Amazon has extended “Carnival Row” for a second season. However, fans of the fantasy series had to wait over 3 years for tangible news of Carnival Row season 2. Now the start date and the end of the series is fixed.
- The second season of “Carnival Row” was a long time coming due to the Corona pandemic.
- Now it is finally certain: in the spring of 2023 it continues.
- Season 2 will be the finale of the series.
The second season of Amazon Prime Video‘s own production “Carnival Row” was ordered even before the first season was released.
Due to the Corona pandemic, filming was delayed for an extremely long time. These delays probably also ensured that it would end after season 2. Now there is finally a start date and a trailer.
Carnival Row Season 2: Release date
Carnival Row season 2 was ordered even before the release of season 1. Initially, it looked like we would see the new episodes as early as late summer 2020.
The corona pandemic threw a wrench in the shooting. Season 2 of “Carnival Row” will now appear on Amazon Prime Video on February 17, 2023. Also, the final season will not be released in one fell swoop. Every Friday you can expect a double episode, so you can see the finale only on March 17, 2023.
Episodes 1 and 2: February 17, 2023
Episodes 3 and 4: February 24, 2023
Episodes 5 and 6: March 3, 2023
Episodes 7 and 8: March 10, 2023
Episode 9 and 10: March 17, 2023
Carnival Row Season 2: Here’s how the story continues
After the dark secret of Piety (Indira Varma) is revealed and the Dark Asher is defeated, there is still no happy ending for Vignette (Cara Delevingne) and Philo (Orlando Bloom).
The new Chancellor Jonah Breakspear has allied himself with his radical-minded half-sister and lover Sophie Longerbane, and things are worse than ever for the mythological creatures.
The Faeries and the rest of the “Critch” are locked up in Carnival Row. Philo follows his vignette into captivity to avoid being separated from her again. Meanwhile, Imogen and Agreus are on the run and are on the sea route to freedom.
But how does the story continue? In an interview with US magazine Entertainment Weekly, showrunners Travis Beacham and Marc Guggenheim reveal what we can expect in the new season. In season 2, Philo’s identity will be explored in more detail.
As a half-breed, he doesn’t really belong to the humans, but he doesn’t quite belong to the Faeries either. He has to deal with this realization in the new season. Also, while Vignette and Philo have gotten back together, their relationship suffers from various things.
Philo has to find himself, while Vignette finds herself more and more on the other side of a conflict. She knows exactly who she is and is proud of it. This gives much basis for friction in the relationship.
In addition, Philo is the illegitimate son of the late chancellor. He is a thorn in the side of his siblings Sophie Longerbane (Caroline Ford) and Jonah Breakspear (Arty Froushan).
The prophecy that the son of former chancellor Absalom Breakspear (Jared Harris) will become an even greater man than his father further goads the two.
Imogen and Agreus were able to escape the Burgue. According to Beacham, they also wanted to show the world outside the Burgue and the lovers travel to a place that was already mentioned in season 1.
Which place that is, the showrunner doesn’t reveal, but in season 2 we will expect two other countries besides the Burgue and two other places. In addition, we will see more about the political situation of Burgue and the underground movement of the Faes, the Black Raven. Also, other extremist groups will be examined in more detail.
Carnival Row Season 2: Trailer
So far, there is only a short teaser that shows Philo and Vignette floating high in the air. Until Philo is suddenly dropped by Vignette.
Carnival Row Season 2: Cast
In addition to Cara Delevingne (Vignette Stonemoss) and Orlando Bloom (Rycroft “Philo” Philostrate), we will also see Tamzin Merchant (Imogen Spurnrose) and David Gyasi (Agreus Astrayon) back.
Also joining us will be Karla Crome (Tourmaline Larou), Arty Froushan (Jonah Breakspear), Caroline Ford (Sophie Longerbane) and Andrew Gower (Ezra Spurnrose).
Not joining the cast will be Jared Harris, who played the Chancellor in Season 1, and Indira Varma, who took on the role of his wife.
Carnival Row Season 2: Production
Season 2 of Carnival Row has been in production since November 2019. The stars of the series were seen in an announcement video for the second season, showing their anticipation to return to the set.

Showrunner Marc Guggenheim has also been replaced by Erik Oleson (“Daredevil,” “The Man in the High Castle”).
Other producers include Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevigne, Brad Van Arragon, Sarah Byrd, Jim Dunn, Sam Ernst and Wesley Strick.
