Netflix orders “Punisher” series; John Krasinski to Jack Ryan and more TV News

The Punisher Banner

It’s been a busy few days in the TV industry. First, Netflix has reported that they are ordering a Punisher series, which will star Jon Bernthal. The Punisher was introduced in the most recent season of Daredevil. This is another win for Netflix, who currently has another few Marvel series to launch in the next few years.

Other news from Netflix comes in the form of a second season renewal of The Ranch, starring Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson. The first season consists of 20 episodes, with the first batch debuting this month, with the second batch to hit later this year. The second season will follow this unique to Netflix approach.

And finally, news from Amazon Prime comes with the announcement that The Office and 13 Hours star John Krasinski will play the lead Jack Ryan in an upcoming series based on the Tom Clancy novels. Like the most recent movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, the series won’t be based on a particular book in the series, but will instead have a new contemporary take on the series.
