"No matter where you go, there you are."


The Punisher and Jessica Jones have been cancelled


With Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist having already been cancelled, this is not really that big of a surprise. However, it still is sad as I thoroughly enjoyed Jon Bernthal’s performance as Frank Castle and Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones.

Deadline had the news that The Punisher and Jessica Jones have both been cancelled over at Netflix, which means their Marvel shows have all come to an end.

We do still have Season 3 of Jessica Jones to watch, but then that will be it.

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

I do hope we get to see the same actors reprise their roles in some way. Maybe Marvel were waiting for all the Netflix shows to be cancelled and they will be announcing a new Marvel Knights series or something. There are rumours Hulu would like to bring them back at some point, but it seems that Marvel are focussing on their new streaming channels. They are working on shows involving Loki, Scarlet Witch & The Vision, and Falcon & The Winter Soldier.

Marvel TV also issued this statement:

It had never been done before. Four separate television series, each with different super-talented showrunners, writers, directors, cast and crew, coming out months apart and then …they would meet in a single event series all set in the heart of New York City. We called them The Defenders.

And together we were thrilled by stories of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and even the Punisher joined in! They said it couldn’t be done.But Marvel assembled amazing teams to write, produce, direct, edit, and score 13 seasons and 161 one-hour episodes. Take a moment and go online and look at the dazzling list of actors, writers, directors, and musicians who graced us with the very best of their craft.

We loved each and every minute of it.

And we did it all for you — the fans — who cheered for us around the world and made all the hard work worth it.

On behalf of everyone at Marvel Television, we couldn’t be more proud or more grateful to our audience. 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,” the company added.

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. To be continued…!

What was your favourite moment from all of the Marvel Netflix shows?
