Jessica Jones has joined Marvel siblings The Defenders, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Daredevil and The Punisher on Netfllx’s brutal list of TV shows cancelled.
As expected, the streaming company has opted not to renew the superhero series for Season 4, making the upcoming third season — which will still air — its last.
The cancellation of Jessica Jones completes Netflix’s cleaning house of all its Marvel superhero shows.
Marvel chief Jeph Loeb reflected on the legacy of the cancelled Netflix shows, while hinting at a revival elsewhere:
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.
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,” the company added.
