Punisher Series Confirmed

Netflix has confirmed rumors that a Punisher series is being developed. Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal) will serve as executive producer and showrunner. No word on a release date. Marvel head of television Jeph Loeb commented,
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.’ Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot’s compelling writing, we’re thrilled to bring Marvel’s The Punisher to Netflix.
Netflix Vice President of Original Content, Cindy Holland said,
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.
Steve Lightfoot commented,
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. 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.
