Well it looks like that deleted tweet from Netflix’s official Middle East and North Africa twitter account was correct! The streaming service has released a brand new teaser trailer officially revealing and confirming the premier date of the show, as well as some new stills featuring Ben Barnes as villain Jigsaw and John Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher.
This time round it seems that Castle’s actions at the end of the first season will come back to haunt him. Season two finds Frank in all too familiar territory. With Castle’s former brother-in-arms Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) slowly beginning to heal from the traumatic brain injury Frank inflicted on him, it’s only a matter of time before Billy starts to put the pieces of the puzzle back together.
Check out the trailer announcement and first look stills below!
And here’s the synopsis: Former marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace a life as The Punisher.
Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal) serves as showrunner, writer and executive producer. The cast also features Ben Barnes (Billy Russo), Amber Rose Revah (Dinah Madani), Jason R. Moore (Curtis Hoyle), Josh Stewart (John Pilgrim), and Floriana Lima (Dr. Krista Dumont).
Marvel’s The Punisher will debut worldwide on Friday 18th January.
