Following the removal of Marvel’s “The Punisher” series from Netflix, Disney has now confirmed that both seasons of “The Punisher” will be coming to Disney+ in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand on Wednesday 16th March 2022.
After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children in the second season of “Daredevil”, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
The show is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.
The series is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal), Jim Chory (Marvel’s Daredevil) and Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Daredevil) who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television.
The cast also features Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Girls, The Lake House), Deborah Ann Woll (Marvel’s Daredevil, True Blood), Ben Barnes (Westworld, The Chronicles of Narnia), Amber Rose Revah (Emerald City, Indian Summers), Michael Nathanson (The Knick, Wolf of Wall Street), Jaime Ray Newman (Bates Motel), Jason R Moore (A Lonely Place for Dying), Daniel Webber (11.22.63) and Paul Schulze (Nurse Jackie).
Since the series is rated 18+, Disney+ subscribers in the US will be releasing an update to its Parental Controls that will prompt all subscribers to update their settings. This won’t apply in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or Canada, since parental controls already are enabled for 18+ content.
“The Punisher” will also be available across all other Disney+ markets later this year.
