pills that made him quite unstable with himself.

The theories being pointed out indicate that the corporation may have something to do with Jessica's powers.

Although there's still no confirmation on this matter, Jones is still up for some huge scale action when she joins her own kind in next year's "The Defenders" along with Matt Murdock of "Daredevil" (Charlie Cox), the titular character in "Luke Cage" (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand in "Iron Fist," starred by Finn Jones.

Meanwhile, series executive producer Melissa Rosenberg revealed in an interview with IGN, that they are well underway in developing the story for season 2. "We've started gathering and thinking about where we're going. We have a big job in front of us. The bar was set pretty high," she said.
