Marvel… This is not just a name but an emotion, especially for those who have been following its comics, movies, and series ever since the beginning of this separate universe. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has a huge fanbase, and fans are always rooting for whatever Marvel has in store.
In addition to its big movie projects, Marvel has also taken to web series, and the fans have loved them. One such series by Marvel is The Punisher, a sequel to The Daredevil.
The series is a conspiracy thriller revolving around the life of the vigilante Frank Castle, who seeks justice and revenge for the loss of his family and loved ones to mysterious deaths. As his journey unfolds, the viewers can see a lot of violence and guns and the ultimate revelation of Frank Castle as The Punisher. Another exciting thing about the series is the twists and turns that have kept the viewers hooked.
The first season was released back in 2017 and the second one in 2019, and ever since that ended, the fans have been rooting for the Season 3 of the series. The finale episode of Season 2 has left the audience presuming and imagining what’s more to unfold in the life of Frank Castle, after all.
However, as excited and hopeful the fans are for The Punisher Season 3, the recent announcements from Netflix indicate that it’s off the charts after all.
The contract between Netflix and Marvel has come to an end, and while Netflix is happy to run Season 1 and Season 2 of the show for a long time, that’s all the audience will have to be contented with.
Nonetheless, Disney still has the rights to the Marvel series, and it has been attempting to bring all the series by Marvel on a single platform. So, while Netflix has canceled The Punisher Season 3, we can speculate that Disney may release it after all.
Given those details, the fans would love to know what’s in store in the next season, and while nothing is clear, we can speculate something about the plot.
The entire story of Punisher revolves around the justice that Frank Castle seeks for the mysterious deaths of his family. But, as he seeks this justice, he becomes vengeful and turns to violence. So, the audience can he the character talking more with bullets than with words.
The plot involves lots of twists and turns, with more characters coming in and going out of the series while some of the characters remain constant.
The end of Season 2 saw a retaliation movement by Russo, Anderson, and Schultz, and Frank Castle parted his ways with the drifter army to work alone.

Now, as this happened, the audience has high hopes for Season 3, and it’s expected that Season 3 will revolve around Castle fighting the darker forces lurking within New York City. It can be expected that the series shall not be just about Castle’s revenge for his own family and loved ones, but for everyone else in the city who is falling prey to wrongful acts and deeds.
Although, nothing can be said with conformity, as the authors haven’t revealed any details about the plot or storyline. However, this is something we can expect from Season 3 as its story unfolds, if at all it releases.
Punisher Season 3 Release Date
The fans have been eagerly waiting for an announcement of the Punisher Season 3 release date. However, the Netflix announcement of the season being canceled left many fans heartbroken.
It seems as if the fans will have to make themselves contended with the two seasons of the series. However, there is still a new development. Given the fact that the rights of Marvel series are held by Disney, we can still expect a release of The Punisher Season 3 on Disney Plus or Hulu.

The release is much expected in the year 2022. There are no details about the exact date, and we still need to wait for the same. However, it’s only a matter of time before we know everything about the release, so all we need to do is sit tight and wait.
Punisher Season 3: Other Information
The release of Punisher Season 3 seems much in jeopardy, given the termination of the contract between Netflix and Marvel.
Nonetheless, we can expect it to run on Disney Plus or Hulu. However, even if that happens, the number of episodes will seem to be fewer. So far, Netflix has run 13 episodes each for Season 1 and Season 2. However, considering that the show will release on a different platform, we cannot expect that many episodes.
It’s speculated that Disney might release it with six episodes at most. Nonetheless, something is better than having nothing.
It will also be interesting to see the old cast staying put in the series while we shall see some new faces as well. Talking about the cast, the viewers can highly expect to see Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, Amber Rose as Dinah Madani, Josh Stewart as The Pilgrim, etc., mainly the characters who have been recurring in the previous Seasons.
As unpredictable as the release of Punisher Season 3 seems to be, the fans can still keep themselves hopeful. Moreover, Netflix is still running Season 1 and Season 2 of the series, so if you’re really missing it, you can keep yourself busy and content by having a rerun of the show.
Nothing seems to be obvious and confirmed as of the moment, yet we can speculate a release soon. Even if the series isn’t released, there are speculations that the characters will become a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, we can expect the characters to appear in some of the big screen Marvel movies.
What unfolds is only a matter of time, and it’s best that we wait for some good news!
Until then, stay excited, and keep watching and living Marvel!
