The Punisher: Season 3 canceled - Marvel and Netflix partnership ended

Shortly after the start of the first season of "The Punisher" it was clear that a second season would follow. However, given the current situation, it is more than questionable whether there will be a third season of the armed anti-hero who would prefer to take the law into his own hands.

Update from 02/19/2019, 10:20 a.m .: As Netflix has now officially announced to Deadline, it will there is no longer a third season of "The Punisher". Likewise, the third season of "Jessica Jones" will be the series finale for Marvel's super detective. Overall, the partnership between Marvel and Netflix has ended after five years, six different series and over 150 hours of superhero material.

It doesn't look good for Marvel's superhero series on Netflix - as is the case with The Punisher. As Disney prepares for its own streaming service, Netflix is ​​gradually leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "Daredevil", "Luke Cage" and "Iron Fist" will not get another season on Netflix. And currently it doesn't look any better for “Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher” either.

“That is not our decision. [...] We have a fantastic cast. We have a fantastic team of writers and a great crew. [...] At the end of the day it is like every show, but the decision of Netflix. We are committed to the broadcaster, and it is the broadcaster who decides whether we should continue or not. "
