Jon Bernthal’s turn as The Punisher in season two of Netflix’s Daredevil was incredibly well received, so no one was surprised when a solo series starring the vigilante was green lit. Filming wrapped on the series back in April, and fans have been waiting patiently to find out when we’d get to see the final product.
While Netflix hasn’t said anything official yet, a rough window for that release date may have now slipped. Dearbhla Walsh, who directed an episode of the upcoming season, was talking with The Hollywood Reporter when she offhandedly said (on a question about shooting in North America):
One other time that hasn’t been aired yet, which was an episode for the new Marvel series The Punisher, which I did just before Christmas, but it’s not airing until November
Now this is far from official, but it would fall in line with Netflix’s previous releases of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. It’s also entirely possible that Walsh is repeating information given to her back when she was filming, which means it may very well have changed since then. Still, it’s a good sign for the series that fans are looking for even the vaguest indication of when the show is finally going to get here.
You know, whenever it finally does.
