In November 2019, it was reported that production had commenced. But soon after in March 2020, it was halted. This was done because of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Later on, reports made a way that preparation was underway for resumption.
According to sources, the second season of the series was set to grace screens, later in 2020. But the outbreak of Covid-19 had spoiled all plans of release. Furthermore, the shooting was being done in Prague, and since the city is on lockdown, shooting was halted.

Carnival Row Season 2: Plot
In season one of the series, we saw the investigations of Darkasher killings by Philo. Along with it, he found out that he was a fae. Moreover, he found connections to the people who were involved in the killings. The storyline made quite a few openings for season 2. Philo also joined the dots and found out that the chancellor was his father. He is torn between two worlds: Half-human and half-fae.
Season 2 may focus on Philo joining Vignette. And this might be the reason for giving up his badge. Furthermore, it may involve fae’s fight which will be about liberation. It is likely, that it will be against the alliance formed between Jonah Breakspear and Sophie Longerbane.
Carnival Row Season 2: Storyline
The premise of Carnival Row involves mythical creatures. These mythical creatures are said to have fled their homeland which was in ruins because of a war. In addition to this, as they come together in the city tensions arise between humans and said creatures. In the middle of the series, there are investigations of unsolved murder mysteries.
The series depicts the craze for power, unrequited love, and social adaptations. While these elements eat away the peace from people’s lives.
