It feels strange to know that we're likely never going to see Jon Bernthal don the iconic skull-emblazoned vest again, with The Punisher just one of the slew of Marvel-driven Netflix shows that have now been cancelled.
Despite existing within the backdrop of the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe, Bernthal's Frank Castle joins Charlie Cox's Daredevil, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Mike Colter's Luke Cage, and Finn Jones' Iron Fist in being put out to pasture - well, unless these incarnations of the characters somehow end up being resurrected on the impending Disney+ streaming service or even possibly in the big-screen MCU.
For now though, Frank won't be cracking skulls for the foreseeable future.
Throughout two seasons - not to mention some appearances elsewhere in this shared realm - audiences got to see a whole lot of chaos and carnage as Castle ploughed his way through bad guy after bad guy, with little to no remorse ever really shown. But that's Frank Castle's M.O. - you do some messed-up sh*t, he'll shoot you in the face.
It's a simple, albeit bloody, formula.
Let's see just how well you remember the bloodstained antics of Bernthal's Punisher, then, as we've got a quiz lined up here that not even the most avid fan of The Punisher will be able to get 100% on.
