‘The Punisher’ Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix

Series stars Jon Bernthal as Marvel Comics vigilante

Hot off a very well-received first season, Netflix has renewed “The Punisher” for a second season.

The Netflix Marvel series stars “The Walking Dead” alum Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, a vigilante out for revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children. Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ben Barnes and Amber Rose Revah also star.

Per usual with the streaming giant, no premiere date was announced for the show’s second season, but it’s likely to come in 2019 or later. Netflix’s 2018 Marvel slate is already packed, with “Jessica Jones” season 2 due March 8, followed later that year (TBA) by the second season of “Luke Cage” and the third season of “Daredevil.”

“The Punisher” is the sixth Netflix Marvel series, following “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist” and August’s superhero team-up “Marvel’s Defenders.” In July, Netflix renewed “Iron Fist” for a second season.

Produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios, “The Punisher” is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot, Jim Chory and Marvel Head of Television Jeph Loeb.
