Villainous news for Marvel fans: two of your fave superhero TV series have been axed via Netflix, The Punisher and Jessica Jones.

The Punisher‘s second season will sadly be its last and Jessica Jones will end after its upcoming third season.

“Marvel’s ‘The Punisher’ will not return for a third season on Netflix,” Netflix said in a statement.

“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.”

“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.’ 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.”

Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb also published a letter to fans shortly after the sad news went live, thanking viewers and saying, “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.”

The shock plug-pulling of these two shows follows the cancellation of Luke Cage and Iron Fist in October of last year and Daredevil, the first of the Netflix-Marvel partnership to debut in 2015, which was canned in December.
