Netflix has announced a January premiere for the second season of Marvel’s The Punisher. No specific date within the month was given, but The Punisher was included in a tease at the end of a video showing what’s coming to Netflix next month.
Considering that Netflix has already canceled Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil, this will likely be the final season for The Punisher. Jon Bernthal may be perfect as Frank Castle, but that won’t be enough to save the show from the deteriorating partnership between Netflix and Marvel.
Knowing that the odds of a third season are somewhere between slim and none allows us to view season two from the proper perspective. We shall approach and appreciate this next season of The Punisher as if it’s the last because it probably is.
