'The Punisher' & 'Jessica Jones' Canceled By Netflix


Outsiders - February 18, 2019
Netflix continues their cancellation streak with Marvel's The Punisher and Jessica Jones.

There will be no Season 3 of the Jon Bernthal led vigilante series, The Punisher. The completed third season of the Krysten Ritter starring Jessica Jones will still appear on the streaming service.

“Marvel’s The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix,” Netflix confirmed today to sources. “Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and exceptional cast including star Jon Bernthal, delivered an acclaimed and compelling series for fans, and we are proud to showcase their work on Netflix for years to come,” the streamer 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,” Netflix also made official this President’s Day. “We are grateful to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, star Krysten Ritter and the entire cast and crew, for three incredible seasons of this groundbreaking series, which was recognized by the Peabody Awards among many others”.

“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.”

Bernthal took to social media this morning to offer a cryptic farewell of sorts:

M3h, we knew it was coming. I loved Bernthal as Frank. His presence, his physicality, his verbal and physical tics he would do, it was just an amazing performance.

Charlie Cox was spot on too.

I would have loved to see what Cage did in a third season as the kingpin of Harlem, trying to keep his moral compass while having to do some ill ish to hold down his set.

Wanted more Colleen Iron Fist.

Jessica Jones bored me and I won't miss her.

Throwing it out there but I wonder if Disney will try and bank on the shows and release them on Blu-Ray/DVD with extras, behind the scenes and commentary?

You mean sort of a "Deluxe" release beyond what they've already done? I could see that, especially if fan demand was high enough.

Gone, but not forgotten. The DD and Punisher series provided some of the best entertainment on Netflix and arguably the greatest live action versions of the characters.

Do you have a source on that? Because as far as I've read that hasn't been confirmed, and shows have been known to be dropped by certain producers only to be picked up by a different studio. Especially with the rights in the right place.

I saw somewhere (unreliable source) that Disney had to wait a couple of years before being able to use any of the characters, but at least Charlie Cox has expressed interest in continuing Murdock's story.

Sorry, but it has been confirmed in several interviews, articles, etc. The Netflix arm of the MCU is gone. The casts and crew have moved on.

If you wanna keep a light on for them, bless your heart. Dean Paul Martin was dead and Courteney Cox half way through the last season of Family Ties before I finally gave up on Misfits of Science season 2.

No,they won't. It's already been announced the Netflix shows end with Netflix. There will be no revivals on other platforms. If the characters ever are used again, it won't be the versions from the Netflix shows.

I just assume that they'll all be on Disney's streaming service, which starts later this year.

If it makes you feel better, do what I do. Just tell yourself Matt, Karen, Foggy, Jess, Danny, Luke, Trish, Elektra, Colleen, and Frank were all dusted in the Snappening. Doesn't really make me any happier, but it does show the whole thing in tragically heroic light.
