Amazon’s fantasy series Carnival Row turned out to be one of Prime Video’s underrated gems. The steampunk TV show has eight episodes and is based on a dark Victorian-style dystopian world. It introduces us to species division and war, but the ending shows that the story is far from over. Thankfully, Carnival Row has been renewed for a second season! Here are all the things you need to know about it when released on Amazon Prime Video.
Carnival Row Season 2 production update: Is filming for the new episodes over?
Carnival Row Season 2 is a show that people are expecting to come out soon. But the show has faced setbacks because of COVID-19. Production started in November 2019, but it was halted in March 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, when the production crew resumed filming in May, Amazon had not announced a release date yet. Later, the show was three weeks away from finishing and would be filmed in the Czech Republic. Orlando Bloom could not make it for the birth of his first child, so he came back to film scenes. Filming ended quickly, but post-production took longer.
The actors for Imogen Spurnrose on the show told Entertainment Weekly that only five out of eight episodes were finished.
Carnival Row Season 2 release date: When will new episodes come out on Amazon Prime?
Amazon Prime Video has not announced the release date of Carnival Row Season 2. The first season took a long time to come out on the streaming service after filming was finished, so if Season 2 follows the same pace, we can expect it to come out in early 2022.

Carnival Row Season 2 cast: Who’s expected to return, and who are the newcomers?
In the second season of Carnival Row, most of the main cast members from Season 1 are coming back. Here is a list of who will be coming back:
Orlando Bloom as Rycroft Philostrate
Cara Delevingne as Vignette Stonemoss
Simon McBurney as Runyon Millworthy
David Gyasi as Agreus Astrayon
Tamzin Merchant as Imogen Spurnrose

Carnival Row Season 2 plot: What can we expect?
Amazon Prime Video has not released the synopsis for Carnival Row Season 2. But based on the ending of Season 1, it is likely that we will find out more about segregation. In the last episode of Season 1, the government ordered a plan to divide magical creatures from regular people. Knowing that Vignette would be separated from him, Philo confronted his own half-creature status and decided to join her in the ghetto.
At the end of Season 1, Agreus and Imogen sailed away to a safer place. But they refused to go back when the authorities ordered them to return. Season 2 will likely show Agreus and Imogen taking on an adventurous path. Hopefully, the plot of this show will eventually merge with Philo and Vignettes.
