‘The Punisher’: Jon Bernthal Speaks About The Show’s Uncertain Future

The Punisher season two is currently streaming on Netflix. As the streaming service hasn’t made any renewal announcement yet, fans are wondering if The Punisher will follow the fate of Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil rather than getting renewed for a third season.

Well, actor Jon Bernthal, who plays Frank Castle in the Punisher, seems quite optimistic about his character’s future. Bernthal made his debut as Frank Castle in 2016 during the second season of Daredevil. After the character became popular among fans, Marvel rolled out a spin-off series in 2017, with its second season steaming currently.

During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Bernthal spoke about the series’ uncertain future. He said he believes his character Frank Castle still has a long way to go.

It’s a character that’s existed for decades, it’s a character that has touched so many people, and it’s a character that’s resonated in the law enforcement and military community,” The Punisher actor said. “It was an absolute honor to play him, and I know that there will be more Frank Castle one way or the other, and no matter what it is, everything that I’ve gotten to do so far, I’m eternally grateful for. I’m honored that I got to wear the vest.”

Bernthal recalled his time playing the fan-favorite character, Frank Castle.

Playing Frank as a supporting character offers you the opportunity to go the farthest with him,” the actor said. “You can truly abandon any sense of likability or reliability and you can just let him be Frank, and I enjoyed that, I thought that was a really good fit. I’m enormously grateful to the Daredevil folks, I loved my time there, and none of this would have happened if it wasn’t for that.”

The Punisher Season 2 also stars Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Giorgia Whigham as Amy Bendix, Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim, and Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont.
