Frank Castle is back and he’s facing off against a “new” villain the upcoming second season of Marvel’s The Punisher.

In the below teaser for the new season, not only is the official premiere date revealed (January 18th), but an all-new look is debuted for Ben Barnes’ character Billy Russo (aka. Jigsaw). The teaser shows Russo intensely battling with his inner demons and transforming into the scar-marred nemesis of Frank Castle. The teaser alternates back and forth between Russo and Castle in preparation for what’s sure to be a dramatic and action-packed showdown in The Punisher‘s season two.

Check out the teaser below.

The Punisher‘s second season will premiere on Netflix this month on January 18th, which should come as a relief to fans of the series given the recent string of canceled Marvel shows on the platform. Recently, the Netflix announced the cancellation of three Marvel series; Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil. Though the series have been canceled, for now, both Netflix and Marvel have teased the possibility of those show’s characters living on in the future. Daredevil, a fan favorite and one of Netflix’s top shows, was perhaps the most surprising of the announcements. Marvel’s The Punisher will live to see another season along with the upcoming new season of Jessica Jones.

The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Jason R Moore, Daniel Webber, and Paul Schulze. The series synopsis reads as follows:

[row]”After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.”[/row]

Clear your calendars for January 18th, because that’s when The Punisher season two binging begins!
