People Are Threatening To End Their Netflix Subscriptions After The Punisher Was Cancelled

Fans across the world have been devastated by the news that Netflix has decided to cancel The Punisher.

But they're certainly not just sitting idly by and crying into their Punisher skull pillow case, they're threatening action.

Viewers have flocked to social media to warn Netflix they will pull their subscription because of the decision. It's probably a hope that someone somewhere will revive it in the same way Brooklyn Nine-Nine was saved when it was axed by Fox.

Liam wrote on Twitter: "Won't be long before I cancel my @netflix subscription. Getting rid of DareDevil, The Punisher, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage is an absolute joke."

Mikenin added: "Excuse me while I go cancel my subscription to @Netflix for cancelling all the good stuff to keep stupid stuff bring back #ThePunisher for season 3!"

Luke said: "Yo @Netflix why did you cancel The Punisher? I literally bought a subscription just for that shit. But you lost my shit hopefully @Disney makes a deal with @Hulu."

In a statement to LADbible, the streaming service said: "Marvel's The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix. Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and exceptional cast including star Jon Bernthal, delivered an acclaimed and compelling series for fans, and we are proud to showcase their work on Netflix for years to come."

The statement also said Marvel's Jessica Jones would also not return to Netflix after its upcoming third season.

"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," it continued.

"We are grateful to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, star Krysten Ritter and the entire cast and crew, for three incredible seasons of this groundbreaking series, which was recognised by the Peabody Awards among many others.

"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."

Earlier today, Jon Bernthal also shared a mysterious message on Instagram - which many fans believed confirmed the cancellation of Netflix series The Punisher, following rumours that the show was not going to be renewed after the second season.

Netflix aired the second season of the show at the start of 2019, but rumours that it could be the last one started circling shortly after.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb and Steve Lightfoot, a showrunner for The Punisher, said they had left the coast clear for a third outing to follow the season two finale, but that the show's fate lay with Netflix.

"We have a whole story in mind that would be awesome, but again, the guns are locked and loaded, but Netflix has the finger on the trigger," Leob said.
