A teaser for the final season of carnival row just dropped from the skies, heralding the series’ return to Amazon Prime Video in 2023.
Vestige of the original Amazon series, carnival row had undoubtedly seen his fans despair of seeing his sequel land or at least a conclusion to his story, since his debut. Yet his original concept of urban and victorian fantasy was enough to allow this intriguing black thriller to float in the field of television offers, all the more so if we consider its headliners. Certainly, they are no longer so much the actors of the moment but, in 2019, Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne still benefited from an aura sufficient to carry an ambitious project on their shoulders.
With Guillermo del Toro producing and directing certain episodes, carnival row was full of promises. In the end, it is in general indifference that his first season will have rested, despite several fairly positive public returns. Then suddenly – when oblivion had almost entirely triumphed over its existence -, an unexpected teaser has just dropped to announce the second and final season.
The reunion time is very short, but still offers us a new insight into the characters of Rycroft and Vignette. While the fairy drops her companion into the void, in a rather pretty scene of tragic separation, the last images reveal her hesitation to catch up with him. Betrayal or symbolic testing of the couple? The mystery hovers.
Be that as it may, after a long wait and delayed filming due to the pandemic, die-hard fans of carnival row will finally have the chance to know the rest of the series, even if unfortunately, this second act will also be the last. An opportunity for Amazon not to leave this story in the lurch, however, without a satisfactory outcome.
It remains to be seen if the return will be a winner and not a wet firecracker knowing that everything will have to be completed in the space of only ten episodes. This final season will therefore be available on Amazon Prime Video from February 17, 2023., four years after the first season. Now that the streaming platform has grown in popularity with bigger series like The Boys Where Rings of Powerremains to be seen if the series will find a wider audience, curious to give it a chance.
