'Jessica Jones' star Krysten Ritter wants 'Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23' to be revived
Ritter portrayed Chloe who was a hard-partying, irresponsible and freeloading con artist described by friends as having the 'morals of a pirate'
Krysten Ritter may now be starring on Netflix in Marvel's 'Jessica Jones' as the alcoholic former superhero with her own detective agency, but the actress has not forgotten about ABC's 'Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23,' which arguably shot her to mainstream attention.
Speaking during a Q&A session at the Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas, the actress said that it would be a 'dream come true' to see a revival of the critically-acclaimed but short-lasting show. Ritter, who appears to be inspired by the slew of reboots cropping up on programming, said: "They're reviving so many shows now, we're always trying to find ways to do that."
"Obviously, I'm doing 'Jessica Jones' now and that is my love and my priority and it takes up a lot of time, so it's a scheduling thing, but we're always kind of trying to find ways to do it. So fingers crossed. Tweet about it. Netflix, make it happen! Tweet it to life," she continued.
Ritter portrayed Chloe, the eponymous 'B---- in Apartment 23,' who was a hard-partying, irresponsible and freeloading con artist described by friends as having the 'morals of a pirate.' Hailing from a rocky background, her lovable, but ultimately sociopathic protectiveness of roommate June (Dreama Walker) captivated audiences and critics alike.
But struggles in drawing in ratings meant that the show was canceled by ABC after just two seasons and 26 episodes in January 2013. The immediacy of its cancelation meant that the last eight episodes were never aired but were instead made available online for streaming on the network's official website.
Asked about what Chloe might be up to these days, Ritter answered: "Something ridiculous, something so ridiculous. She probably owns a hotel chain or something, something fancy,” Ritter said. “She's made it, she's made it big time."
When questioned on what the third season could focus on, Ritter honestly said that she didn't know but that she was confident that the writers and creator, Nahnatchka Khan, would come up with something that did not disappoint.
"I mean, those writers and Nahnatchka Khan, the show creator, she just comes up with like the funniest stuff," she said, adding: "In my opinion, she's as funny as it gets. If you can get a laugh out of her, you know you're doing something right. So you know, that would be a dream come true."
