Carnival Row S2 Officially Resumes Production

carnivalrowart.jpg

The official Carnival Row accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook have confirmed that the production of Season 2 of the Amazon Prime series is back on track again with this video.

Watch Cara Delevingne, Orlando Bloom, Tamzin Merchant and David Gyasi tease what’s in store for their characters and the world of Carnival Row in Season 2!

In the past few days, they had already shared some posts on their personal Instagram accounts that seemed to indicate that they’re back in Prague.

The show had been put on hiatus to allow the new showrunner Erik Oleson and new story editor Laurie Penny to review the existing material after a major shake up behind scenes had seen the original creator Travis Beacham leave the show due to “creative differences”.

Even though, Andrew Gower doesn’t appear in the video, he is confirmed to reprise his role as Ezra Spurnrose and will probably be seen hunting his fugitive sister Imogen (Tamzin Merchant) and her forbidden lover Agreus (David Gyasi) in the new season.

IMG_20190925_093520_059.jpg

Carnival Row‘s creator Travis Beacham shared this picture via his Instagram account from the first day of filming season 2 this morning. Actors already seen on set (or on the way to set) include Cara Delevingne, Orlando Bloom, Tamzin Merchant, David Gyasi, Caroline Ford and Ariyon Bakare.

Also reprising his role as Ezra Spurnrose will be Andrew Gower.

This means production of the new episodes begins almost to the day two years after principal photography for season 1 started.

We’ll keep you posted with all news as soon as we find them.

Follow our social media accounts on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for the full coverage!

Ezra is back for Carnival Row S2

We take this picture (shared by Carnival Row creator Travis Beacham on his Instagram) as official confirmation that Andrew Gower will be reprising his role as Ezra Spurnrose in the show’s second season.

Actors already seen on set (or on the way to set) include Cara Delevingne, Orlando Bloom, Tamzin Merchant, David Gyasi, Caroline Ford and Ariyon Bakare.

So far it can only be speculated when new episodes of the fantasy-noir series will be released on Amazon Prime but some time in 2021 seems likely.

Carnival Row: Getting Ready for Season 2

IMG_20190910_173754_671.jpg

All the signs are all pointing in the right direction: season 2 of Carnival Row is coming, and, as they did during the production of season 1, the cast and crew are keeping us updated with Behind the Scenes photos via their social media accounts.

After scouting for some new locations that will be featured in the new season, the cast are starting to arrive at the Barrandov Studios in Prague (Czech Republic), where most of season 1 was filmed.

Andrew Gower‘s involvement in season 2 isn’t confirmed yet but we are rather confident that we haven’t seen the last of his character Ezra Spurnrose.

Follow our social media accounts (Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) as we’re trying to report and share all news Andrew Gower and Carnival Row!

First Look: Poldark ADR Session

British actress Kerri McLean, who will play “formidable new character” Catherine Despard in the upcoming 5th season of Poldark, shared the following pictures from their first ADR session on Instagram. ADR stands for automatic or automated dialogue replacement, and – according to this article – is usually done towards the end of the editing and post-production process.

So we not only get a first glance at the new season but it also means post-production for Poldark is in its final stages!

Not long now until we can see Ross and Demelza again – and of course meet James Hadfield played by Andrew Gower!


ETA:

Actor Harry Richardson, who plays Demelza Poldark’s brother Drake Carne, has now also shared a picture on his Instagram, sneakily taken during his ADR session.

Season 2 for Carnival Row?

carnival row

According to writer Travis Beacham, Andrew‘s upcoming series Carnival Row starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, is in talks for a second season already. After all the buzz the show has already created over the past one and a half years since production was announced, this is hardly suprising and proof we are really in for a treat and Amazon Studios like the material they’ve got from season one.

Let’s just hope we’ll get to see some of that material as well soon!

arkIG03

With simultaneous posts on Instagram, Andrew Gower, Tamzin Merchant and Barney Douglas announced their new project today. They recently filmed short film Ark near Horndal, Sweden at the Smens Experience Retreat.

Andrew and Tamzin previously worked together on Carnival Row and Running Naked which are both scheduled to be released this year.

Follow Andrew Gower, Tamzin Merchant and Barney Douglas on Instagram and visit our Ark Gallery.

Last week of filming Carnival Row

Carnival Row‘s Travis Beacham shared these two shots from the “final week on set“.

Let’s hope it really is the final “final” week of filming and we’ll soon have more news, pictures, trailers and a release date for the upcoming Amazon Prime show!


ETA:

Orlando Bloom and Travis Beacham have both confirmed via Instagram that Carnival Row has wrapped filming (again) this morning at 4am.

Andrew cast in Poldark

theandrewgower_20190117223750.png

If we interpret Andrew Gower‘s latest Instagram post correctly, he’s filmed some scenes for the upcoming (and presumably last) season of historical period drama Poldark.

James Hadfield is an actual historical figure, a solider in the French Revolutionary Wars, who attempted to assassinate the British King George III but was acquitted of attempted murder by reason of insanity.

Sounds like a “killer” of a character for Andrew to play!

Filming of Poldark‘s 5th and final season has been underway since September 2018 and it is scheduled to be released later this year. No release date has been announced as of yet, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more!
