Now Playing: The Punisher Season 2 - Official Trailer

The second season of the Marvel show The Punisher hits Netflix on January 18, and we can finally see some footage from the show. A full trailer for Season 2 has been released, and it looks every bit as dark, action-packed, and violent as Season 1.

The trailer reveals that the new season will focus on a teenage girl named Amy (Giorgia Whigham), who is in serious trouble with some very bad people. Inevitably Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) deals with the situation in the only way he knows how--killing people in a variety of gruesome ways--and the trailer also features the return of villainous Billy Russo (aka Jigsaw, played by Ben Barnes). Check it out above.

While there is much anticipation for The Punisher Season 2, the future of the show is unclear. In recent months, three of Netflix's roster of Marvel shows have been cancelled. While the axing of Iron Fist and Luke Cage weren't necessarily surprising, the cancelation of Daredevil within a few weeks of the acclaimed Season 3 hitting the service suggested that Netflix is looking to drop all of its Marvel shows.

Disney is launching its own streaming platform, named Disney+, later this year and is developing several Marvel series for it. Netflix still officially has The Punisher and Jessica Jones as active shows, and Season 3 of the latter is expected later this year. However, it remains possible that both will be cancelled once these latest seasons have been released.

In terms of new Marvel shows, in November Disney confirmed that Tom Hiddleston will star in a Loki show for Disney+. In addition, it has been reported that a Falcon and Winter Soldier team-up series is in development, as well as a Scarlet Witch show.

it might be a good thing to cancel all those shows, if they do go out on a high note like daredevil. no one can say "oh man remember that daredevil show on netflix and how much it sucked towards the end?". just exchange "daredevil" and "netflix" with some of the most famous tv shows and you know i'm right (example: try the words "lost" and "abc").

Thomas Jane has spoiled the punisher for me, and I just cant accept Bernthal's character. If someone needed to play a dumb-dumbs grunt for a role, he should get it--well I guess he already did.

@Devils-DIVISION: It was a shame that Thomas Jane was lumped into the role with a mediocre script. I did enjoy the movie regardless and I thought he did a good job in it. I don't blame him for bailing out of the sequel (War Zone). I saw the second one and thought it was pretty bad.

Hope so. Season 1 was so boring.

@Barighm: serious.. there is a scene where Punisher sits down to have a glass of wine with Micros life.
