Netflix's Punisher has hired Floriana Lima, Josh Stewart, and Giorgia Whigham as regulars ahead of its second season, according to Deadline.

Genre fans will remember Lima as she played Maggie Sawyer in the CW's Supergirl recently. In Punisher, Lima will play Krista Dumont - "a smart, compassionate, and driven psychotherapist for military veterans."

Josh Stewart was cast as John Pilgrim, whom Deadline describes as "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."

Lastly, Giorgia Whigham is playing Amy Bendix, a Punisher: War Zone character described as "a street-smart grifter 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 Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb.

"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 Punisher showrunner Steve Lightfoot.

No debut date for Punisher's second season has been announced.
