In the wake of the nail in the coffin cancellations of Jessica Jones and The Punisher, the stars and crew members of Marvel’s final two Netflix shows followed Punisher star Jon Bernthal’s example, posting their eulogies for their shows and their thanks to their fans.
After news broke that The Punisher would be ending after January’s second season and Jessica Jones’ upcoming third season would be its last, those from all corners of the shows’ productions came out to pay their respects. Sometimes it was a bloody Ben Barnes, sometimes it was Krysten Ritter at a table read, sometimes it was even from the show’s social media account itself — all mourned two of the streamer’s best superhero offerings.

Jessica Jones’ third season is coming to Netflix later this year.
