What is Carnival Row Season 2 Plot?
The series is set in the fantasy world, resembling the classical Victorian era. We find a group of imaginary creatures seeking refuge into a metropolis called ‘The Burgue’ fleeing from their war-torn homeland. The Burgue is the city that has supported fae, a collection of fairies who lived in their native country Tirnanoc.
Finding a safe haven for survival and growth, the population of the mythical refugees started to compound and multiply, which forced them to face native human resistance. The matter turned complex when a series of murders shriveled the fragile mask of existing peace among the residents.
The Burgue is threatened by The Pact, a group of powerful states who started to hunt fairies down and gain control over the native fairy home, Tirnanoc.
As a result, many fairies immigrated from their homeland and started to settle in Carnival Row, which is an enclave located on the South Bank of the Beorn River in The Burgue. This Carnival Row is the home of immigrants like the fae.
We also witness a magical love story emerging out of the fantasy series. Vignette, who is a fierce fae, falls in love with Philo, the Detective of the city during the epic war. Despite their characteristic differences, the duo joins hands to fight the common enemy who threatens to tear The Burgue apart.
The series lets us visualize how serial killings and interspecies tribes amalgamate together to produce a combo of excellent narration and a surreal masterpiece. Season 2 of the series will continue to explore the more profound mysteries of The Burgue and its inhabitants. Moreover, we have only reached the tip of the iceberg as far as the mysteries of the serial killing are concerned.
