Two years after the cast of Carnival Row came together in Prague to start filming Season 2 of the Amazon Prime series, it is finally a wrap!
The second installment of the neo-noir drama was first officially announced on 27 July 2019, more than a month before Season 1 premiered on the streaming platform but producton suffered some severe delays due to a change in showrunners, the Covid-19 pandemic and Orlando Bloom’s paternal leave following the birth of his daughter Daisy Dove with singer/actress Katy Perry.
“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 2.1 wrapped after a short re-shoot in August 2020 and cast & crew returned to Barrandov Studois in the Czech Republic in May 2021 to film the remaining 5 episodes of Season 2.2.
On 9 September 2021 several cast & crew members took to social media to celebrate the final wrap of Season 2. Amazon Prime hasn’t confirmed a release date for any of the new episode but speculation points to early 2022 for the first half and 2023 for the second.
