Or there’s the swansong of A Series of Unfortunate Events and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which are both returning for one final stand before drawing to a close.The anticipated continuation of Star Trek: Discovery will air weekly on Netflix in the UK, with The Punisher– one of the streamer’s remaining Marvel shows – seeing Jon Bernthal return as the titular villain for what will most likely be the final time before Disney+ puts an end to it.
