The cast for Netflix’s The Punisher has just gotten a little bit bigger with three new additions set to make their debut during the show’s second season, Deadline reports.
Netflix’s The Punisher has recently recruited Floriana Lima, Josh Stewart, and Giorgia Whigham. Avid fans of superhero television will not be strangers towards Adriana Lima, who recently starred in The CW’s Supergirl as police detective Maggie Sawyer. In The Punisher, Lima will play Krista Dumont who has been described as a “smart, compassionate, and driven psychotherapist for military veterans.”
Josh Stewart was cast as John Pilgrim, whom Deadline has stated is “a man whose calm exterior belies a ruthless interior. Despite having left behind a life of violence, circumstances will force him to use his old skills and bring him into Frank Castle’s world.
Additionally, Giorgia Whigham is portraying Amy Bendix, a character people may remember from Lexi Alexander’s The Punisher: War Zone. The character has been described as “a street-smart grifter with a mysterious past.”
“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,” stated Marvel Television Executive Vice President Jeph Loeb.
“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,” added showrunner Steve Lightfoot.
Currently, there is no release date for season two of Netflix’s The Punisher. Season one of The Punisher is now currently streaming on Netflix.
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.
