A spokesperson for Netflix told The Verge,

“Marvel’s The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix.”

He added,

“In addition, in reviewing our Marvel programming, we have decided that the upcoming third season will also be the final season for Marvel’s Jessica Jones. We are grateful to Marvel for five years of our fruitful partnership and thank the passionate fans who have followed these series from the beginning.”

Subscribers, however, are still able to view the already available series on Netflix. Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, The Defenders, Daredevil, Luke Cage, and The Punisher are the shows which are co-owned by Netflix.

Disney started planning its launch of Disney+ by moving its original series and films over to its own streaming service. The streaming platform will launch this fall.

All the Marvel series canceled on Netflix!

Jessica Jones and The Punisher’s cancellation didn’t garner heavy attention on the media. However, the discontinuation didn’t come as a surprise given the happenings of the status of other Marvel series on Netflix.

In fact, Daredevil ended in November 2018 after three seasons, Iron Fist met an end in October 2018 after two seasons, Luke Cage also discontinued last October after two seasons, and The Defenders only ran for one season though, these will still remain for viewership.

Marvel TV executive addressed fans about the status of the shows through a letter implying there is much more yet to come.

He penned

“Our Network partner may have decided they no longer want to continue telling the tales of these great characters… but you know Marvel better than that,”

He wrote,

“As Matthew Murdock’s Dad once said, “The measure of a man is not how he gets knocked to the mat, it’s how he gets back up.”

New and exciting superhero shows will shortly release on Hulu or Disney+. However, the actors and plots being a part of it are scarce.
