The Punisher is back for season 2, and so is a very re-imagined version of Jigsaw.
Netflix has been teasing for months now that the second season of The Punisher was on the way, but no date was ever being nailed down. On Thursday the company finally ended our suffering and said that the new season will debut on January 18.
As the teaser indicates, Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) is back, and he clearly has become a new form of the Punisher’s classic villain, Jigsaw. Rumor is that we will never hear him called that in the show, and honestly, as codenames go, that’s fine with us. It has always sounded a touch silly.
Our suggestion is to enjoy it while you can as more than likely this will be the final season. With Netflix having already canceled Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Daredevil, it seems as though this series meeting an untimely end is only a matter of when it’s announced.
