Marvel’s "The Punisher" gets reloaded for second season

Posted on: December 13th, 2017 by ABC News No Comments

NetflixThe Punisher is locked and re-loaded: the Marvel Netflix show about the vigilante superhero has been renewed for a second season.

The streaming service made the announcement on the show’s Facebook page on Tuesday with a graphic of a skull — the hero’s logo — and the legend: “He’s just getting started. The Punisher will return for Season 2.”

The shoot-em-up series stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle — a Special Forces Marine who takes brutal revenge on the men who murdered his family, and just about every other criminal he comes across.

The character first appeared on the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man in 1974, but the fan favorite soon spawned his own books. Bernthal debuted his bruising portrayal of Castle in Season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix.

A season-two premiere date has yet to be announced.

For his part, Bernthal is ready. He tweeted: “Semper Fi. Let’s. Do. This.”

Marvel, like ABC, is owned by Disney.
