Carnival Row joined in the fantasy drama genre with its own noir aura. From the growing population, murders, and mythical creatures. The series fitted in a number of elements enough to intrigue the viewers. René Echevarria and Travis Beacham created the series for Amazon Prime Video. It debuted with a total of 8 episodes on August 30, 2019. For the first season, the series received average to mixed reviews. The audience believed that Amazon’s fantasy drama tried to create a beautiful universe. But with its own flaws with not much happening within this world. Still, the show had hoped to improve with another season in turn which fans are now looking forward to.
Carnival Row tells the story of mythical creatures who flew from a war-torn homeland and entered the city. A place where the immigrant population is at its peak. Plus, there are a number of crimes that need answers. From murders, powers, love to social adjustment, there is a lot going on. So anyway, after creating a beautiful world that might have potential, here we are taking a look at if Amazon’s fantasy drama has a second-season run or not. If yes, then what we can expect from it. So let’s begin.
Is Carnival Row Season 2 Happening?
Yes, Carnival Row Season 2 is indeed taking place. In July of 2019, Amazon decided to renew the show for another run. The news broke through the official Twitter handle of the series. Reports suggest that the series went into production in November of 2019 taking the crew to various locations apart from studios in the Czech Republic. The first season of Carnival Row consists of a total of eight episodes each comprising of 50-67 minutes each. So we may expect the same or more for the second season of Carnival Row depending on the plot it’s bringing in.

Carnival Row Season 2 Release Date
Carnival Row Season 2 should be released in early 2022. Although, there is no official release date for Carnival Row Season 2 as of now. Especially because the show’s filming was stopped midway in March of 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. If that wasn’t enough, Marc Guggenheim won’t be the showrunner for Carnival Row Season 2. He is busy with other projects. On top of that, one of the creators of the show Travis Beacham left the show before the second season was commenced. There was the creative difference that marked Beacham’s exit from the project.
Well, that doesn’t mean there is only bad news here and there. Carnival Row Season 2 picked up shooting right after the lockdown was lightened. Only two weeks were required for the team to finish team thus wrapping it up in late August 2020. We are expecting Carnival Row Season 2 to arrive somewhere in late 2021 or early 2022. The first season of Carnival Row is available to stream on Amazon Prime right now.

Expected Plot For Carnival Row
The last season of the Carnival Row saw Philo investigating murders and diving deep into the ancestors of the mythical world. The season ended with Jonah and Sophie joining hands as Vignette and Philo fought the powers. The fight ended giving a new life to Carnival Row as all mythical and magical creatures were free to go. Still, there were a number of unanswered questions left. Will the power return? and of course the personal history of Philo which needs a check.
Carnival Row Season 2 might see a number of characters standing up to the new alliance of Jonah and Sophie. It may be Fae or Philo and Vignette for the liberation. The end result would be a mix of romance, chaos, and action here and there. Furthermore, Philo’s answers to his ancestry might be explored a bit further. This will give him everything he needs to know. Also, where are Imogen and Agreus after they broke from The Burge? All in the second season of Carnival Row.
