Marvel’s The Punisher renewed for a second season

The Punisher- Jon Bernthal

Frank Castle aka The Punisher will return!

After receiving mixed reviews, Marvel has decided to renew Netflix’s The Punisher for a second season. Marvel announced the news today via their The Punisher social media. 

The series, led by Jon Bernthal, premiered last month (November 17th) with 13-episodes. Bernthal’s character was first introduced in the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil and received so much praise that it was inevitable for Castle to have his own spin-off series.

The Punisher showrunner, Steve Lightfoot, expressed his excitement of the return of the series.

The Punisher is the sixth Marvel series on Netflix alongside Daredevil (going on its third season), Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and the team collaboration series, The Defenders. Fans are still waiting on an announcement for the second season of The Defenders, but we have a feeling that it could happen and if it does, Bernthal’s Castle would be down to participate.

No word if the others involved in the series will return, but it is highly likely since we last saw Billy the Beaut (Westworld’s Ben Barnes) wrapped up in bandages. As the comics shows, Billy eventually becomes Jigsaw, the archnemesis of The Punisher. As for Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), it will depend on how much the other series she is involved in – Daredevil and The Defenders, but this will also be likely. As for Ebon Moss-Bachrach’s David aka Micro, we hope to see him and his family. This seems likely as well. But, we don’t know for sure.

Marvel’s The Punisher Official Synopsis:

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
