The future of Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock might be up in the air following Netflix’s cancellation of Daredevil, but we now have confirmation that will be seeing more of Karen Page, with Deborah Ann Woll set to reprise her role in season two of The Punisher.
“We were shooting while Daredevil was shooting [its third season],” showrunner Steve Lightfoot Deborah has a huge part in that season,” Lightfood told Screen Rant when asked if Karen Page will reunite with Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle in the new season. “Deborah was very busy, and I didn’t know when I could get her into the show this time around. In the world of the show, that relationship [between Frank and Karen] continues to be very important.”
Based on Lightfoot’s comments, it doesn’t sound like Karen will play too significant a role in the new season of The Punisher, which – based on Netflix’s recent Marvel track record – will likely be its last, on the streaming service at least.
The second season of The Punisher will see Jon Bernthal returning as Frank Castle alongside Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle, Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim, Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont, Giogia Whigham as Amy Bendix, Annette O’Toole as Eliza Schultz, and Corbin Bernsen as Anderson Schultz.
