Netflix Just Officially Parted Ways With Marvel
The Netflix and Marvel TV relationship has come to a sad end.
The streaming service announced today that it would be cancelling its two remaining Marvel series -- The Punisher and Jessica Jones.
Netflix has previously axed Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Daredevil from the Marvel universe, but now it seems the partnership has come to a firm close.
"Marvel's The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix," the streaming service said in a statement via The Hollywood Reporter.
"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.
In what sounds a lot like a breakup letter, Netflix said "thank u, next" to Marvel and wished it all the best in the future.
"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 said.
And while the streaming giant seems to be ready to see other people, Marvel fans are not taking the breakup news...well.
Fans are hopeful that Disney's new streaming service will swoop in to take Netflix's place. But the original deal that was inked means that Marvel characters can't appear on any non-Netflix shows for two whole years, according to Variety.
So you can tearfully mark 2021 in your diaries as you watch old eps of your favourite Marvel shows.
