Marvel and Netflix have released the full trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher Season 2, which sees Frank Castle hitting the road as he tries to move on from his past. However, Frank can’t leave the vest behind when trouble finds him, bringing him back to his old life with a new mission and a sidekick he never asked for.
Former Marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace a life as The Punisher.
In the first season of The Punisher, Castle was seemingly free to resume his life without fear of prosecution, thanks to a Presidential pardon. We don’t know what will cause Castle to reclaim his Punisher persona, but it likely has something to do with Billy Russo’s return as Jigsaw — complete with a new mask. Amber Rose Revah’s Dinah Madani and Jason R. Moore’s Curtis Hoyle are the only other cast members officially returning from the show’s first season.
Annette O’Toole and Corbin Bernsen are also joining the show as Eliza and Anderson Schultz, respectively. Giorgia Whigham will portray Amy Bendix, with Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont, and Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim. Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal) serves as showrunner, writer, and executive producer.
The Punisher Season 2 will launch on Netflix on January 18, 2019.
