Filming: Montaque Street and Hicks Street

After Season 1 of this Amazon Prime TV series won Golden Globes for Best Comedy Series and Best Actress in a Comedy, it was a no-brainer to renew for Season 2, currently filming. Both seasons are primarily filmed in New York, but made to look like 1958, when the show takes place.

After Gotham City was evacuated at the end of last season, it will be interesting to see where the show goes from here. The fifth and final season of the superhero centred show is coming in early 2019 and you can see locations from the show on our Super Tour of NYC.


Law & Order: SVU

Starring: Mariska Hargitay

Upcoming Season 12 of SVU will allow it to be tied with Gunsmoke for the longest running drama in the U.S., and we can’t wait for Olivia Benson to solve more cases in NYC.
