jessica jones, kilgrave, david tennant, season 2, marvel, netflixFans of Netflix's Marvel series "Jessica Jones" will see a familiar big bad when the show returns for season two: David Tennant is set to reprise his role as the mind-controlling Kilgrave.

Entertainment Weekly confirmed that the villain would indeed be back, though the details of his return are being kept under wraps for now. It's going to take some major explaining, though, since the character (SPOILER ALERT) was killed by Jessica (Krysten Ritter) in the season one finale.

A little thing like death hasn't stopped Marvel from resurrecting seemingly un-resurrectable characters before, though, with Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) from "The Avengers" -- who was impaled in the 2012 flick, then later turned up in TV spinoff series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." -- standing as the most famous example. There's no telling yet just how Kilgrave will make his comeback, though perhaps Tennant's character will be part of some flashbacks, rather than actually alive again?

Fans will have to wait to see. Kilgrave and "Jessica Jones" will return to Netflix sometime in 2018. Season two is in production now.
