Well, if the critical acclaim that Jon Bernthal got for his performance for The Punisher in season 2 of Daredevil wasn’t enough for you, Netflix has decided that we all need more. The announcement came earlier this morning from a tweet from Netflix’s twitter.
They have ordered for a full season of “The Punisher” series staring Bernthal. Daredevil season 2 was definitely well received, particularly Bernthal’s interpretation of Frank Castle. The majority of fans could not get enough of Bernthal as Punisher. And while his show was not originally planned, it is now the 5th Marvel Netflix series; alongside Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders.
The showrunner for the new series is Hannibal’s Steve Lightfoot. And considering how gore that was for network tv … oh man!
No date as to when The Punisher will hit Netflix, but given the popularity of Jessica Jones and Bernthal’s Punisher … it is likely to see them next year.
