The series is currently scheduled to commence shooting this month in New York.
Jon Bernthal originally played the character during the Marvel/Netflix era, debuting on the second season of Daredevil, before getting his own spinoff series The Punisher, which ran for two seasons. In the same report from THR, it states that two original, pivotal supporting characters in the original Daredevil series are not on the roll call for this new series, and they are Foggy Nelson and Karen Page, portrayed by Elden Henson and Deborah Ann Woll respectively.
