Carnival Row: It’s a Final Wrap!

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.

Bloom, who is also one of the show’s executive producers, announced in an interview with entertainment website Collider that Season 2 would be split into 2 parts.

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.

We are sure it is worth the wait and are excited to see Andrew Gower back again as Ezra Spurnrose!
