The writing has been on the wall for a while, but now it is official – the Marvel/Netflix partnership is over.
Yep, according to Deadline, Netflix has cancelled The Punisher and Jessica Jones, ending a run of Marvel shows that dates back to the arrival of Daredevil in 2015.
According to reports, The Punisher will not receive a third season, while the third and final season of Jessica Jones will air later this year. These cancellations follow the demise of Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Daredevil and The Defenders, which have also aired on Netflix.
Netflix said: “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.”
To date, the Marvel/Netflix partnership has resulted in six different shows and 13 different seasons. These are as follows:
- Daredevil (Three seasons)
- Jessica Jones (Three seasons)
- Luke Cage (Two seasons)
- Iron Fist (Two seasons)
- The Defenders (One season)
- The Punisher (Two seasons)
The cancellations come as Disney/Marvel begins to shift its properties to its new digital streaming service.
