Despite some questionable denials by those involved with Marvel TV, a Netflix Punisher series is actually happening with a first season officially on the way.
Marvel confirmed the news today that was initially reported by EW. Naturally Jon Bernthal will return as Frank Castle with Steve Lightfoot of Hannibal in charge of the series.
Right now it’s not known if Frank Castle will join the rest of the Defenders in their mini-series. It likely depends on where this first season of The Punisher lands in relation to the team-up mini-series. With this season coming soon, it’s likely we’ll see it following a second season of Jessica Jones.
