Marvel’s The Punisher is adding some new faces for its second season on Netflix.
It was announced earlier this week that Josh Stewart (Shooter), Floriana Lima (Supergirl) and Giorgia Whigham (Scream) will be joining as series regulars.
According to Deadline, Stewart will play John Pilgrim, “a man whose calm exterior belies a ruthless interior.” Though he has left his once violence-filled life in the past, new circumstances will force him to call upon his old skillset after being introduced to Frank Castle’s world. Lima will portray Krista Dumont, “a smart, compassionate and driven psychotherapist for military veterans,” and Whigham will play Amy Bendix, “a street-smart grifter with a mysterious past.”
Head of Marvel Television and executive producer for The Punisher Jeph Loeb said in a statement:
“Josh, Floriana and Giorgia are all remarkable talents and we can’t wait for the audience to see what we have in store for them in the second season of Marvel’s The Punisher.”
Steve Lightfoot executive producer/showrunner for the series added:
“We are incredibly excited to have Josh, Floriana and Giorgia joining the cast of Marvel’s The Punisher and seeing them bring their talents to the next chapter in the Frank Castle story.”
We can’t wait to see more of Frank Castle’s story. The Punisher was released on Netflix in November of last year. The series received mixed reviews from critics but, on the whole, fans Jon Bernthal’s portrayal.
