Netflix has officially cancelled The Punisher after two seasons. It’s the news Marvel fans had been expecting for a while, but will they be expecting this latest twist?
Because, according to series star Royce Johnson, there’s still a chance that The Punisher will return in the future.Chatting to ComicBook.com as Frank Castle’s dust settled, Royce revealed that he and some of his co-stars were hopeful for the future. “[Marvel]’s got something in store,” he said.
Explaining his reaction to the show’s axe, Royce said: “Yeah, I’ve gotten… one call and two texts, saying, ‘It’s been a great journey’.
“We had a nice phone call, a nice chat, saying, ‘Hopefully, we’ll meet again down the line’. And it would be great if we could meet down the line as those same characters.”
Clearly hopeful for a Punisher reunion, the actor – aka Detective Sergeant Brett Mahoney – predicted: “I don’t think that Marvel is the type of company that will sit down and not revamp. It’s got something in store, so I’m wishing for the best with this.”
As well as pulling the plug on The Punisher, Netflix also confirmed that the upcoming third season of Jessica Joneswould be its last on the streaming service, following in the forlorn footsteps of Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.
