‘Punisher’ Netflix Series Sets Premiere Date

The Marvel-Netflix “Punisher” series has set a premiere date, Netflix announced Thursday.

The show will premiere on Nov. 17. It was rumored that Marvel was going to reveal the premiere date during the show’s New York Comic-Con panel earlier this month, but the panel was cancelled in the wake of the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas that left over 50 people dead.

A spin-off from Season 2 of “Daredevil,” “The Punisher” tells the story of Frank Castle, a combat veteran whose family is killed in a organized-crime shootout. Castle uses his military skills to kill the criminals responsible for his family’s death. The series is based on the Marvel Comics character, whose adventures are known to feature an intense amount of gun violence.

Netflix also released a new trailer for the series, which can be viewed above.

Jon Bernthal stars as Castle. The cast also features Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Jason R. Moore, Daniel Webber, and Paul Schulze.

The series is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot, Jim Chory  and Jeph Loeb, who also serves as Marvel’s head of television. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
