Ever been surprised at the production of a show within two months after it’s been released? Well, that’s exactly what happened with The Punisher. In December 2017, Netflix renewed the show for Season 2. I mean the show has been stellar, so renewal hardly came as a surprise. The Punisher involves the story of John Bernthal in Daredevil Season 2. After John features in Daredevil, he eventually got his own show in Marvel only to be loved by one and all. First Season of The Punisher came out in 2017, and the rest they say is history. Steven Lightfoot, the creator behind The Punisher, also has hinted at how Season 2 will include 13 episodes, on the least.
Unfortunately we do not have a release date for Punisher Season 2. It comes from the Marvel Universe, so the release is dependent upon other shows from Netflix. Now Daredevil release date was recently announced. So first we saw Iron Fist and then we saw Daredevil and later we get to see The Punisher. Daredevil Season 3 out on October 19, one may expect The Punisher to be out in Feb of 2019. This is because Marvel takes a three month gap in between it’s TV shows.
The Punisher Season 2: Plot
For Season 2 we know that Ben Barnes (Jigsaw) will play a bigger role in Daredevil as was hinted to us in a video out in May. Ben was seen included in the video of “Iconic Comic Villains in Action.” Last we heard Steve Lightfoot hadn’t zeroed in on who the main Villain was going to be. He tossed around a few names like Barracuda and O’Brien. So with Jigsaw’s plot being considerably reduced here, Marvel has been tight on the spoilers. Although, Jigsaw will definitely feature in Season 2 of The Punisher.
Frank will be seen up and about punishing Villains left, right and center. Last we saw, he left the Trident after successfully having avenged his family. But in Season 2, a more significant threat will obviously haunt him.
The Punisher Season 3: Cast
For now Season 2 you may expect the following:
Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle aka The Punisher
Ben Barnes as Billy Russo
Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani
Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle
Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim
