Officially, Marvel and Netflix announced they would be moving forward with The Punisher Season 1. Jon Bernthal played The Punisher aka Frank Castle on Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2 and will return to reprise his role in his own, The Punisher TV series. Writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot will serve as the showrunner. We also included Netflix’s The Punisher Season 1 teaser trailer video below.
Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb said:
We want to thank the fans who are clamoring for more of Jon’s stunning and powerful performance as Frank Castle from ‘Marvel’s Daredevil.’ Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot’s compelling writing, we’re thrilled to bring ‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ to Netflix.
Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Content added:
Jon hooked our global audience with his performance as Frank Castle from the moment he stepped on screen in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil,’ and we are looking forward to seeing more of him in this role under the vision of Steve Lightfoot.
Executive Producer and Showrunner, Steve Lightfoot went on to say:
For me, the complexity and unpredictability of Frank Castle make him an incredibly compelling character and I couldn’t be more excited to dive into his world. After watching Jon’s performance in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ I could not be more excited to be working with him to further develop and progress the story of this anti-hero in a show of his own.
