For Marvel fans, the recent Netflix cancellations of Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist got them worried. With two Marvel shows left on the streaming service, they had strong suspicions of those being removed, too. Unfortunately, Netflix decided to pull the plug on those beloved series.

The Punishment’s Due

The Punisher and Jessica Jones have both been canceled by Netflix. Season two of The Punisher was released last month to mixed reviews. This season saw a 52% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes. Last year, the show earned its first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Limited Series, or Movie.

When it comes to the string of cancellations, Punisher star Jon Bernthal knew it’s part of the business. “Whatever is happening with these shows, these decisions are being made in rooms I’m not invited into and I’m OK with that,” he told Variety.

We Saw It Coming

For Jessica Jones, the writing was on the wall when showrunner Melissa Rosenberg announced her departure. With Rosenberg’s help, the show became a critical darling and earned two Emmy nominations.

“Writing this character, and writing for Krysten Ritter and this cast, I’d have to say, is my dream job. It’s the best job in town,” Rosenberg told Vulture in 2018. She exited the series for an eight-figure deal with Warner Bros.

One Last Journey

Jessica Jones‘ third and final season will be released sometime this year. “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,” Netflix said in a statement.

With the Fox/Disney deal, rumors have been swirling about these characters resurfacing on Hulu one day. Whatever the case may be, an acclaimed five-year relationship between Netflix and Marvel is now over.
