At the time of this writing, Amazon Prime Video hasn’t announced the release date of the second season of Carnival Row. The first season took almost 17 months to hit the streaming service after wrapping up filming, so if Carnival Row Season 2 follows the same pace, we can expect it to premiere in early 2022. Although filming is already done for the new season, it’s highly unlikely that Season 2 will be released in a few weeks.
According to various reports, Season 2 is expected to air in August 2022, but Amazon Prime Video hasn’t announced an official release date yet. We will update you with the latest information about its release date once we get an official word.
Expected Cast for Carnival Row Season 2
Most of the actors from season 1 are expected to return in Carnival Row Season 2. So, the cast for the second installment will include Cara Delevingne, Orlando Bloom, Tamzin Merchant, David Gyasi, Karla Crome, Simon McBurney, Andrew Gower, Caroline Ford, and Arty Foshan. On top of that, Jamie Harris will be recurring her role as the main cast of the show.
Anticipated Storyline for Carnival Row Season 2
The opening episode of the second season will see Jack handcuffed and being led away by the police. A show that is supposed to be about the police and their procedures were being used to introduce the audience to the idea that Jack is a bad guy. That was the wrong choice for a show that is about the police. The story of the second season should be about the consequences of Jack’s actions, and the police’s actions. It should also explore how the characters deal with the consequences of those actions. The first season ended with the characters blaming Jack for their problems, and the second season should end with them realizing that they have a lot of problems of their own.
