CARNIVAL ROW Season 2 gets airdate and confirmation it will not return

Amazon's much, much-delayed second season of Carnival Row will hit screens on 17 February 2023 and will not return for a third season.

Season 1 of Carnival Row dropped in August 2019 and picked up solid reviews and streaming figures, although it didn't set the world on fire (I quite liked it though). Season 2 of the show seemed to be plagued by difficulties and delays, with shooting interrupted by the COVID19 pandemic and then by star Orlando Bloom taking paternity leave (with some rumours that he ended up shooting most of his scenes separately to everyone else on greenscreen, which will be interesting to see if it's true or not). The show also chewed through executive producers and showrunners, with three leaving between the two seasons or during production of the second season.

The date may hint at a later airdate for the second season of The Wheel of Time. Wheel of Time's second season has been in the can for some time, and in fact shooting is starting on the show's third season fairly soon. Season 2 will likely not now premiere at the earliest until Carnival Row completes its second season, which should be around late March.

Somewhat disappointing news; I also enjoyed the first season quite a bit. One of the show's writers penned a prequel to the first season and produced it as an Audible original: Tangle in the Dark. Based on that, I thought Amazon might have had bigger plans than two seasons.
