New characters will be entering Frank Castle’s story, as a trio of actors have been announced for season 2 of Marvel and Netflix’s The Punisher, including Josh Stewart (Criminal Minds), Florian Lima (Supergirl) and Giorgia Whigham (13 Reasons Why).
Josh has been cast as John Pilgrim, 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.
Floriana will play the role of Krista Dumont, a smart, compassionate, and driven psychotherapist for military veterans.
Giorgia has been locked to play Amy Bendix, a street-smart drifter 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,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television.
“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 Steve Lightfoot, Showrunner and Executive Producer.
Stewart, Lima, and Whigham will join returning cast members Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, and Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle.
The Punisher is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
