The Punisher was without a doubt one of the biggest breakout stars from the Marvel/Netflix collaborations. And that’s saying something, as there’s been a lot of great characters in those series. However, Frank Castle, played by Jon Bernthal, was brought in as a side character for Season 02 of Daredevil, then was so beloved by fans and critics that he got greenlit for his own series, which aired last November to much critical acclaim. Then, less than a month later, it got approval for a second season, which apparently is going to film very soon.
According to Spoiler TV, the second season of Punisher is going to start filming on February 26th, then will finish in July. The question here is when the season itself will air. We know that Jessica Jones returns in March, Luke Cage is set to arrive later this year, Daredevil Season 03 is in the works now, as well as Iron Fist Season 02. So, when would Punisher fit into all that? It’s hard to say. It could be that three will air this year, and then the other two will air next year before the potential arrival of Defenders Season 02.
Regardless though, it’ll be good to see Frank Castle back together again.
