If you’re into out-there gothic horror with a dash of freaky faeries that like to f*ck, then you must be ready for Amazon’s Carnival Row to premiere on August 30, 2019! Starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, this series looks like a darkly interesting good time! You’ve got murder, mystery, monsters and the aforementioned frisky faeries! And now, we’ve just learned from Deadline that the show has ALREADY been renewed for a second season! Not a bad sign! Be sure to check out the brand new teaser trailer up top!
Orlando Bloom (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN) plays a human detective and Cara Delevingne plays a refugee faerie. Together, the pair “rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society and Vignette harbors a secret that endangers Philo’s world during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row.” In addition to Bloom and Delevingne, Carnival Row also stars David Gyasi (INTERSTELLAR) as a mysteriously wealthy faun who moves into an affluent human neighborhood in defiance of the social order, Karla Crome (Under the Dome) as a quick-witted faerie poet driven from her war-torn homeland, Indira Varma (Game of Thrones) as the regal and cunning matriarch of the powerful family that rules the city of The Burgue, and Tamzin Merchant (Salem) as a young woman who sees an opportunity to turn her aristocratic family’s fading fortunes around.
