Netflix Officially Announces January Premiere Date For ‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ Season 2 With New Trailer
It’s been one of the worst-kept secrets, but Netflix has finally officially announced Season 2 of ‘Marvel’s The Punisher‘ will arrive in January to the streaming service.
Former Marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham – ‘Scream: The TV Series’). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace life as “The Punisher.”
Steve Lightfoot (‘Hannibal’) serves as showrunner, writer and executive producer. The cast also features Ben Barnes (Billy Russo), Amber Rose Revah (Dinah Madani), Jason R. Moore (Curtis), Josh Stewart (John Pilgrim), and Floriana Lima (Dr. Krista Dumont).
It seems extremely likely this will be the final outing for ‘The Punisher’, at least on Netflix, given the fate of the other Marvel shows, which were recently cancelled. ‘The Punisher’ and ‘Jessica Jones’ are the only two left standing, but that is mainly due to them having already filmed their next seasons, so it seems likely we’ll get cancellation announcements after they have aired.
‘Marvel’s The Punisher‘ Season 2 premieres Friday, 18th January 2019 on Netflix UK and worldwide.
