Production of season 2 had been halted amid the on-going Covid-19 pandemic in mid-March 2020. Later that year, the decision was made to split season 2 which was explained by Orlando Bloom, lead actor and executive producer on the show, in an interview with entertainment website Collider:

To keep the momentum of the show moving forward […] they are going to release the first half of the season and add one [episode].”

We would like to go back and polish it off a little bit. I managed to get in and out and get some stuff done so we could close out that first half of the second season…”

Season 2 of Carnival Row originally started filming in late September 2019. Cara Delevingne, Orlando Bloom, Tamzin Merchant, David Gyasi, Caroline Ford, Ariyon Bakare and Andrew Gower are all confirmed to reprise their roles.

In recent days Czech production service company Stillking Films had already shared some images on their Instagram account teasing a return of Carnival Row and confirming the presence of director Andy Goddard and make-up/special effects designer Nick Dudman at Barrandov Studios, where the popular Amazon Prime series is filmed.

Hair designer Francesco Pegoretti, who received an Oscar nomination for his work on Pinocchio this year, also shared a photo of himself on a plane heading to the Czech capital.
