This should be to no one’s surprise, but the reigns on the Disney + Marvel owned franchises continue to shift and tighten. News has come out that Netflix brings Jessica Jones and The Punisher the same fate of Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in the land of cancellation-
The Punisher will not be getting a third season on Netflix.
Marvel’s Jeph Loeb spoke on the cancellation:
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. 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.’”
Jon Bernthal also thanked the cast, crew in his farewell from the cancelled The Punisher series:

To all who have served. All who know loss. All who love and understand Frank and his pain. It has been an honor to walk in his boots. I’m endlessly grateful to the comic fans and the men and women of the Armed Services and law enforcement community who Frank means so much to. Thank you to the USMC and all the wonderful soldiers who trained me. Go Hard. Be safe.
Disney+ is imminent, surely.
