Over the past couple of months the Marvel/Netflix shows have been cancelled one by one and today Netflix has officially cancelled the two remaining shows, “Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher.” Fans have speculated that the shows are being cancelled on Netflix so that they can be added to Disney’s upcoming streaming platform Disney+ or on Hulu which is owned by Disney, but no statements have been made to confirm or deny these claims.

I had a lot of fun with the universe they were able to build on Netflix, every show had its ups and downs but I really enjoyed all of the shows overall and I hope to see these characters and their stores continue.

Read Jeph Loeb’s letter to the fans below!

It had never been done before.
Four separate television series, each with different super-talented showrunners, writers, directors, cast and crew, coming out months apart and then...
...they would meet in a single event series all set in the heart of New York City.
We called them The Defenders.
And together we were thrilled by stories of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and even the Punisher joined in!
They said it couldn’t be done.
But Marvel assembled amazing teams to write, produce, direct, edit, and score 13 seasons and 161 one-hour episodes.
Take a moment and go online and look at the dazzling list of actors, writers, directors, and musicians who graced us with the very best of their craft.
We loved each and every minute of it.
And we did it all for you — the fans — who cheered for us around the world and made all the hard work worth it.
So, Thank You!
On behalf of everyone at Marvel Television, we couldn’t be more proud or more grateful to our audience.
Our Network partner may have decided they no longer want to continue telling the tales of these great characters... but you know Marvel better than that.
As Matthew Murdock’s Dad once said, “The measure of a man is not how he gets knocked to the mat, it’s how he gets back up.”
To be continued...!
