Marvel's 'The Punisher' Renewed For Second Season On Netflix


"The Punisher" received mixed reviews for its first season from critics, which premiered in November, aggregating 60 per cent critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the 94 per cent audience score painting a different picture among the show's diehard fanboy target audience.

Netflix announced the second season on its Twitter feed Tuesday afternoon.

And that's just what they did here. But Variety's Sonia Saraiya praised it, writing, "Thanks to Jon Berthal's seamless performance as the non-superpowered vigilante Frank Castle and showrunner Steve Lightfoot's sharp, conscious storytelling, "The Punisher" approaches the high points of "Marvel's Jessica Jones" by introducing a damaged, deadly character and telling his story as one piece of an unjust whole". The announcement video, above, doesn't include any sort of launch date for season 2; it is likely safe to assume it'll arrive around the end of 2018, though it isn't unheard of for Netflix to take longer than a year to bring about a new season. It's a nice look into the series, but I advise you not to watch unless you finished season one. "We'll literally see it on his face".

How far does the conspiracy go?

But Jigsaw isn't the only possibility.

The clip shows the cast talking about the motivations behind each of the main characters on the Netflix series. I also really like O'Brien. Prior to the violent revenge tale, Netflix released two seasons of Daredevil, single seasons of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, and the ensemble series The Defenders.

We'll update this when we have more information.
