However, it seems like the premiere date may have been revealed by one of Netflix’s social media account. A now-deleted tweet from the streamer’s official Middle East and North Africa account on Twitter suggests that all the thirteen episodes of The Punisher Season 2 will be released on this January 18. You can check out a screenshot of the tweet below (via ScreenRant)!
During Collider’s visit to the show’s set, showrunner Steve Lightfoot revealed to them that the upcoming season won’t start off in New York. Instead, it will begin with Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle on a tour of the United States as he is getting a look at the country he fought for but has never really seen.
However, he won’t get to enjoy his vacation from violence for long as the inaugural episode will provide him with a new fight. Lightfoot also claimed that the theme of The Punisher Season 2 is about Frank really adopting the mantle of The Punisher.
Along with Bernthal’s titular antihero, Season 2 will see the return of Ben Barnes’ Billy Russo, Amber Rose Revah’s Dinah Madani and Jason R. Moore’s Curtis Hoyle. The season will introduce a bunch of new characters like Josh Stewart’s John Pilgrim, Floriana Lima’s Krista Dumont, Giorgia Whigham’s Amy Bendix, as well as Corbin Bernsen and Annette O’Toole’s Anderson and Eliza Schultz.
