Carnival Row Season 2

It’s been three years since the show premiered. The second season was in production not too long after season one had debuted in 2019, but was quickly derailed by the pandemic. They didn’t wrap until nearly two years later. To say the series has had a rough go of it is an understatement, but it’s back next month.

Season two’s story starts directly after the end of season one, which is on Amazon Prime. Relations between the leaders of humankind and the Critch have gotten exceedingly more violent. Executions without trial are answered with a revolution that will change The Burgue forever. Can the fae survive?
