'Jessica Jones' Stars On Filming Sex Scenes For The Netflix Series: "There's Nothing Sexy About It"

The series finale of Marvel's Netflix series Jessica Jones wrapped up nicely, but this doesn't mean fans aren't clamoring to get their hands — er, eyes — on Season 2 of Marvel superhero show. Luckily the series was picked up for a second season, meaning audiences will be seeing more of Jones (Krysten Ritter), her on-again-off-again love interest Luke Cage (Mike Colter), the detective agency that doubles as her apartment, and of course — more sultry sex scenes. (Spoilers ahead!)

Jones and Cage share some of the series sexiest moments, but the series' stars swear it's a lot less sexy than it looks on screen. "If you have to do a scene like that, it's not terrible to do it with Mike. He's alright looking," Ritter jokes. "He's also a nice guy and always has your back. I always felt so safe and protected. It's really choreographed and there's nothing sexy about it. We are more like brother and sister."

Colter, who is getting his own Luke Cage spin-off series, echoed her comments. "The awkward part is the 20-30 people around us on set," he says of filming the scenes. "We try to keep the jokes to a minimum."

But both stars wish the series ended on a happier note for the couple. "For the end of Jessica and Luke, I was really sad when Jessica came home and Luke wasn't there. You finally thought something good would happen and he's not there. It was heavy," Ritter says, and Colter agrees. "Ultimately, it would have been nice to have a neat little package at the end," he says.

While the end of Season 1 gave a strong resolution to Jones' immediate journey, it left the characters in a broken state. "For Jessica, that final moment, that victorious triumphant moment where she kills Killgrave, I found that very conflicting in terms of her headspace," Ritter says. "He's the reason why she got up every day. He's the reason why she went out in the world. It really gave her a purpose. I don't think the past trauma just goes away with his death."

"Your protagonist is often as strong as your antagonist is," executive producer Jeph Loeb adds.

Season 1 of Jessica Jones is streaming on Netflix now.
