Netflix’s MARVEL’S THE PUNISHER Renewed for Season 2, New Featurette Launched

Netflix’s MARVEL’S THE PUNISHER Renewed for Season 2, New Featurette Launched

After the success of the first season of its highly-anticipated Marvel’s The Punisher, it was no surprise when Netflix had The Punisher renewed for Season 2. You could also obviously count on Netflix to pull out all the publicity stops. With a new featurette that is now live streaming on the web-based platform, you know that the company is priming itself for what it hopes will be a successful run to its newly-found gem of a TV Show.

The byline of the show is familiar to anyway who knows a bit about the comics. It revolves around Frank Castle (The Walking Dead’s Jon Bernthal), who “after exacting revenge for those responsible for the death of his wife and children . . . uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld.  Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.” Indeed, as the first thirteen episodes of what we hope will be a long-running shelf life, we know that there is a military conspiracy at stake. So just what can we expect now with The Punisher renewed?

One thing we do know is that the producers behind the project (spearheaded by Steve Lightfoot from Hannibal as showrunner and including Jim Chory from Netflix’s other Marvel products) have put a lot behind the project. If you don’t believe us, check out the four minute long little video at the end of this post, where you see some of the cool efforts that have gone behind producing the first season. You know that much of this will come to bear in the second season, which does not currently have a release date.

In addition to Bernthal, The Punisher also stars Deborah Ann Woll (from Daredevil), Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia) and Michael Nathanson. Check out the clip below and let us know your thoughts about the renewal of the show!
