The first season of Marvel’s The Punisher garnered rave reviews. The reviews were so strong and positive that it was renewed for a second season close to a week after its initial release on Netflix.
Now as the story of former Marine turned vigilante, Frank Castle heads into its sophomore season, more talent is being added to the cast. The show stars Jon Bernthal and includes Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, and Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle returning from season 1. Jo
Being added to the cast as series regulars are Shooter actor Josh Stewart will play 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.” Meanwhile, Supergirl‘s Floriana Lima will portray Krista Dumont, “a smart, compassionate, and driven psychotherapist for military veterans.” (that explains why her and Danvers broke up in Supergirl….that and kids) Last but not least, Giorgia Whigham (Scream) will play Amy Bendix, “a street-smart grifter with a mysterious past.”
As of now, Bendix is the only established Marvel Comics character of the three, and a very minor one at that. It seems that this version of Bendix will be relatively different from the comics. .
Frank Castle will officially continue to exact his brand of revenge and justice as Netflix has officially renewed Marvel’s The Punisher for a second season.
This doesn’t honestly come as a shock to many as the praise and strong reviews from its November 17th debut. Even the Trusty Sidekicks review of the series HERE
Jon Bernthal first arrived as the grief stricken, war-torn vigilante in Daredevil season 2 and the desire for his own series. This debuted with a bang, no pun intended now it’s going to be great to see where season 2 takes Frank, Micro (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), Karen Page(Deborah Ann Woll), Agent Madani(Amber Rose-Revah) and also how does Billy Russo(Ben Barnes) develop into the bad guy “Jigsaw”.Let us know if you’re just as excited for this announcement.

Well this year is getting a lot more exciting and the release of poster helps out A LOT.
The official poster for the upcoming Netflix series “The Punisher” starring Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle been released and it changes what many of us thought. We were under the impression that at first it would be released next year in 2018 but this poster shows that it is coming in 2017.
Now this would change the landscape because we just found out the release date for Marvel’s The Defenders which is set to come out this year in August. Now the question is do we get it close to the end of the year or immediately after the Defenders.
