Netflix Is Creating a ‘Punisher’ Spinoff Series!
Jon Bernthal is returning to play the militaristic antihero in his own series!
Today it was announced that the villain from season two of the hit Marvel series Daredevil will be getting his own show.
Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as vengeful military veteran Frank Castle, who brings his own lethal form of justice to Hell’s Kitchen.
Writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal, Casualty) will serve as showrunner.
Marvel’s The Punisher marks the sixth series ordered (so far) as part of the collaboration between Netflix and Marvel Television, including the upcoming Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the ensemble miniseries The Defenders – along with Jessica Jones and the aforementioned Daredevil. (And in case you’re wondering, as we are, whether Bernthal’s character will also be added to The Defenders lineup, that’s not yet clear – though it seems likely he’ll at least pop in for an appearance.)
