The American television series, The Punisher, was the first spin-off of the Marvel Netflix series Daredevil. Premiered in 2017, The Punisher earned immense appreciation for its engaging plot. While the unusual design and engaging plot of “The Punisher” immediately captured the audience’s imagination, the second season, which wrapped up in 2019, did not replicate the same impact as its predecessor; however, it ended up obtaining an Emmy nomination. With anticipation for The Punisher Season 3, we will dive into the details of the renewal of the season and the impact of “The Punisher.”

Will There be a Punisher Season 3?

Unfortunately, The Punisher has been cancelled by the OTT streaming giant, Netflix. The Punisher’s cancellation comes as a big shock to the cult fanbase of the show, which has been very popular since the time it began. Apart from the high viewership and cult following, The Punisher boasts a Rotten Tomato rating of 65 per cent and iMDB ratings of 8.5.

However, the decision to discontinue the series was influenced by multiple factors. Owing to Marvel’s transforming trends, the series was scrapped from Netflix, eventually leading to a cancellation of The Punisher Season 3. Owing to it, the shift focused on MCU content, prompting speculation that Disney+ can revive the series. However, since Disney+ focuses on more “family-like content” posing a challenge for “The Punisher’s” mature themes.
