Production of “Carnival Row” Season 2 has started, but there will be a planned hiatus in the near future to allow for changes in the direction of the story. The TV series has a new showrunner who may decide on where he wants to take the story.

Travis Beecham, on whose story the show is based, is leaving because of creative differences. Writer Marc Guggenheim will also be leaving, but his decision has more to do with his commitment to the Arrowverse’s crossover event and he will still be involved as a consultant for “Carnival Row.”

After the big exits, the TV series will be helmed by Erik Oleson, who previously worked on “The Man in the High Castle” and “Daredevil.” Since the production of the show has already started, there may not be any changes to the scripts that have already been completed and are scheduled to be filmed. However, Screen Rant reported that the show will take a short break to allow the new showrunner a chance to give his inputs and possibly take the show in a new direction if required.

Oleson signed a deal with Amazon Studios in March, The Hollywood Reporter reported. His joining “Carnival Row” Season 2 marks the third showrunner for the TV series. The other big exit for the show previously was of director Paul McGuigan, and his place was taken by Jon Amiel.

Meanwhile, cast member Cara Delevingne, who plays the faerie Vignette Stonemoss, has been elevated to the role of executive producer. Fellow cast member Orlando Bloom, who plays the human detective Rycroft Philostrate, is also an executive producer.

As far as the plot of the show is concerned, Guggenheim had previously said that the number of creatures will increase. The fans will also get to see new sub-species of the creatures with new designs of the faerie wings and new designs of horns.

The producers are yet to announce a release date for “Carnival Row” Season 2. It remains to be seen what changes the new showrunner will make.
