The renewal comes less than a month after the Nov. 17 debut of the Jon Bernthal-led show’s 13-episode first season.
Coming before an as-yet unspecified third season of Daredevil and Season 2 of both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, the Punisher series was launched after the vigilante character was first introduced in Season 2 of the Charlie Cox-led show.
The series is very violent, and its New York Comic-Con panel in October was cancelled because of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
First introduced in the comics by Marvel in The Amazing Spider-Man in 1974, former soldier Frank Castle ruthlessly hunts down the criminal underworld and far more. Losing his family to killers in the series, the incredibly well-armed Punisher takes few prisoners, if you know what I mean.
The Punisher TV series features The Walking Dead alum Bernthal, plus Daredevil & The Defenders alum Deborah Ann Woll reprising her role as Karen Page. Westworld‘s Ben Barnes and Girls‘ Ebon Moss-Bachrach also appear in the Jeph Loeb executive-produced show.
