Carnival Row Season 2: What will the second season offer to the audiences?
The major plots of season one included Darkasher killings that Philo was investigating and the mystery of Philo’s origin. Philo was seen torn between the two worlds, as he was half-fae and half-human. He was forced to hide his true nature. The season finale saw Philo embracing his fae identity and he joined Vignette in the ghetto.
So season two will focus on the fae’s fight for liberation against the new alliance of Jonah Breakspear and Sophie Longerbane. It will be interesting to know the show’s crime mystery elements in this upcoming season. We will also see how Philo and Vignette will solve new cases in season 2.
