Netflix has announced the return of one of its two remaining Marvel series, as The Punisher will return for its second season in January, presumably with a cancellation notice to follow a week later. Though the streaming giant has yet to release an official trailer for Jon Bernthal's second go-around as Frank Castle, you can catch a few seconds of new footage in this Polish Netflix promo, starting at the 1:28 mark.
Netflix has yet to release an official date for the season two premiere, though there are four Fridays to choose from in January: the 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th. Let's go with the 18th, since that's still far enough away to give them time to drop an actual, suitable trailer.
Since cancelling Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Daredevil, Netflix only has The Punisher and Jessica Jones left. These shows will also likely get the axe after their respective second and third seasons premiere, though I would expect Disney to start over fresh with these characters, recast them all, and reboot them as part of the MCU. If they do that, may I suggest Frank Grillo for The Punisher. Dude was born to play that part, just look at him.
I know he played Crossbones already, but that was for five minutes at the beginning of Captain America: Civil War, well before everything people remember about Civil War happened. Who cares, anyway? Get the best man for the job, and if Bernthal's not that man, Grillo has to be.
The Punisher's second and final season airs on Netflix sometime in January. Probably the 18th. Or maybe the 25th. Or the 11th. Probably not the 4th, though.
