EW released the news that Marvel has ordered a spin-off based off of the vigilante, who was first introduced during this season of Daredevil. Jon Bernthal received positive buzz for his take on the role as Frank Castle, the vengeful military veteran who takes the law into his own hands with his brand of justice in Hell’s Kitchen. The new series will have the actor return to headline the series as the character continues to work in the city as a vigilante. Writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot will be the showrunner of the upcoming series.
Marvel’s The Punisher will be the sixth series between Marvel Television and Netflix, which includes the upcoming Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the crossover miniseries The Defenders. Jessica Jones and Daredevil were the first to come out from the deal, launching on the streaming service in the last two years.
