Krysten Ritter is making her directorial debut and she couldn't be happier.
The "Jessica Jones" star will direct a Season 3 episode of the Marvel show she leads, Deadline reports. She told the publication that she is "beyond thrilled," and then highlighted how much she appreciates the chance to sit in the director's chair.
"I am beyond thrilled to make my directorial debut on 'Marvel's Jessica Jones,'" Ritter told Deadline. "The entire crew and cast has become family to me, and I'm so appreciative of the opportunity to work with our incredible team in this new way. I am so grateful that Melissa Rosenberg, Jeph Loeb, Marvel, and Netflix entrusted me to take the reins."
Once the article was published, Ritter got to celebrate the news publicly.
"This is the best thing ever," she wrote in part Wednesday.

"Jessica Jones" Season 3 is already filming, but so far, there's no word on which episode Ritter will be directing or when the show will return. Season 1 debuted in 2015 and Season 2 in 2017, so the earliest we expect it to return is 2019. Whatever the case, we're excited to see how Ritter's episode turns out.
