Carnival Row Season 2: Production Details
The Carnival Row Season 2 got into production back in November 2019. However, the pandemic happened, and the country was shut down. The shooting was suspended on March 12, when only two weeks of shooting were left. Now, months after, recent reports reveal that Carnival Row Season 2 has completed the filming. Variety recently reported that the Czech Republic had allowed all the international shoots from May 7, 2020. However, American shows did not start the production until the agreements between Hollywood and other unions were in place.
David Minkowski, the producer from Stillking Films, says that Carnival Row Season 2 is the first global show that got back on its feet and completed filming. In his statement, Minkowski says that the film industry has suffered a lot because of the COVID-19. He appreciates that the Czech government made fast decisions and supported the film industry in restarting the production. The producer went on to say that Honestly, they had adopted strict health and safety measures even though the virus count in the city was quite low. This is good news that the show has completed the show.
What Is Coming Up?
The first season of Carnival Row left fans with two major storylines; these are the storylines that could be explored in Carnival Row Season 2. The first storyline included the Darkasher killings, where Philo was investigating the mystery of Philo’s origins. This whole investigation turned out to be connected when everyone came to know that Piety Breakspear was responsible for all the killings and Chancellor Absalom Breakspear is Philo’s father.
Since Philo was a half-far, half-human, he found himself in a tough space. He found himself quite torn between the two worlds. He forcibly had to hide his real nature. Then Jonah Breakspear over-took his fathers’ place, and Chancellor declared war on the non-humans. Leading to all of this, all the Carnival Row inhabitants found themselves stuck in what they called concentration camp within the Burge. When Philo saw Vignette on the other side, Philo declared himself a critch and joined Vignette and his other faes in Carnival Row.
As for Carnival Row Season 2, one can expect to see Fae’s fighting for their freedom from the new alliance created by Jonah Breakspear and Sophie Longerbane. In the meantime, we might also get to see the lovers Agreus Astrayon and Imogene Spurnrose as they find themselves on the run.
Ezra, on the other hand, will have to deal with all the after-effects of the ongoing war. It will be very interesting to see how the writers retain their crime mystery in the upcoming events. This war and all the events will indeed introduce a new case of Vignette and Philo as they move onto Carnival Row Season 2.
When Would The Show Release?
The second season of the show was to release sometime in 2020. However, with the whole pandemic situation going on, it seemed less likely that the second season would release 2020.
