The news is not exactly surprising, given that Netflix appeared to be cleaning house of all things Marvel. As a result, there is the possibility than any or all four of the comic book shows could return sometime down the line on Disney's upcoming Disney+ streaming platform, but only time will tell.

Interestingly, his statement also indicated that it was Netflix's decision to drop the shows, and suggested that Marvel isn't done with the characters.

That's it for the Marvel-Netflix universe.

"The Punisher has been cancelled so can we take a moment to appreciate the incredible job Jon Bernthal [has] done as Frank Castle", one fan wrote on Twitter. Bernthal also paid tribute to all armed force members involved in the development of the series.

LaLiga: Why Barcelona played 1-0 against Real Valladolid - Ernesto Valverde
This was certainly not the performance Valverde will have wanted in the week he signed a surprise contract renewal at Camp Nou. Barcelona - Ter Stegen 5, Alba 6, Pique 7, Vermaelen 7, Roberto 6, Busquets 6, Alena 8, Vidal 6, Messi 5, Dembele 7, Boateng.

We called them The Defenders. "I've got a pretty good idea about what season 3 is, and I'm very excited about it". Chances are we may not know the truth, but you can bet that at some point we'll be seeing these characters pop up again. It's not like we're a doctor show where the show got canceled because of bad ratings. You can check out what they had to say below. I still hope that's the case. But The Punisher's second season, which debuted last month, will now be its last. Jessica Jones' season three release date is yet to be announced. The double cancellation rounds out Netflix's purge of Marvel content, which began in October with the axing of Iron Fist, then Luke Cage (both after two seasons), and finally Daredevil (after three seasons) in November.

Although we are all still yet to watch the third - and now final - season of Jessica Jones, and we were left even more conflicted over Frank Castle's thirst for revenge in the last scenes of The Punisher - saying farewell is going to be a little hard.

Still, the cancellation of The Punisher and Jessica Jones puts an end to an inconsistent but often brilliant collaboration between the two creative houses. Deadline reports that the ending of the upcoming third season "will serve as a savory series finale".

Now, Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb - the man responsible for bringing The Defenders, along with many other characters to the small screen - penned a letter celebrating all these characters that had a fruitful full years on the streaming service.
