MORE INFO ABOUT “THE PUNISHER” SEASON 2
SEASON TWO INTRODUCES 3 NEW CHARACTERS AND POTENTIAL PLOT
Despite Disney trying to create its own streaming service, they still have a deal in place with Netflix to at least wrap up the shows they started on the service. One of these shows is The Punisher, which looks ready to start production.
Jon Bernthal will return as Frank Castle/Punisher but will be joined by three new actors: Josh Stewart, Floriana Lima and Giorgia Whigham.
Josh Stewart will be playing John Pilgrim.
Josh Stewart’s role in season two will be that of John Pilgrim who seems to be a retired assassin. His described as someone who due to certain circumstances “will force him to use his old skills and bring him into Frank Castle’s world”.
Floriana Lima is Krista Dumont.
The hero story cliche is that there’s always a doctor dealing with mental health. Lima plays Krista Dumont, a psychotherapist specializing in soldiers who have seen the trauma of war.
Similar to her “Shameless” character, Giorgina Whigham will be a street drifter type of character.
Lastly, Giorgina Whigham will be Amy Bendix, a woman who knows her way around the street and neighborhood.
The speculation behind these characters being introduced is that The Punisher will face off against the “Slavers”, people who run an underground prostitution ring in New York City. My guess is The Punisher will run into Whigham’s character while searching for the slavers and Stewart’s character may be hired to deal with The Punisher. Lima’s role as a psychotherapist could actually go in either direction as she either helps former victims or is being used by the slavers to keep the prostitutes healthy enough to be of use.
