A rather surprising indiscretion comes directly from The Hollywood Reporter: Amazon has decided to cancel Carnival Row, an original fantasy series produced by Legendary Television, which sees among the cast faces known as Orlando Bloom And Cara Delevingne. The second season, arriving on February 17, 2023 and consisting of 10 episodes, will therefore be the last. Erik Oleson will be the showrunner, replacing Marc Guggenheim (arrow) and Travis Beacham.
Amazon Prime Video has canceled Carnival Row
The precise reasons around the cancellation are not known, but the delay in production due to the pandemic and the various creative changes contributed to the final decision of the platform. The first season arrived on Amazon Prime Video in 2019. Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean) e Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) are the protagonists of Carnival Row, a series set in a Victorian fantasy world, where mythological creatures also live, forced to flee their kingdoms of origin, following the invasion suffered by men. For these creatures, which are forbidden to live, love and fly freely, it is impossible to coexist with humans.
But even in the darkness, hope survives: a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom), and a fairy, Stonemoss cartoons (Delevingne), enter into a dangerous relationship in an increasingly less tolerant society. Vignette also harbors a secret that could endanger the world of Philostrate just as he is following the most important case of his life: a series of horrific murders that jeopardize the peace at row.
For the second season of Carnival Row, Amazon will adopt a different distribution strategy than in the past: the first two episodes will arrive on February 17, followed by the third and fourth on February 24. The fifth and sixth will debut on March 3, followed by the seventh and eighth on March 10. The final two episodes will then arrive on March 17. Season 1 currently has a 57% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for critics and 87% for audiences.
