Where is The Punisher season 2 set?

A synopsis from Netflix reads: “Former marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham).

“As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace a life as The Punisher.”

Judging from the trailer, The Punisher will feature new settings as Frank is on the road and trying to escape his past.

A lot of scenes appear to be in motel rooms as Frank tries to escape his past, however the hero makes a comeback after Jigsaw (Ben Barnes) rocks up in the city.


The trailer suggests that some of the action will be following Frank on his journey before his return to New York City.

Speaking about where season two finds Frank at the start, The Punisher’s showrunner Steve Lightfoot teased: “Frank had been given a new identity and was told to keep himself out of trouble.

“He has really been trying to do that and he’s kept his head down. I always liked the idea that he’s been driving around seeing the America that he went overseas to protect, but had never actually visited.

“He’s been doing odd jobs here and there and drifting around, partly because he’s still not a guy who’s ever going to put down roots.”

Lightfoot went on to say about the trajectory of the second run: “I pretty much started straight away. I knew that I wanted to mix up who was around Frank.

“I didn’t want season two to be all about his dead wife and him living in the past and so I very quickly came up with the idea of pairing him with a young girl to see what new directions that took him in.”
