Marvel’s The Punisher Season 3 Canceled

Punisher first appeared in the second season of “Daredevil” and was so much liked by the audience that it got its own series. The first season received mostly positive reviews and gained much popularity among Marvel fans. The success of the first season made Netflix order a second season for the show. The show is very dark and violent, and does not shy away from depicting brutal and haunting violence. The first season of the show premiered on Netflix on November 17, 2017. The show has been created by Steve Lightfoot.

  • The author of this article is ignorant. Netflix’s license with Marvel expires this year. There will not be a season 3 and it has nothing to do with a decision to cancel the series. You actually have to try to fail this hard as a “journalist”. @@
