Netflix’s “The Punisher” is returning on January 18th, and fans of the series can watch the official trailer for the new season below. “The Punisher” remains as one of the last Marvel properties on Netflix; the only other Marvel series that has another season on the way is “Jessica Jones.” Earlier this year it was confirmed that Netflix pulled the plug on “Daredevil,” “Luke Cage,” and “Iron Fist.” Netflix teased the Punisher: Season 2 trailer on YouTube adding “Back on the job. Back in the fight,” luckily for fans, the January 18th premiere date is just a few days away at this point. The last time we checked in with The Punisher was back on January 3rd when Netflix released the first teaser trailer for the new season; now fans can get a preview of his next opponent named Jigsaw.
While “The Punisher” is going into Season 2, “Jessica Jones” will be entering into Season 3 later this year. It seems unlikely that either show will continue after those seasons come to a close. Netflix has been chopping down Marvel series ahead of the Disney+ streaming service which is scheduled to debut sometime this year.
Even if Netflix decides to sever all ties with Marvel and Disney, causing the streaming service to shut down “Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher,” there will be new Marvel series to watch on Disney+. That streaming service is also bringing us the Star Wars live-action series “The Mandalorian.” Disney hasn’t announced an exact premiere date at this time, and we still don’t know the pricing for that service.
No matter what happens, “The Punisher” fans still get at least one more season to watch. Now we just need a release date for “Jessica Jones.”
