The reports earlier today confirmed that Netflix would be ending its collaboration with Marvel. Jessica Jones and The Punisher were both cancelled as Netflix release a statement to Deadline.
Statement by Netflix:
“Marvel’s The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix,” Netflix shared. “Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and an 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.”
“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 continued. “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.”
Another statement was made by Marvel Entertainment about the kiss with the head Jeph Loeb stressing in the division’s work left to do.
Statement by Marvel Entertainment:
“We loved each and every minute of it,” Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb shared. “And we did it all for you — the fans — who cheered for us around the world and made all the hard work worth it.”
With The Punisher’s second season acting as its last, Netflix has one Marvel release under its belt. Netflix has confirmed it will air the third season of Jessica Jones. We don’t know the release date yet although the show completed its filming awhile back. The release of Jessica Jones will mark the final Marvel outing with Netflix. With Disney set to launch its own streaming service, characters like The Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, Loki will get their own solo series.
For now, we have the best fan reactions on the cancellation for you:
Won’t be long before I cancel my @netflix subscription. Getting rid of DareDevil, The Punisher, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage is an absolute joke.
