Netflix announces 'The Punisher' season 2

Punisher is the sixth Marvel series on Netflix and joins "Daredevil" (renewed for season three), "Iron Fist", "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage" (with the latter trio all picked up for sophomore runs).

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who watched the show because it was arguably the best of the previous five Marvel shows and because of how the show left viewers with that finale that left us begging for more. According to Bernthal, that betrayal is integral to everything in the show's first season. To my knowledge that's only happened with Girlboss and Gypsy.

Check out Marvel's The Punisher Season 2 Announcement on Facebook. But Variety's Sonia Saraiya praised it, writing, "Thanks to Jon Berthal's seamless performance as the non-superpowered vigilante Frank Castle and showrunner Steve Lightfoot's sharp, conscious storytelling, "The Punisher" approaches the high points of "Marvel's Jessica Jones" by introducing a damaged, deadly character and telling his story as one piece of an unjust whole". Heck, in many years. Critical reaction was mixed, with season 1 rating as the second-lowest Marvel Netflix series on both Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic, but fan reception felt stronger than the critics' scores.

How healthy is your state? The disparities are stark
MA ranks as the healthiest state in 2017 for the first time, followed by Hawaii (2), Vermont (3), Utah (4) and CT (5). The state-by-state ranking is aimed at highlighting positive and negative health trends.

The team behind The Punisher announced the renewal in a video today, though they didn't reveal any plans for the upcoming season.

The renewal comes less than a month after the November 17 debut of the Jon Bernthal-led show's 13-episode first season.

When it comes to The Punisher season 2, I expect all of those shows to have new seasons, as well as the new season of Daredevil before the new season of The Punisher, can premiere.
