Back in 2019, Carnival Row was announced as the upcoming major fantasy television programme that would rival Lucifer, The Witcher, and Good Omens. It had a sizable studio backing it, and stars like Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Jared Harris, and Indira Varma were among the cast members. Everyone put it on their radar right away due to the impressive visual effects and fantasy themes hinted at in the early preview trailers.
Yet while the 2020 shutdown caused many projects to go behind schedule, Carnival Row triumphed despite a delay. After season one’s adventures and cliffhanger, Philo and Vignette returned after a long absence of more than three years.
After seeing seasons 1 and 2, you might be curious as to whether or not this has been renewed. What we do know is this:
What is Carnival Row season 2 about?
Season 2 concentrates more on the gap between humans and supernaturals after season 1 finishes up with the Darkasher mystery and Philo’s enigmatic past. Jonah and Sophie impose separating rules once they are in power, keeping all supernatural beings confined to the Row and forbidding them from flying.
But, a brand-new mystery is keeping Philo busy, and Vignette is working to prevent the Black Raven from attacking people. Agreus and Imogen’s honeymoon period is short-lived there since Ezra pursues them and several Pact rebels capture them.

Has Carnival Row been renewed for season 3?
The bad news is that Amazon has already made a decision regarding Carnival Row. After season 2, Carnival Row has been cancelled, according to the streamers.
Carnival Row was unfortunate because Prime Studios is renowned for giving their shows a chance before cancelling them. As season 2 had already been approved before season 1 had aired, fans had high expectations for it to succeed. The first season, regrettably, did not perform well. Orlando Bloom makes a suggestion that the cancellation may have something to do with the pandemic occurring just as season 2 was going into production.
What we know about season 3 so far:
Season 2 was on a much broader scale than season 1, which was mainly centred on the Burgue as the show began to construct its world and introduce new factions, magical creatures, landscapes, and social structures. We would have wanted for season 3 to take a deeper look at Ragusa, the Pact, and the New Dawn if the programme hadn’t been cancelled.
With Tirnanoc now free of the Pact’s rule, it would also be fascinating to explore the fae’s earliest days. Regarding our favourite characters, Imogen’s growing confidence and sense of identity, together with Darius and Tourmaline’s blossoming romance, might have easily dominated season 3.
If anything changes, we’ll update this page immediately.
