Netflix’s second season of Marvel’s The Punisher will debut on January 18, 2019. The much-anticipated season two of the comic book-inspired series’ premiere date announcement arrived with a one-minute video featuring series star Jon Bernthal and photos from the new season.
“Someone told me once life is just trying not to be lonely,” says Bernthal as Frank Castle in the new video. “They need to let me be what I’m meant to be. I’m not the one who dies. I’m the one who does the killing.”
Season two of the action drama features Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle, Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim, and Floriana Lima as Dr. Krista Dumont. Hannibal‘s Steve Lightfoot guides season two as showrunner, writer, and executive producer.
Netflix recently confirmed they’re ending the Marvel productions Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Luke Cage starring Mike Colter ran for two seasons. Iron Fist with Finn Jones also lasted two seasons before being cancelled by the streaming service.
The Punisher Plot:
Frank Castle (Bernthal) can run but he can’t hide from who he’s meant to be. Season two finds Frank in all too familiar territory. With Castle’s former brother-in-arms Billy Russo (Barnes) slowly beginning to heal from the traumatic brain injury Frank inflicted on him, it’s only a matter of time before Billy starts to put the pieces of the puzzle back together.
In season two, former marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace a life as The Punisher.
