With Season 2 of The Punisher being greenlit, it is currently in its pre-production stage. Although it is not clear when shooting will begin, it is now confirmed that the production is expected to remain in New York City. In addition, the show will keep its production title of Crime. Based on the shooting location, it is evident that the setting of the show will also remain in the New York area.
This is notable because both the recent comics and previous film incarnations of the character take place outside of New York. Newer comics feature the character in California while the 2004 film featuring Thomas Jane is set in Florida. Therefore, by maintaining the location used in the previous season, the show can further establish its own identity.
While no production dates have been confirmed, it is likely that the show will begin shooting in the next few months. Also, no release date has been confirmed as of yet. In both cases, it is now a matter of time before dates are set in stone.
