Fortunately for fans, the series received confirmation for another season. Amazon confirmed the series for renewal back in July 2019. On November 11, 2019, via Carnival Row’s official Instagram page, the commencement of production for season 2, confirmed. But much to our dismay, in March 2020, production came to a halt considering the current pandemic. But soon after, in March 2020, it was halted. According to sources, production is now underway, and season 2 will quickly grace screens. Earlier, the series was to release around August 2020, but that is unlikely.
