Frank Castle will seek vengeance on Netflix in November.

Netflix has finally announced the premiere date for Marvel's The Punisher, along with debuting a new trailer. The series stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, reprising the role he originated on Daredevil, and is set to hit the streaming platform on November 17 -- the same day that Warner Bros. and DC will be releasing Justice League in theaters.

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon 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.

Check out the new trailer below!

"We want to thank the fans who are clamoring for more of Jon's stunning and powerful performance as Frank Castle from ‘Marvel’s Daredevil," said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb, "Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot's compelling writing, we're thrilled to bring Marvel's The Punisher to Netflix."

The Punisher is now the sixth Marvel series set to debut on Netflix, following Daredevil, the Peabody Award-winning Jessica Jones, Luke CageIron Fist, and the team-up mini-series The Defenders. Executive Producer Steve Lightfoot also serves as showrunner and writer for the series' first two episodes. In addition to Jon Bernthal, the show also features Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ben Barnes, and Jason R. Moore. Likewise, Deborah Ann Woll will star as Karen Paige, reprising her role from Daredevil. Marvel's The Punisher is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix. 

A current Netflix subscription starts at $11 for HD streaming and $14 for Ultra HD streaming.
