When is The Punisher season 2 released on Netflix?
The second season was ordered just a month after the first finished. Fans hoping for a drop later this year may be disappointed, however.
With the second seasons of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones having already hit our screens in 2018 and the third season of Daredevil looking likely to be confirmed for autumn of this year, Frank Castle’s series could be crowded out.
Considering we had roughly a two-year wait for both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage’s second season – and more than a two-year wait (so far) for Daredevil’s third season – early 2019 doesn’t sound so bad, right?
Who is in the cast of The Punisher season 2?
Jon Bernthal (Frank Castle/The Punisher), Amber Rose Revah (Dinah Madani) and Jason R Moore (Curtis Hoyle) are all returning to their roles. Ben Barnes is also back on board as Billy Russo/Jigsaw.
There are newcomers too: Floriana Lima of Supergirl is joining as Krista Dumont, a psychotherapist for military veterans. Giorgia Whigham will play Amy Bendix and Josh Stewart has also joined the crew as John Pilgrim.
What will happen in The Punisher season 2?
In a similar fashion to how season one was kept firmly under wraps before its release, we don’t know an awful lot about what’s to come in season two.
We do know that after Billy and Frank’s epic fight scene at the end of season one (which led to Billy’s disfigurement) means we could yet see Jigsaw in his grizzly final form. Ben Barnes has also been seen filming scenes for season two, although another villain could yet take centre stage as the Marvel series looks to move beyond its season one storyline.
