Netflix cancels The Punisher and Jessica Jones

And so ends the five years old partnership with Marvel Television, but could an open letter to fans tease a return elsewhere?

Netflix cancelled their Marvel shows left and right last year, leaving just The Punisher and Jessica Jones breathing. We all knew what was coming though, and now it's been confirmed.

The streaming company has announced that The Punisher's second season and the upcoming third season of Jessica Jones was and will be the last ones, as both shows have been cancelled. This marks the end of their five-year deal with Marvel Television, so the latter has posted an open letter to their fans. It's mostly Jeph Loeb, the president of Marvel Television, reminiscing about how it all started and thanking us for watching, but he also seems to give some hope for the future by including the following:

"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...!"

To be continued, eh? Is this Loeb just reiterating that he believes some of the shows will find new life elsewhere, or hints of actual plans? Of course, Netflix owns these shows as they are, so he may be hinting at a reboot. Who knows' but we'd definitely want to watch another season or two of some of the shows. How about you?
