In the Queer TV News: Jessica Jones, Grey’s Anatomy, and More

International Women’s Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women’sachievements throughout history and across nations. It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace.

Well now that we have that out of the way, let’s get to the TV stuff! A lot happened all of the sudden so we felt we all needed a roundup.

Jessica Jones Season Two

Netflix usually drops ’em on Friday. They did Jessica Jones on Thursday because of International Women’s Day! She’s back, still full of rage, and ready to punch babies and steal their booze. What? It’s been a long day for her.

In even cooler news, show creator Melissa Rosenberg hired nothing but women to helm the season’s 13 episodes.

So crack a beer for our favourite tortured hero and remind her she’s the hero we want her to be:

One Day at A Time Pending Renewal

I really can’t believe this but the show I love, One Day at a Time has not been renewed yet!

This show isn’t for everyone, but I really do think it could be. Plus in season 2, all of their directors were women, PoC, or both.

Seriously. They get it. They’re not perfect, but you gotta take it one day at a time.

Greys Gays Takes a Hit

Oh honeys, I’m sorry. But I’ve got bad news. Jessica Capshaw (Arizona) and Sarah Drew (April) are leaving Grey’s Anatomy. Their contracts were not renewed. We want to know why Owen’s still there, but … well. Here’s hoping Arizona get’s out alive!

I mean …. Did they have to do it on International Women’s Day?

In Non Queer But Still Queer News…

Alex Cabot is back on SVU and that sonic boom you heard was a million fic writers running off to write Cabot/Benson fics.

PS: Don’t forget to watch A Winkle in Time this weekend. This is not a movie to sleep on.

About Mika Epstein

Mika has been deep in the fandom world since she could say 'Trekkie.' With over two decades experience in running fansites and organizing communities, she's taken on the challenge of delving into the recesses of television for queers long forgotten. Making this site with Tracy is nothing short of serendipity. Mika lives with her wife and their cats in Southern California. Of course she has a hybrid, but she'd rather ride her bicycle.
