Even though fans who have seen Season 1 might be wondering how it could happen, it's been confirmed that David Tennant will return for Jessica Jones' sophomore season.

Spoilers ahead for Season 1 of Jessica Jones!

According to Entertainment Weekly (who shared a pic from the set of the Marvel Netflix series), former Doctor Who star David Tennant will reprise the role of mind-controlling Big Bad Kilgrave, aka Purple Man, for Season 2 of the Netflix street-level superhero series.

Marvel is of course keeping mum on the details of the character’s return, since Jessica (Krysten Ritter) snapped his neck in the Season 1 finale, killing him dead. Best guess? Kilgrave could pop up in flashbacks, or perhaps he's just still lingering around in Jessica's head for a few hallucinations. Or hey, this is a comic book show — maybe he really is coming back to life. There's no doubt Tennant was pure evil (in a good way) in the role, and one of the most compelling Marvel TV villains to date.

How do you guys think Kilgrave will make his return to Jessica Jones when the second season debuts on Netflix in early 2018? Until then, Jessica Jones will return in The Defenders on Aug. 18.
