On Wednesday, Netflix released a look at their upcoming programming for January 2019, and while their list contains several awesome titles, there was one major surprise which has subscribers really excited.

The below video shows a preview of what new titles will be coming to the streaming service platform on a day-by-day basis in January. At the very, very end of the video, however, The Punisher‘s Frank Castle is seen in a brief clip preparing for action.

Check out the video below.

One year ago, the series announced that it would be returning for a second season. With the recent happenings between Netflix and Marvel, fans feared that the series might fall subject to another surprise cancellation.

Recently, the streaming service announced the cancellation of three Marvel series from their platform. Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil have all gotten the ax within the past few months, though 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. For now, however, it appears that The Punisher is safe, at least for the upcoming second season.

Marvel’s 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]

While an exact premiere date has not yet been announced, fans of the series can rest assured knowing the wait for Frank Castle’s return is almost over.
