Amazon has finally set the date for Carnival Row Season 2. It comes with some disappointing news for those who want more.

We finally have a premiere date for Carnival Row Season 2. It has only taken three+ years to get this date! Sadly, it’s not going to be in 2022, but we don’t have to wait too long into the new year for the episodes.

There was some bad news with the renewal, though. The series is coming to an end.

Why is Carnival Row Season 2 the last?

The second (and now final) season will come to Prime Video on Friday, Feb. 17, 2023. The episodes will release weekly, according to TVLine, and that would usually mean there’s a push to bring more seasons. That’s not the case here, though.

As well as bringing us the premiere date and a first-look teaser, Amazon has confirmed the season will be the last. Why is that? There isn’t an official reason, but there are plenty of potential ones.

The biggest is likely cost as well as the time it’s taken to get this latest season. Granted, the delays were linked to the pandemic, but it was likely clear that the lack of promotion from Amazon in between the seasons and this delay would mean it difficult to get viewers back. A lot of other shows have been cancelled after the pandemic season, and some of those had a lot more promotion on social media—like The Wilds.

Amazon isn’t the only streamer struggling with this. Hulu cancelled Dollhouse earlier this year, and Netflix has cancelled Fate: The Winx Saga. We’re likely to see more happen.
