It's only been less than a month since The Punisher premiered on Netflix and I know that some people are still in the process of getting through the first season, But, I'm excited to report that Netflix has officially renewed Marvel's The Punisher for Season 2!
The first season seemed to have been met with mixed reviews but I loved it! That was the best live-action adaptation of The Punisher yet and I can't wait to see what's in store for Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) in Season 2! One thing that I know we can expect is seeing him go on another insane killing spree.
The official Twitter account for The Punisher series posted a video with the big announcement. You can watch that below.
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.
The series is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal), Jim Chory (Marvel’s The Defenders) and Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s The Defenders), who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television. I imagine many of the cast members from the first season will return for Season 2.
Did you enjoy the first season of The Punisher and are you looking forward to Season 2? Is there a specific story from the comics that you would like to see told?
