Carnival Row certainly takes fantasy to a whole other level, and it’s been interesting to see the story play out across the two seasons. As the season 2 finale nears, will we have to say goodbye to the series?

Season 2 sees the return of leading man Orlando Bloom who plays Rycroft Philostrate. The  former inspector continues to try and figure out who is behind a number of “gruesome murders,” per the synopsis. Of course this is causing tension within the community. Plus, that’s not the only challenge. Both humans and fae folk are fighting for their freedom.

Joining Bloom onscreen are Cara Delevingne as Vignette Stonemoss, Simon McBurney as Runyan Millworthy, amzin Merchant as Imogen Spurnrose, David Gyasi as Agreus Astrayon, and Andrew Gower as Ezra Spurnrose.

The season 2 finale will be released Friday, March 17, 2023 on the streaming service. So can we expect to see more? We’ve got the answer for you below.

Will there be a season 3 of Carnival Row on Prime Video?

Unfortunately if you were hoping the Carnival Row story would continue, that’s not going to be the case. Since Prime Video started marketing the show’s sophomore season, promotion read “series finale,” meaning the drama got cancelled which came as a surprise to fans.

In an interview with Radio Times, Bloom said the difficulties of filming during the pandemic are the main reason why the series will not be moving forward. Season 2 production started in November 2019, and had to be put on pause only about four months later in March 2020. The positive note the actor had was that those working behind-the-scenes noticed that they had plenty of material to bring the story to a proper ending during that time. Which is why we are where we are today.

We may not all agree with this decision as the fantasy hasn’t been on long. But, at least we can be assured that there will be a proper conclusion to Carnival Row!

Carnival Row season 2 drops new episodes Fridays on Prime Video. The series finale is set for March 17, 2023.
