Several years ago, Netflix and Marvel had a partnership of sorts where Netflix created several TV series based on some of Marvel’s superheroes. This included Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the Punisher, but later on that partnership came to an end and no more new seasons were made.
Unfortunately, it seems that all of Marvel’s TV shows will be pulled from Netflix starting next month. We suppose that shouldn’t really come as a surprise as Disney probably wants all of its franchises and IPs back under its control, even though Netflix had a role in creating these series.
Since we aren’t privy to the contracts and licensing agreements, presumably the ability to pull these shows or to not renew the licensing agreement is part of the deal. That being said, we have to wonder if this could also mean that Disney might have plans to make their own series based on these characters.
We know that Daredevil is confirmed to be back in the MCU, and that Jon Bernthal is keen on reprising his role as the Punisher in the MCU, but what that means for the rest of the characters is unknown. In the meantime, if you haven’t watched those series yet, you’ve got about a week and a half before they’re gone for good, so it’s time to start binging.
