Things Look Bleak For THE PUNISHER As Viewership Numbers And Rotten Tomatoes Score Plummet

The Punisher being cancelled already seemed like a certainty given Netflix's relationship with Disney, and these latest numbers may have sealed Frank Castle's fate. Find out more details after the jump...

It's been clear for a while now that Marvel's TV shows on Netflix are, well, doomed, but a lot of fans are hoping that The Punisher somehow sticks around when all is said and done. 

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear as if that will be the case because a new report from analytics firm Jumpshot claims that viewership for season two is down a massive 40% compared to the weekend when the first batch of episodes premiered. To make matters worse, the show's Rotten Tomatoes score currently sits at a pretty mediocre 50%.

A combination of low viewership and bad ratings aren't going to do The Punisher any favours. 

While there's been some talk of Marvel using the characters elsewhere, we've also heard that Netflix has the exclusive rights to the Man Without Fear and company for at least the next two years. By that point, Marvel Studios may want to just reboot these heroes rather than putting them on ABC, Hulu, or even Disney+ (which will be the home of shows featuring characters from the movies).
