Netflix renews The Punisher for season two
Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle will be back for round two. Netflix announced today on Twitter that The Punisher will return.
There's little detail on what the second season might entail, but show runner Steve Lightfood recently gave his suggestions on new villains for Castle to face off against.
"One of the villains I love is Barracuda [from Garth Ennis’ Punisher MAX series]. I think he’s great fun. I also really like O’Brien. I thought she was always really cool. Certainly those two jump out at me initially, but there are so many great characters there. It’s a very fun sandbox to play in."
It will likely be a 2019 debut for The Punisher season two, with Jessica Jones returning in March 2018, followed by Luke Cage season two and Daredevil season three. The announced second season of Iron Fist will also likely air before The Punisher.
In the meantime, catch up on our review of season one here.
