WHAT’S THE PLOT OF CARNIVAL ROW SEASON 2?
There are many burning questions aroused after the season 1 finale of Carnival Row like “Is Piety Breakspear truly dead?”, “Will Jonah marry his half-sister Sophie?”, “Where are Imogen and Mr. Agreus Headed? & “What’s the Pact deal, What Do They Want”?
While the grandeur and scale of the show’s fantasy portion is definitely going to be bigger and predominant in season 2 the main story arcs can only be speculated as of yet.

He tweets: “We are hard at work on season 2, and we’re definitely going to some unexpected places. There’s a lot going on with these characters and for many you’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg. #CarnivalRow”
