It seemed inevitable that the Punisher would get his own spinoff series on Netflix after the triumphant second season of Daredevil – and it was.

Fans of Jon Bernthal‘s portrayal of the ultra-violent Marvel vigilante Frank Castle will be over the moon to know that he will be back to raise hell once more with Hannibal writer Steve Lightfoot rumoured to be the showrunner.

“We want to thank the fans who are clamoring for more of Jon’s stunning and powerful performance as Frank Castle from ‘Marvel’s Daredevil,’” said Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, “Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot’s compelling writing, we’re thrilled to bring ‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ to Netflix.”

“For me, the complexity and unpredictability of Frank Castle make him an incredibly compelling character and I couldn’t be more excited to dive into his world,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner, Steve Lightfoot. “After watching Jon’s performance in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ I could not be more excited to be working with him to further develop and progress the story of this anti-hero in a show of his own.”
