Carnival Row Season 2 Release Date:
Carnival Row was renewed for a second season before the airing of its first season. Though the second season was scheduled to air during the summer of 2020, production took a set back with the Covid-19 pandemic.
The crew, however, were happy to inform that the show had completed most of its production with only two weeks of shooting left on the agenda. With generous efforts from the Czech Republic and their government, Carnival Row has come out to be one of the very first shows to wrap up production amidst the coronavirus outbreak.
The second season is expected to air on Amazon Prime towards the end of 2020 or early 2021, with only post-production left on the table.
Carnival Row Season 2 Plot, Cast:
Not much has been revealed about the plot of the second season. The season will mostly follow Philo (Orlando Bloom) and his conflicts regarding his identity, while stories of love, redemption, and war continue to blossom in this Victorian period piece drama.
More characters are expected to join the show, and with a wider, more inclusive cast Carnival Row Season 2 is going to be a fascinating journey through magical times.
