Netflix announced today that it has renewed Jessica Jones for a third season, about a month after the show’s season 2 premiere.

Although critics generally praised the debut season of the Marvel series, many deemed its second season a sophomore slump. “The first five episodes are marked by oppressive dourness, with precious little relief,” Samantha Nelson wrote in her review for The Verge. Others said the show improved as the season went on, however, with Jones (Krysten Ritter) looking more and more like a superhero by the finale.

As The Hollywood Reporter points out, Disney recently ended a 2012 deal with Netflix and pulled all Marvel feature films from the platform as it prepares to launch its own streaming service. Marvel properties currently at Netflix include the Jessica Jones spinoff series Luke Cage, Daredevil, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders.

Netflix hasn’t announced a release date for the third season of Jessica Jones yet.
