‘The Punisher’ season 2 will bring ‘Suicide Run’ and ‘The Slavers’ stories to life, Josh Stewart, Floriana Lima join cast

The casting for The Punisher season 2 gives fans a ton of insight on the new episodes, adapting another famous comic book storyline in the form of “Suicide Run.”

The Punisher‘s second season teased the possibility that we’ll see an adaptation of Garth Ennis’ “The Slavers” storyline but some fresh information may point to more than just one comic book arc being brought to the small screen.
That’s because a new report reveals that the series is currently looking for small-town cops, leading to theories that it’s borrowing elements from “Suicide Run.” If that’s the case, we can expect the action to move away from New York.
Giorgia Whigham is playing Amy Bendix, a character whose history with Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) began in “Suicide Run” after the vigilante bombed a skyscraper full of some of New York’s worst criminals but ended up in the rubble himself.
Frank later nursed back to health in Pennsylvania by Amy, but it turns out that her father is the town’s sheriff who later calls the FBI. However, his actions result in criminals heading flooding the town in pursuit of Frank.

These casting details reveal that this small-town police squad will be based in Ohio but it’s still possible that “Suicide Run” is going to factor into The Punisher somehow as we move into season two.

  • [Sheriff Bonnen] an authoritative male in his early 40s.
  • [Deputy Willis] a female, 33-37, who is a good cop but looks out for #1 above all else.
  • [Deputy Creamer] a 25-28 year old male who is described as optimistic and professional.
  • [Bob] a male in his early 50s who works at the desk at the sheriff office.

From Marvel:

Josh Stewart 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 Lima will play the role of “Krista Dumont,” a smart, compassionate, and driven psychotherapist for military veterans.

“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 Bernthal, Ben Barnes as Billy Russo aka Jigsaw, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani and Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle.
