The Punisher is one of the most gritty and violent series based on Marvel comics. The Netflix Marvel series is a dark and violent portrayal of a man who has lost everything and is now on the path to revenge in the most brutal way he could get it. The Punisher ran for two seasons on Netflix but after that, it was canceled because Disney decided that they want to take the Netflix Marvel shows on their own streaming service Disney+, which has already announced that they will be making a new season of the fan-favorite series Daredevil starring the original star Charlie Cox but as far as the new season of The Punisher goes its fate is still up in the air.
