Jessica Jones and The Punisher Cancelled by Netflix. The cancellation of these two shows finalizes the separation between Netflix and Marvel Television.

This comes as no surprise after the announcement by Disney, Marvel Televisions parent company, about creating its very own streaming service called Disney+, set to begin streaming later this year. Since the two companies will be parting ways it was only natural that Netflix would choose to stop production on Marvel or Disney related content.

Before the decision was made The Punisher‘s Jon Bernthal stated he was “at peace” with whatever the outcome would be. After the announcement was made about the show’s cancellation Bernthal posted this message to his followers and fans of the series via his Instagram.

Netflix had this to say,“Marvel’s The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix. 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. 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.”

Netflix had previously cancelled Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Defenders, and Daredevil. It was only a matter of time before the decision would be made to also cut Jessica Jones and The Punisher as well.

Disney has made no formal announcement about the fate of these series but has hinted at the possibility that “high quality” content could make its way to Disney+. The head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, also wrote a letter to fans and hinted at that very possibility. “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,” he wrote. “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…!”
