Recent casting news for 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 the Big Apple.

As we've already learned, Giorgia Whigham is playing Amy Bendix, a character whose history with Frank Castle 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. He's later nursed back to health in Pennsylvania by Amy but it turns out that her father is the town's sheriff and he calls in The Punisher's whereabouts to 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.
Nothing is confirmed as of right now but this certainly seems to the route The Punisher is heading down. With any luck, we'll find out more soon so be sure to let us know your thoughts down below.

Hope frank is more proactive this time. Also hope he spends more time fighting criminals than corrupt gov officials.

@ThePhantazm - Couldn't agree more. I've seen enough of Frank fighting "The Man". Its time to see him take on the mob or other horrible criminals.

I do think it'll be cool to see the dynamic between Frank and cops though. And how some of them acttually like the idea of The Punisher out there doing what they can't.

I have no problem with the idea of this story, a consortium of criminals and gangs going after Frank, but it needs to be later on when his reputation as the Punisher has been established. Right now he's not really someone they should be afraid of. Yeah, sure people would have heard about what he did earlier, but they'd consider him nothing more than a nutjob out for revenge. The mob doesn't really have any reason to go after him now.

Ideally season two should be about Frank going after organised crime, such as the Gnucci family or the Slavers. Then they can do the Suicide Run storyline in season three when he's been set up as the big bad Punisher.

Never read suicide run. Slavers is great. They can adapt any punisher story and I'll be happy as long as Bernthal is in the role.

I never read these stories but if they can incorporate elements from them into the new Season then cool.
