The Punisher has been seen as a diamond in the rough when it has come to recent Netflix/Marvel shows.
The series, starring Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, was a bit refreshing after recent offerings of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist were found to be lacking. Now, with season two on the horizon, The Punisher has added a few more cast members to its stable.
Deadline has reported that American Gods’ Corbin Bernsen and Smallville’s Annette O’Toole will join the second season of the series. Bernsen will play Anderson Schultz, an extremely wealthy man who always gets his way, while O’Toole will play his wife, Eliza, who is just as ruthless as her husband.
From the sound of these character descriptions, it sounds like Bernsen and O’Toole’s characters will be two of many targets on Castle’s hit list this coming season. Whether they will be the main antagonists of this season is currently unknown.
Here’s hoping The Punisher’s second season doesn’t suffer the same sophomore slump that its sibling, Daredevil, went through.
The second season of The Punisher currently has no premiere date.
