The cast-list for the upcoming second season of Marvel and Netflix's The Punsiher just got a whole lot starrier.

According to Deadline, Corbin Bernsen (American Gods, Psych) and Annette O’Toole (Cat People, Smallville) have joined the production as a couple that don't appear to be based on any established Marvel Comics characters.

Bernsen will play Anderson Schultz, "an extremely wealthy man who’s grown accustomed to getting his way. His power and legacy are of prime importance, and he’ll implement less-than-legal means to further those ends. Meanwhile, O’Toole will step into the role of his wife Eliza, who is described as being "equally manipulative."

There's no word on how these two will factor into the plot, but they certainly don't seem like the type of people Frank Castle will be taking afternoon tea with!

Jon Bernthal returns to action as The Punisher on December 12.

Best Martha Kent ever in my book.

@Nightwing1015 - Agreed. Smallville also gave us the best Lois Lane, and Lex Luthor!
Nightwing1015 - 5/10/2018, 10:02 AM
@giannis - Yep. And a strong case could be made for the best Clark Kent. But I suppose Reeve will never be topped in the minds of many.

Can't wait for season 2 of The Punisher!

Marvel Netflix's version of Bat Punisher and Martha.

@BlackBeltJones - i get chills everytime he thanks her for raising CK
GhostDog - 5/10/2018, 11:08 AM
@Krav - same here. It was such a great line.
theFUZZ008 - 5/10/2018, 11:29 AM
@Krav - Phenomenal moment.

When was it confirmed that season 2 would be released December 12?

@ATrueHero1987 - It was confirmed that season 2 would be happening on December 12th, 2017, so unless I missed something this is probably just some sloppy research
NinnesMBC - 5/10/2018, 10:44 AM
@nibs - Yes but like where did that info come from? Did the showrunner confirmed it? Jeph Loeb did? Jon Berthal or Ben Barnes? This is really out from the field.
SpideyPuffsMJ - 5/10/2018, 10:46 AM
@NinnesMBC - It may have been the usual Netflix ad showing a 2 and then the superhero show logo associated with the announcement. I think I remember seeing it for this.
NinnesMBC - 5/10/2018, 10:50 AM
@SpideyPuffsMJ - Hmm it is still weird. I remember that but it just meant that they were making official that there would be a sequel Season, not one with a premiere date and everything.
Cyclone1993 - 5/10/2018, 11:08 AM
@nibs - A date hasn’t been confirmed. Besides DD 3, and IF 2 will both be airing before this.

@Cyclone1993 @NinnesMBC @SpideyPuffsMJ

Sorry, my wording isn't perfect and you guys are skimming. December 12th, 2017 (last year), is the day that Netflix made the announcement that season 2 was green lit.
My guess is that Ror just did some sloppy researching here.

Interesting additions. Now the cast counts with two actressess that have been in House of El-esque proyects. (Smallville and Supergirl)

Hopefully Annette O’Toole won’t die by Punisher’s hands.

I hope we will see more comic book villains in Marvel's Netflix Shows, we didn't saw enough villains but got a lot of filler episodes
theFUZZ008 - 5/10/2018, 11:35 AM
Best Martha

Also, Best Lois FTW

[racial slur] we don't even have a release date for Daredevil season 3, yet we have castings and release dates and shit for season 2 of Punisher?

Where is my Matt Murdock?

fundamentallyOT - 5/10/2018, 11:42 AM
And her character will say: "why is he doing that? why does he hate us? why is the Punisher so mean?"

Looking forward to watching the Punisher S2! Hope it keeps the writing on point. JJ S2 was kinda disappointing.
