The Future Of Marvel On Netflix: Which Shows Will Survive To 2019?

Published

on

Netflix is inarguably the most popular streaming service globally. With over 137 million subscribers in the third quarter of 2018, they are paving the way for modern TV entertainment. With such a strong following, getting shows on Netflix is a big deal. Marvel has recently attempted to make a splash, but not all of their shows are doing so well. Here are the programs you will and won’t see from Marvel in 2019.

Still Happening – Jessica Jones (Season 3)

Jessica Jones has been a hit on Netflix, with authentic portrays of female power and mental illness in a realistic fantasy world. The first season was a hit, but season two didn’t perform quite as well with slower pacing and no villain to drive the plot forward. However, fans’ enthusiasm for the show led Netflix to confirm a third season for 2019.

Canceled – Iron Fist

No one should be surprised by the news that Marvel’s Iron Fist was canceled. The show received terrible reviews across the board. The first season received the second lowest score ever on Rotten Tomatoes (19% rating), beating only ABC’s Inhuman series (12%). The second season showed some signs of improvement, but definitely not enough to compete with all of Netflix’s other series or earn them a third season.

Still Happening – The Punisher (Season 2)

The Punisher did very well in its first season, and Netflix has confirmed a season two for 2019. Filming for the season ended in August and will likely premiere early in 2019. The season one finale left off with plenty of room for creativity and plot progression. With the exception of the introduction of Jigsaw (Ben Barnes), we know very little about what season two has in store.

Canceled – Luke Cage

Luke Cage, the show about a superhuman with super skin and strength, was also canceled with Iron Fist. The show seemed to fare much better than Iron Fist, and many fans are wondering why it was canceled in the first place. Rumors have spread that Netflix and Marvel couldn’t agree on a creative direction and concrete terms for the third season, resulting in cancelation. Hopefully, fans still have these next shows to look forward to in the Marvel Universe.

What’s Still Up In The Air

Two shows remain unaccounted for 2019. There has been no official word on Daredevil season 4 or The Defenders season two. Daredevil has a much better chance than The Defenders, with audience approval much higher for the former. However, we won’t know for sure until the end of the year. And, there’s always a chance Marvel will bring new shows for us to love next year.
