Marvel’s The Punisher is back on Netflix today as Frank Castle makes his grand return after a breakout, critically acclaimed first season.
Marvel’s The Punisher returns for its sophomore season on Netflix after becoming one of the streaming service’s fan favorites last time around with ease. The show hooked fans from its season 1 premiere and by the time they saw one of the coolest car chase scenes on a television series on episode 4, “Resupply” there was no going back… It was time to ‘binge’ the entire series in one go! You can watch all of season 2 (and season 1) of The Punisher by subscribing to Netflix.
Fans and acting peers alike including The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus celebrated Jon Bernthal hitting his portrayal out of the park. All Marvel fan eyes will be on The Punisher’s viewership numbers this season, as with the cancelation of Daredevil, the show succeeding is more vitally important than ever. The Punisher is now the go-to flagship show for Marvel on Netflix along with Jessica Jones being a popular series as well.
Frank Castle’s iconic Punisher skull symbol is instantly recognizable, even to those who’ve never watch any of Marvel’s Netflix shows before. It’s an attention grabber, a reason to subscribe to the streaming service which in turn, can potentially herald future shows from Marvel. Not to mention all those Walking Dead fans who miss Shane Walsh and somehow haven’t watched The Punisher yet should do so immediately.
Jon Bernthal recently told FanSided how humbling it is to hear that veterans appreciate his portrayal on the show and how they’re role models to him. He mentioned how rewarding it is to have real meaningful conversations and relationships with veterans.
"I think any time a vet opens up to you, not just sort of welcomes you into their world and teaches you how to shoot or use a weapon, or teaches you how guys talk to each other… But when they really start to open up and talk about their experience. That’s a treasure. I really cherish that, and I appreciate that."
