'Marvel's The Punisher' Officially Greenlit By Netflix

 Netflix has ordered a brand new Marvel series based on Jon Bernthal's Punisher from season 2 of Daredevil.  
Bernthal will return to reprise his role as Frank Castle in Marvel's The Punisher, with writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal, Casualty) serving as showrunner.

Here's the show's first teaser image and promo video:

"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 Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, in Marvel’s official statement. “Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot’s compelling writing, we’re thrilled to bring Marvel’s The Punisher to Netflix.”
Jon hooked our global audience with his performance as Frank Castle from the moment he stepped on screen in Marvel’s Daredevil, and we are looking forward to seeing more of him in this role under the vision of Steve Lightfoot,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Content.
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.

Marvel's The Punisher marks the sixth series ordered so far as part of the groundbreaking collaboration between Marvel Television and Netflix which started with Daredevil and Jessica Jones, and will continue with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders.
