It's been a long, long wait for Carnival Row season 2, but it's finally almost here.


The second and final season of the fantasy show will hit Amazon Prime Video very soon and will see Orlando Bloom (Philo) and Cara Delevigne (Vignette) reunite.

The upcoming season will show tensions between humanity and fae ramp up after mysterious killings, with everyone having to choose sides.

Season 1 ended with the revelation about Philo's fae identity, with showrunners Travis Beacham and Marc Guggenheim previously teasing that there's more to come on that.

"It's probably one of the biggest seismic changes to the show itself that happens at the end of the first season, and it's something that we're really going to be dealing with and dramatizing in season 2," Guggenheim told EW.

"And the trick for Philo is, it's not, unfortunately, as simple as him embracing the fact that he's fae. To the fae, he's not really fae. He's a half-blood. So he basically is a man without a country. You know, he's not human enough for the humans, but he's not fae enough for the fae. He kind of exists in this sort of status Twilight Zone."

Here's everything we know about the second season of Carnival Row on Amazon Prime Video.
