Carnival Row has been renewed for a second season. The neo-noir fantasy television series is set to return for a second season. Carnival Row, starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, aired on Amazon Prime in 2019, bringing viewers to a gloomy, Victorian-style dystopian civilization destroyed by war and ethnic hate.
The twist was that it wasn’t people’s skin color that was important, but their species, as fairies and other legendary creatures made up the refugees who were turned down in their new home. Will they succeed in keeping the peace?
Carnival Row Season 2 Release Date
While it is true that the program was last seen on our screens in 2019, and that Amazon had already commissioned season 2 before the first one aired, there is currently no set timetable for the series’ comeback.
According to reports, production began at the end of 2019, only to be put on hold when the pandemic hit in 2020. According to numerous reports, filming has recently begun and will be completed in August 2020. So, does this imply that it will come soon? No, not exactly.
With programs like Carnival Row, there is a lot of post-production work required, especially for the representation of the huge, Victorian-style metropolis and its vast assortment of fantastical people. Having said that, it would be rare for anything like this to take more than a year, so it is probable that Amazon will release the latest episodes of the show very soon. Having said that, it would be unusual for something like this to take over a year.
We’re still going to have to wait. According to Midgard Times, the sitcom has returned to Prague to film the second season. We had heard that filming had concluded, however, it appears that not everything could be completed. Orlando Bloom was unable to attend owing to the birth of his child.
It’s conceivable that Carnival Row Season 2 won’t be released until 2022. We’d want to see it sooner, but we’d rather have the series great than hurried!
We’ll be keeping an eye on things for this series. We’ll notify you once we have a release date.
Carnival Row Season 2 Plot
Amazon inked a development contract for the series on January 9, 2015, with Guillermo del Toro on board as a co-writer, executive producer, and director at the time. The series, which will be co-written by del Toro, Travis Beacham, and Rene Echeverria, is based on Beacham’s feature film spec story, A Killing on Carnival Row.
The studio purchased three screenplays with the assumption that del Toro would helm the premiere episode if the series proceeded into production. The production was awarded a pilot order on June 6, 2016, with the previously stated creative team remaining participating.
Carnival Row, inspired by Neil Gaiman and Mortal Engines, follows “mythical animals that have left their war-torn country and assembled in the metropolis as tensions boil between locals and the rising immigrant population.” The inquiry into a succession of unsolved killings, power mania, unresolved love, and societal changes are at the heart of the story, eating away at whatever uncomfortable serenity remains.
Again, not much is known about what will happen in season 2. At the end of season 1, we know the following.
Absalom plans to kill Philo until his son persuades him that he did not murder Aisling. While swapping stories, Absalom pledges to release Vignette, but he is stabbed in his office by a disguised Quill. Piety confesses to Jonah that Sophie is his half-sister from her affair with Ritter, and Jonah understands that his father has always believed that he is not his actual son.
When Ezra discovers Agreus and Imogen sleeping together, he attempts to shoot Agreus, who hits him. Piety smothers her spouse and examines his liver after discovering Vignette’s existence.
The witch is murdered, alerting Philo to the fact that Vignette is in danger. Piety orders the Darkasher to kill Philo, but Vignette frees herself and stabs Piety with shears, killing both her and her monster.
Because his mother’s body has not been located, Jonah assumes the job of acting chancellor, with Runyon as his primary advisor, and deduces Sophie was behind the blackmails by convincing Piety that Philo, not him, was destined for grandeur.
Nonetheless, Jonah establishes a friendship with Sophie. Agreus and Imogen board Agreus’ ship in search of a new home. In response to the uprisings, Jonah creates a ghetto for the Fae, prohibiting them from leaving the Burgue or interacting with humans, where Fleury is shot for attempting to fly away from the Tetterby Hotel. Philo accepts his fae origins and joins Vignette and the other fairies in the ghetto.
With events at the end of season 1 resulting in the creation of a ghetto in the Burgue, imprisoning all of the fae, including Philo, who willingly joins his oppressed brethren alongside Vignette; Jonah and Sophie forming a political alliance that could be bad news for all non-humans, and Agreus and Imogen leaving on his ship to find a more tolerant world, things are poised nicely.
In the last episode of Season 1, we saw Jonah and Sophie grow more integrated. Vignette and Philo struggle with power while attempting to build a new life on Carnival Row, the home of all strange beings.
Philo finds himself in this predicament when he discovers more about his half-fairy past. Season 2 will most likely center on Fae reaching out to Jonah and Sophie. It will certainly kick off a chain reaction of euphoria, enchantment, and pleasure.
Season 2 of Carnival Row will reveal what happened to Imogen and Agreus after they ran away from The Burge. We can anticipate seeing all of these, as well as answers to the puzzles, in season 2.
Carnival Row Season 2 Characters/Cast
Season 2’s cast is anticipated to be the same, with the following actors returning their roles:
Orlando Bloom stars as Rycroft Philostrate (“Philo”), an Inspector of the Burgue Constabulary who is investigating a sinister plot in the city’s center. As a half-fae and battle veteran, he sympathizes with the fae, much to the chagrin of many of his colleagues.
Cara Delevingne plays Vignette Stonemoss, a fairy and Philo’s former girlfriend who thought he was dead after a war. While struggling with her complex feelings for Philo, she joins a gang of fae ruffians known as the Black Raven.
Simon McBurney plays Runyon Millworthy, a human street performer and the leader of a kobold group.
David Gyasi plays Agreus Astrayon, a rich faun (also known as the pejorative epithet “Puck”) who is ostracized by Burgue high society due to his appearance and background.
Tamzin Merchant plays Imogen Spurnrose, an heiress who becomes engaged with Agreus to finance her lavish lifestyle.
Imogen’s brother, Ezra Spurnrose, is played by Andrew Gower, and he is blamed for mismanaging the family money and putting them into debt.
Tourmaline Larou, Vignette’s companion and former lover, Poet Laureate of Tirnanoc (Tir na ng meaning the “Land of the Youth,” of the Tuatha Dé Danaan, or “People of the Goddess Danu,” a fabled ancient fae race), and a prostitute at the Tetterby Hotel in Carnival Row, is played by Karla Crome.
Jared Harris as Absalom Breakspear, Chancellor of the Republic of the Burgue (season 1).
Jonah Breakspear, Absalom’s son who rebels against his dominating father, is played by Arty Froushan.
Indira Varma as Piety Breakspear (season 1), Absalom’s scheming wife who tries to preserve her family’s heritage.
However, there have been some changes behind the scenes, with Deadline claiming that season one’s showrunner, Marc Guggenheim, has departed the program to focus on other projects he is already working on. Erik Oleson will take over as showrunner, bringing his recent expertise from the third season of Netflix’s Daredevil.
Another notable absentee will be Travis Beacham, one of the show’s creators, who has departed the production claiming artistic disagreements.
