After The Punisher made a critically acclaimed debut in season two of Daredevil, Marvel and Netflix quickly announced that Frank Castle would be receiving his own series with Jon Bernthal returning as the anti-hero. However, with filming on the series now complete, a release date for the highly anticipated show has yet to be announced. Now, director Dearbhla Walsh has revealed what month the series will debut on Netflix in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
The Irish filmmaker, who helmed an episode of The Punisher, made the comments when discussing her experiences traveling to the United States to direct:
“One other time [I directed stateside] 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.”
Fans can expect the series to premiere in November if Walsh’s information is accurate. While there has been no official word on a release date from Marvel or Netflix, the series has been expected to debut in late 2017 after The Defenders premieres in August.
The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal, Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Amber Rose Revah, Deborah Ann Woll, Daniel Webber, Jason R. Moore, Paul Schulze, Jaime Ray Newman and Michael Nathanson.

Their separate investigations will bring them together in – what else – a hallway fight.
The culmination of the first phase of the Marvel/Netflix partnership has a lot of ‘splaining to do. What’s the Hand’s true objective? How will our four heroes interact together and how will the supporting casts of their shows intersect here? And perhaps most importantly, who is the Big Bad played by Sigourney Weaver?
