The multiverse has arrived in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to Loki, which opens up all kinds of possibilities, including the return of Frank Castle, and many people are wondering if there will be a The Punisher season 3 happening somewhere down the line.
Many fans have been wondering whats the future holds for the Netflix-Marvel characters, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Fiege has clearly stated that Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and the rest of the characters from those shows are all in consideration to possibly make comebacks in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This has to lead to anticipation gaining traction for not only a new season but also for Castle to triumphantly make his way back in the mix.
There has been an abundant amount of speculating as to where and when Frank Castle could come back. Some of these options include Spider-Man: No Way Home, Armor Wars, Deadpool 3, and the She-Hulk Disney+ series. A rumor from Geekosity that has yet to be confirmed and should be taken with a grain of salt at this point is that The Punisher with Bentrhal in the lead role is set to be the first of many R-Rated Marvel properties headed for Disney’s other streamings service, Hulu.
In order to make sure Marvel fans and Netflix subscribers have all the latest intel on the matter, here is everything everyone needs to know about the season 3 release date and more.
How many seasons of The Punisher are there?
There are two seasons of the Marvel series The Punisher on Netflix now. Each exciting season consisted of 13 episodes that each ran about 49-58 minutes in length.
Is there going to be a season 3 of The Punishment?
Right now, there is no official news regarding whether or not The Punisher season 3 is going to happen. Netflix canceled the series on February 19, 2021.
But as mention earlier, Kevin Fiege, ruler of all things involved in the MCU and the “He Who Remains” of the popular cinematic universe, has previously stated that there is a chance these characters could return. There have been rumors swirling regarding the comeback of The Punisher, and it will be interesting to see if the third season ends up on Netflix, Disney+, or Hulu.
How many episodes of The Punisher season 3 are there?
There has been no official episode count released for The Punisher season 3, and it’s anyone’s guess how many entries it will have. If it’s on Netflix, fans could expect to see 13 entries like before.
If it ends up on Hulu, eight to ten episodes would be a fair guess. If, for whatever reason, the next chapter ends up on Disney+ like Loki, it may just have six installments.
Either way, fans want more of The Punisher, so they will undoubtedly take whatever they can get, sooner rather than later.
When is The Punisher season 3 filming?
It has been rumored the series could very well return, but since nothing official has been announced, it’s very difficult to determine when the show will start shooting. If The Punisher season 3 is to happen, it will most likely start shooting after it’s made clear the character is getting another run or at least until he has made an appearance indicating the antihero does, in fact, have a future with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Punisher season 3 release date predictions
Once it’s known that The Punisher is officially back in the mix and that a third season is actually on the agenda, only then will a release date come forward. Until then, it’s hard to speculate as the character was not one of the many exciting names mentioned for the upcoming MCU phases.
We know it’s coming this year, so it’ll be at least 2022 or 2023 before we see a Punisher series on Hulu or Disney Plus.
