punisher

Netflix is making a 'Punisher' TV series.

The character recently appeared in the Netflix series 'Daredevil'. Buoyed by the positive reception the character received, Marvel and Netflix have decided to give him his own series.

Jon Bernthal will return as Frank Castle, aka Punisher. He'll be on hand to dispense his own lethal form of justice to ne'er-do-wells in New York's Hell's Kitchen.

Writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot ('Hannibal', 'Casualty') will be the showrunner.

'Punisher' will be the sixth collaboration between Marvel and Netflix. The two have previously worked together on 'Jessica Jones' and 'Daredevil', and the forthcoming 'Luke Cage', 'Iron Fist' and 'The Defenders' (which will feature an ensemble cast of the previous shows' characters).

There's no word on whether Punisher will join the line-up of 'The Defenders'. But we would bet on it.
