The Punisher is an American Web TV series produced for Netflix by Steve Lightfoot. The series is based on a Marvel comic of the same name by Gerry Conway. It is based in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and filmed in New York City. It shares the storyline with other series of the franchise.
Thirteen episodes of season 1 were released on November 17, 2017. In December 2017, Netflix announced another season. Season 2 was released on January 18, 2019. Netflix canceled the series on February 18, 2019. Be that as it may, the series has received an emphatic response from the audience as well as critiques.
The Punisher trails along with the story of Frank Castle (played by Jon Bernthal) who uses dangerous ways to fight crime as ‘The Punisher’. In the second season, he has a tough call to make, whether to continue his life as the Punisher or not.
Since Netflix did not have any ownership stake of the Marvel TV Series, The Punisher along with some other Marvel series was canceled. Marvel shows are expensive and were not performing well with the streaming company.
Just because Netflix has canceled the series, this does not mean that the show will not get a chance on other platforms. It is still possible that Disney+ might revive the canceled Marvel Netflix series. Crain Erwich from Hulu, another online media streaming service claimed that they might be open to reviving the former Netflix series.
All said and done, there is no certainty about the release of another season of The Punisher. Marvel might not decide to proceed any further with this franchise.
Jon Bernthal might revive, along with other cast and crew members. As for trailers, nothing has been made official yet.
