Production of Carnival Row resumed only recently after a 5 months Corona related hiatus which left them only weeks from finishing shooting. In order to keep fans from waiting too long for the new episodes, Amazon Prime is apparently considering splitting the season in 2 parts with an additional episode to give fans 5 episodes in season 2.1 and another 4 in the second half of season 2.
Orlando praised new showrunner Erik Oleson, who replaced original showrunner and creator Travis Beacham in a surprise move just after production on Season 2 had begun last autumn, and is very excited to be working with him.
