Fans fell in love with Krysten Ritter as Marvel's reluctantly badass P.I. Jessica Jones in the first season of the gritty Netflix series, and for Ritter, the feeling was mutual.

"I love how she's so badass and so cool, so vulnerable and really strong, inside and out," the actress gushed to ET about her character. "I love everything about her."

Ritter said that she fell more and more in love with playing the boozy heroine with "every page" of her Season 1 scripts, and said she's as eager as the fans to get started on her Season 2 adventures!

"That's the thing with Netflix shows, you binge them so quickly and the you're like, 'Wait. What's left?'" she said with a laugh. "I'm in the same boat. I watched it the same weekend everybody else did, so I'm lining up as well for Season 2."

Despite the titular hero's propensity toward being a loner, the true magic of Jessica Jones shines through in her relationships with other characters, particularly adopted sister-turned-BFF Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor).

"That was one of the most exciting things about the show, that female friendship," Ritter marveled. "At the heart of it, that's really what it's about. It's about that relationship with her very best friend, her sister. I just loved how honest and real it was."

The actresses also shared their hopes for their characters in Season 2. Taylor, in particular, is excited to dive more into her character's backstory, but she stayed tight-lipped about whether or not Trish would be following her comic canon transition into superhero Hellcat.

"I think there's so many layers to this character," the actress explained. "One of the things I'm really looking forward to, aside from all of the potential martial arts or athleticism, is seeing her relationship with her mother unfold a little bit more. I had a really good time working with [Rebecca De Mornay, who played Trish's overbearing stage mom, Dorothy] and obviously working with Krysten and seeing their friendship unfold in different ways. There's lots to play with."

"I'm so excited to see what they come up with," Ritter said of the "fantastic" Jessica Jones writing team. "[I'd love] to dig deeper into the psychology of the aftermath of [Season 1 villain] Kilgrave (David Tennant), and maybe we could do a couple big stunts. I'd be down for that."
