What exactly is happening to The Punisher…? It’s a question I’ve been asking myself ever since the show was cancelled by Netflix. However, there are reports that The Punisher Season 3 might end up airing on Hulu rather than Netflix.
It had been reported that The Punisher might be coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and that Jon Bernthal would be returning to play the role.
However, I’m not hearing reports that Marvel might actually end up giving the greenlight to The Punisher Season 3 and drop it on Hulu.
This rumour comes courtesy of We Got This Covered, which means you should take it with a pinch of salt, however, it would make sense because The Punisher is a genuinely great TV show.
The fact that Marvel Studios is looking for a way to bring Jon Bernthal into the MCU also means that they might want to expand his character, and another season of the show would allow them to do that.
The Punisher Season 3 might air on Hulu
The fact that they’d have it land on Hulu rather than Disney Plus also makes sense because Disney now owns the streaming service and it looks like they’re going to use it for their more adult shows and movies.
I actually do hope they end up doing this because The Punisher deserves another season, and if they can’t bring him in the MCU straight away, it would be a nice way to have Bernthal play the character yet again.
That said, these are rumours at the moment, so it might not happen at all, which I would find extremely disheartening.
