Carnival Row debuted on Amazon Prime Video on 30th August 2019. Created by René Echevarria and Travis Beacham, the show is a fine blend of urban fantasy, politics, and fiction. Over the years, Amazon has brought many fantasy shows at our disposal. These include the likes of The Boys, Good Omens, and The Expanse. Since its release, Carnival Row quickly manages to gain popularity and rack up a fanbase.
What Is The Show About?
The show revolves around mythological creatures whose empire has been destroyed by humans. As a result, these creatures are forced to coexist with humans for their survival. However, the creatures are forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. In the midst of all this, a detective rekindles a dangerous affair with a refugee who has secret powers to harm the detective’s world. The plot follows the detective on his important case as a string of gruesome murders threaten the uneasy peace of the Row.
With an IMDb rating of 7.9/10, the show has been a hit so far. And after the success of the first season, Carnival is officially renewed for season 2.
When Will Carnival Row Season 2 Release?
The second season of the neo-noir fantasy series was announced before season 1 even premiered. As Amazon is still building its original content, season 2 is expected to premiere in Summer 2021. The series is in the production phase. However, the outbreak of the pandemic has halted every major production. Hence, it will be interesting to see if season 2 can keep up with the proposed release date.
What To Expect From the New Season?
The show follows the journey of detective Rycroft “Philo” Philostrate and his affairs with the refugee Vignette. However, Vignette holds a secret that can put an end to Philo’s world. As the detective embarks on his most important case, a string of gruesome murders threaten the existence of his world.
Season 1 left us with the dark harsher killings and the origins of Feliz. Following what happened in the concentration camps, we can expect a war in the coming season. Fae can fight for the liberation against the injustice of Jonah Breakspear and Sophie Longerbane’s new alliance.
