Punisher is getting his own solo series at Netflix as the streaming service ordered a first season of Marvel's The Punisher today.

Jon Bernthal's portrayal of Frank Castle, The Punisher, stole the show in season two ofDaredevil. Revealed by Marvel, Steve Lightfoot will serve as Executive Producer and Showrunner for the new series, while writing the first two episodes.

“For me, the complexity and unpredictability of Frank Castle make him an incredibly compelling character and I couldn’t be more excited to dive into his world,” said Lightfoot. “After watching Jon’s performance in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ I could not be more excited to be working with him to further develop and progress the story of this anti-hero in a show of his own.”

Rumors have come and gone saying that Netflix and Marvel would be teaming up on this series. The fan response from this past season exceeded Marvel's expectations.

“We want to thank the fans who are clamoring for more of Jon’s stunning and powerful performance as Frank Castle from ‘Marvel’s Daredevil,'” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, “Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot’s compelling writing, we’re thrilled to bring 'Marvel’s The Punisher' to Netflix.”

This is the sixth series Netflix has ordered from Marvel so far, including the upcoming Luke Cage, Iron First, and The Defenders. There's no news yet as to when this show will air, but look for it after The Defenders. We'll keep you updated as more develops.

It's good to hear that the Punisher is getting his own series. I like to see Frank facing Jigsaw in the first season.
