This morning, Marvel officially announced that actresses Simone Missick, who played Misty Knight in the first season of Luke Cage, as well as Deborah Ann Woll, who played Karen Page in the first two seasons of Daredevil and can next be seen in The Punisher, will be returning for The Defenders. And while they didn’t officially announce the start of production, production signs for Group Therapy began to spring up around New York last week confirming the production would, in fact, kick off filming this week. So it isn’t entirely surprising that fans have already spotted one of the Defenders on set.
A lucky Reddit user spotted Jessica Jones herself, Krysten Ritter, on the set of The Defenders earlier today as filming was taking place near their home. You can see the photo taken by the user below. While it doesn’t show too much, it’s nice to see Ritter return to as Jessica, especially after her own show’s fantastic first season.
Along with the above image, a Twitter user posted a photo of a diner that the show will be using for production this week. For those interested in possibly stopping by the set, while I’d imagine photos of the cast will be difficult to get, the user has included the location of the diner in with his tweet.

The Defenders, which will have eight episodes, is set to hit Netflix sometime in 2017.
