Carnival Row has decided to end after its upcoming second season. This is understandable given the time that has passed between seasons, yet it is somewhat disheartening considering the project’s rocky start. This idea was first presented in a 2005 spec script by Travis Beacham titled A Killing on Carnival Row.
The original plan called for Guillermo del Toro to take the helm of the feature picture adaptation of Carnival Row. With the help of Rene Echevarria, Beacham turned the concept into a television series. as well as some shifts behind the scenes. When season 1 reshoots were necessary, Echevarria stepped down as showrunner and was replaced by Marc Guggenheim.
To devote more time to a DC crossover event on the CW, Guggenheim departed the program before the second season began, and he was replaced by Erik Oleson. And somewhere in there, the original idea’s creator, Beacham, quit Carnival Row due to artistic disagreements. It appears that its fate was sealed from the start.
