The Punisher Season 3 ruled out due to coronavirus
Earlier, several reports online hinted towards the revival of The Punisher Season 3. Despite Gerry Conway (the maker of the show) claiming that there will be no The Punisher Season 3, people were still relentlessly hoping for the show’s renewal. But due to the shutdown of all Netflix premises across the country (USA), that plan too has gone for a toss forever.
In fact, an online petition was launched in order to urge the director of the show to renew The Punisher for season 3. In the online campaign, fans insisted that the show has scored Netflix’s top spot in terms of ratings and viewership. Plus, it’s Marvel!
But citing the present scenario, whatever even the little hopes that there was around Season 3’s renewal can be put to rest forever, courtesy COVID-19.
Meanwhile, there were other reasons too that lead to the show’s cancellation.
All hopes lost for The Punisher Season 3
The Punisher was Netflix’s number 1 hosted show at one point in time. According to Parrot Analytics, a rating aggregator website for all television and digital news noted that The Punisher was Netflix’s top show in October 2018. In fact, it scored over Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black in terms of ratings.
However, before coronavirus plagued the renewal of The Punisher Season 3, entry of another big player in the streaming services market spoiled half the game.
With the streaming war at its peak, Disney’s entry into the pre-dominantly Netflix owned market spoilt the other half of the game for Marvel’s The Punisher.
Since its launch, all of Marvel’s big films and series will now be debuting on Disney Plus. Therefore, wrecking all hopes for The Punisher’s Season 3 revival one-by-one.
The coronavirus bug bites the entertainment industry
Other multi-budget films like Mulan (Chinese Film) and James Bond: No Time To Die release dates have been pushed back for an indefinite time period. Other television projects hit by coronavirus is comedy series Grace and Frankie and Ryan Murphy’s film The Prom.
The production of Netflix’s Stranger Things Season 4 too, has been affected. Thus, resulting in the delay in its official release date.
