Carnivale to Return for a Second Season Source: The Hollywood Reporter Friday, December 12, 2003
HBO has greenlighted a second season for Carnivale, ordering 13 more episodes. Production is expected to begin in the spring in anticipation of returning the Depression-era drama to air sometime in late 2004.
Created by Daniel Knauf, Carnivale completed its 13-episode first season earlier this month with an episode drawing 3.5 million total viewers, just under its season average.
While HBO's more established series such as The Sopranos and Sex and the City attract much bigger audiences, Carnivale earned a respectable viewership on par with another of its critically acclaimed dramas, The Wire.
