No Season 3 for the Marvel superhero drama.
February 18, 2019
It's the end of the Marvel era at Netflix. The streaming service today cancelled both The Punisher and Jessica Jones, the two remaining series in its superhero lineup based on the comic giant's work. The move was somewhat expected after Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist were all given the ax late last year.
The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal as former Marine Frank Castle, who was originally introduced in the second season of Daredevil, as a no-nonsense hero who deals out his own brand of justice. Known throughout New York City as The Punisher, Frank is out to find the criminals responsible for the murder of his family and uncover the truth about a military conspiracy that affects more than just those he loves.
The action drama was the fifth original series on the streaming service based on a character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Its second, and now final, season premiered earlier this year.

Netflix does NOT own the license for DareDevil. It was produced/written and made in collaboration with Netflix The Owners of the series have already said that they are going to push for another service to finance it and pick it up. To be honest, this is a great example of over saturation of one thing. DareDevil was one of the best. It did well, so, Netflix went out an made 65 other Marvel series and over-saturated the TV series market. When they should have just made a couple at a time. They could have increased the interest and financial gain for at least 5-10 years. But, it's all about "I want my stuff and I want it all now."
I think DareDevil and possibly Punisher will get picked up from another streaming service. But ALL of the others won't. Which is great because they royally SUCKED dirty Wolverine balls.

In all reality who is still paying for anything?

They dumped them all. However the lack of costumes was very annoying to me, as if superheroes should not have them. Still this situation of dumping these series is not a good thing imo.

Make no mistake, its entirely Netflix's choice to end these series. They hold the licensing and production... however... this is 100% Disneys fault. In 2013 when Daredevil was picked up, Disney had no plans for ANY MCU tie-ins on its streaming service, so Netflix was creating entertainment exclusively for its own platform... now they would be making MCU content that would inevitably lead to Disney+ promotion. I (for one) do not blame Netflix in the least, i would have done the same thing, and since i refuse to purchase... another... streaming... service... it looks like my MCU fandom with end with Endgame. No point in continuing down a Rabbit Hole my fat ass cant afford to fit through...

I get the frustration, but Disney announced it's streaming service and it's purchase of Marvel long ago, so no one should be surprised.

Yes it's been removed probably because of the Disney service coming up, but as of right now there are no plans to reintroduce them on the new platform. And I think it's in the contract that they would have to wait a couple of years anyway.

Damn you Netflix.

I can't help but laugh at all the disparaging comments regarding Netflix. Disney has the rights to Marvel. It is Disney's doing to take these Marvel shows off Netflix, to most likely have them on their new and upcoming streaming channel. So chill out people.....Netflix is alive and well and doing tons more stuff. They need to now based on their competitions out there from Amazon Prime Channel and Crave.
