THE PUNISHER Showrunner Reveals Which Villains He Hopes To Bring To Season 2 And They Sound Awesome

The first season of The Punisher has been well-received by fans and critics alike but which bad guys should we expect to see Frank Castle target if and when a second batch of episodes is released?

The Punisher only hit Netflix a few days ago but showrunner Steve Lightfoot already has some ideas for where he'd like to take the story next. The first season focused more on a big government conspiracy than Frank Castle gunning down mobsters but it thankfully sounds like a second season would revolve more about the type of villains the vigilante has squared off with in the comic books over the years.

In fact, Lightfoot has some specific names in mind for which characters he hopes to bring to the big screen and his suggestions will almost certainly make fans of Garth Ennis' work very happy indeed. 


"I haven’t even thought about Season 2," he claimed before adding, "but one of the villains I love is Barracuda [from Garth Ennis’ Punisher MAX series]. "I think he’s great fun. I also really like O’Brien [also introduced in Ennis’ Punisher MAX run]. I thought she was always really cool. Certainly those two jump out at me initially, but there are so many great characters there. It’s a very fun sandbox."

The Punisher featured a lot of newly created characters so bringing these two into the show would be awesome. Barracuda is a former Marine who was hired to assassinate Frank, while Kathryn O'Brien was a former CIA operative who teamed up with the vigilante to take down her corrupt ex-husband.

What do you hope to see from season two if and when it happens? Share your thoughts down below.
