After a long wait for season two, fans of Carnival Row are excited about the much-anticipated ending of this fantasy steampunk show on Prime Video. Here is what the internet had to say about its return and the first two episodes!
In 2019, Prime Video’s Carnival Row starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne immersed viewers into the world of humans, fae, centaurs, and more. Now, almost four years later, the show is back for a second and final season, of which the first two episodes were released last week.
Fans on Twitter are already loving this new season, especially because of its unique world and creative storyline.

I can’t stop listening to the #CarnivalRow soundtrack, composed by @composerbarr. It’s magical, dark and melancholic. pic.twitter.com/rtEeHl6R87

Visually the show itself is very neo-noir, with Victorian elements and eye-catching aesthetics that viewers have been fanning over.
I thought Episode 2 of “Carnival Row” was even better than the first. The visual palette and costume design are great. #CarnivalRow #CarnivalRowSeason2 #RycroftPhilostrate #VignetteStonemoss #TourmalineLarou #SophieLongerbane #JonahBreakspear #AgreusAstrayon pic.twitter.com/uuhyqjtMcG
