The show's upcoming third season will be its last.
February 18, 2019
It's the end of the Marvel era at Netflix. The streaming service today cancelled both Jessica Jones and The Punisher, 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.
Jessica Jones follows a troubled former superhero rebuilding her life by starting her own detective agency in New York City's Hell's Kitchen. The series premiered in 2015 as the second Marvel superhero series on the streaming service.
Following in Daredevil's footsteps, the show garnered widespread praise from both critics and audiences for its gritty storytelling and portrayal of the flawed antihero. It took over two years for Season 2 to premiere, and while overall feedback was still positive, the consensus was that it took a step back from its freshman run.
Jessica Jones was picked up for Season 3 last April and filming has already completed. Netflix still plans to release the third and final season of the show, though a premiere date has not been set.

Ken_In_Las_Vegas, that’s not the reason why they’re canceling the all the Marvel series, it’s because Disney, who owns Marvel, will be creating their own platform this year and it will be moving over there. Not everything revolves around your president. Bet you’re really upset that they offered Barack Obama a multimillion dollar contract to produce his own shows.

Now that Michael and Barry are running things at Netflix, we should probably expect all decent shows to be canceled and then replaced with new shows that promote the "social justice agenda" and/or disparage the president at every opportunity. If they can't cancel a show then they will morph it into something that promotes the message they want. Evidently, losing half of their audience does not seem to bother Netflix.

Well netflix has other projects it seems. Still a good show ,but the lack of costumes bothered me.

Everyone keeps trying to blame Netflix, but this is solely Disneys fault. When Netflix started Daredevil, Disney had no plans to run live action Marvel on any of its platforms, when they announced last year they were bringing not only one, but several MCU live action shows to Disney+, the Street Heroes series would effectively be advertisements for a competitors platform - it would be like BK agreeing to continue to sell Whoppers if Whoppers became their own fast-food chain... I (for one) place zero blame with Netflix, its one thing to help promote live TV competition (which they dont think is competition,) but its another entirely to help fund a direct challenger.

I was expecting this since Disney bought Marvel and has been saying they'll start their own streaming service.

A show about a drunk, sex crazy drug addict for 9 of 10 episodes per season with the final episode having some mediocre superhero stuff. Waste of space on Netflix's roster, glad to see it gone. Rachael Taylor is 100x's the actress Ritter is, they should have cast her as Jessica not Ritter.

will leave final judgement until after seeing season 3 because am much as i like season 2 it left to many loose ends and had a lot flaws, of which many where extremely annoying but hopefully season 3 is a good send of and is better than season 2.
