The Punisher Season 2 isn’t all that far away. Our wait is finally over. While Season 2 was confirmed back on 12 December 2017, it’s almost shot and ready to go into post productions soon. Season 1 of The Punisher was loved by one and all, critics and audiences alike. So the renewal news that we got in last December was a moderate surprise.
With a finale episode as satisfying as that, we hope that The Punisher Season 2 continues to live up to the expectations. Frank Castle ( Jon Bernthal) avenged his wrongdoers in the most badass way possible, and Frank doesn’t intend to stop there.
The Punisher follows the trajectory of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist (all Marvel shows) to air to Netflix. All these shows have been commissioned for second Seasons. Since Daredevil is to return in late 2018, we can’t hope the same for The Punisher. With The Punisher, do not expect it to come out anytime soon. I’ll safely place my bet on a 2019 release. Early 2019, is the best that we can hope for!
The Punisher: Iconic Skull Vest Seen On Sets
The Punisher (Frank Castle) knows no bounds. His rage is scary and satisfying at the same time. We see Frank played by Jon Bernthal in his iconic skull vest again. It means he’s here to kill his enemies with utmost precision while sticking to some sort of self-made moral code. Frank Castle is expected to fight it out against Billy Russo (Jigsaw). That should explain why the iconic skull photos are smeared with blood. There’s going to be more Killings and hence more blood.
The Punisher Season 2: Spoilers
Fans on the sets playing Jigsaw have spotted Ben Barnes. Also, we saw a video in May of ‘Iconic Comic Villains In Action’ in which Been Barnes figured. Nothing has been made public regarding the trajectory Ben is going to take. We’ll just have to wait.
In another significant spoiler, writer Steve Lightfoot was confused about who the villain was going to be. “One of the villains I love is Barracuda [from Garth Ennis’s Punisher MAX series]. I think he’s great fun. I also really like O’Brien. I thought she was always really cool. There are so many great characters there. It’s a very fun sandbox to play in,” said Steve. Who else could it be?
The Punisher Season 2: Cast
Following is the cast update on Season 2 of The Punisher:
Ben Barnes, Jon Bernthal are sure to figure. Actors Amber Rose Revah and Jason R Moore have both are slated to return as Dinah Madani and Curtis Hoyle. New additions to The Punisher include Floriana Lima of Supergirl’s fame, who will join the show as Krista Dumont, a psychotherapist. Besides her, Josh Stewart will enter as John Pilgrim, and Scream’s Giorgia Whigham will star as Amy Bendix. Frank’s dog Max will be seen in Season 2 finale episode too.
The Punisher Season 2: Release Date
Filming for Season 2 began in July of 2018. It’s currently in works, filming for the show is still going on as we saw in the recent pictures. Don’t worry we’ll discuss those later. Now, given that Netflix doesn’t announce release dates in prior, so I guess we’ll just have to wait patiently for an official announcement from the digital streaming service.
