Marvel’s The Punisher is one of the most popular superhero television series to stream on Netflix. They received immense attention, which prompted Netflix to renew the series for a second season, which was also popular. The second season left fans wanting more, and now fans eagerly await for the third season.
About the series
It is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. The series revolves around a vigilante named Frank Castle. Castle first exacts revenge against those responsible for the death of his family. However, he unearths a more massive underground conspiracy beyond what was done to him and his family in the process of doing so. Castle uses lethal methods to fight crime as The Punisher.
Critics gave mixed reviews to The Punisher. There was positive reception among Marvel fans despite the mixed reception. The series enjoyed a successful two-season run on Netflix as a result. The series won a Saturn Award for Best Streaming Superhero Series and received an Emmy Award nomination for its fantastic action sequences.
About season three
On February 18, 2019, Netflix canceled The Punisher after two seasons. Netflix also canceled other shows such as Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. This, however, doesn’t rule out the possibility of the show continuing on Disney+ since Marvel Studios have reacquired creative control for all the characters.
Marvel Studios are currently developing many series for the new online streaming platform, Disney+. These include The Falcon And Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki. Also, these series have been made for characters that haven’t got their solo films yet. So there is a possibility that Marvel Studios could bring back The Punisher for a third season on Disney+ instead of Netflix. Only time can tell whether this can happen.
Who will return?
The cast from the first two seasons may return for the “likely to happen” third season. The cast members include Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle / The Punisher, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as David Lieberman / Micro, Ben Barnes as Billy Russo / Jigsaw, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Daniel Webber as Lewis Wilson, Paul Schulze as William Rawlins / Agent Orange, Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle, Michael Nathanson as Sam Stein, Jaime Ray Newman as Sarah Lieberman, Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim, Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont, Giorgia Whigham as Amy Bendix, Corbin Bernsen as Anderson Schultz, Annette O’Toole as Eliza Schultz, Jordan Dean as Jake Nelson and Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page.
When will season three release?
There is no update on the release date of season three yet. Everything rests in the hands of Marvel Studios. It is entirely up to them regarding the renewal of the series. For now, fans can only hope that Marvel Studios renews The Punisher.
The Punisher was a unique and realistic superhero action series, unlike any other. If it is renewed, it will be back with a bang and filled with the action and story that everyone wants! It’s only a matter of some time to wait for the fans.
