Amazon released another teaser for “Carnival Row,” a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures. While the video is short, viewers do get a quick preview of the creatures that inhabit the Victorian setting, and quick shot of our duo.
According to the studio the creatures are feared by humans, and are forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. The studio teased on social media, “But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective and a faerie rekindle a dangerous affair. The city’s uneasy peace collapses when a string of murders reveals a monster no one could imagine.”
You can find Amazon’s original series right here on Prime Video, or sign-up for a free trial. The show joins a growing list of hits on the platform, including “Good Omens,” “Hanna,” “Fleabag,” “Jack Ryan,” “Sneaky Pete,” “Bosch,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and more.
As we mentioned earlier, the series is set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man. This growing population struggles to coexist with humans — forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. The story picks up when a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society. 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.
Joining Bloom and Delevingne, the series also stars David Gyasi (Interstellar) as Agreus, a mysteriously wealthy faun who moves into an affluent human neighborhood in defiance of the social order, Karla Crome (Under the Dome) as Tourmaline, a quick-witted faerie poet driven from her war-torn homeland, Indira Varma (Game of Thrones) as Piety Breakspear, the regal and cunning matriarch of the powerful family that rules the city of The Burgue, and Tamzin Merchant (Salem) as Imogen Spurnrose, a young woman who sees in Agreus an opportunity to turn her aristocratic family’s fading fortunes around.
Cara Delevingne followed up her role in “Suicide Squad” with several high-profile roles on screen. In 2017 Delevingne starred in both “Tulip Fever” and “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.” The following year Delevingne starred in the hit drama “Her Smell” with Elisabeth Moss, and the film “London Fields” with Amber Heard and Gemma Chan. Fans of the actor will see her in the romantic-drama “Life in a Year” with Jaden Smith and Nia Long, and the Richard Hughes’ thriller “Punk” with Colson Baker.
In the same time frame, Orlando Bloom starred in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” and the Ludwig and Paul Shammasian drama “Romans.” Bloom also worked on “The Outpost,” with Scott Eastwood and Milo Gibson, and will star in the sci-f adaptation of John Ridley’s “Needle in a Timestack.”
Getting back to “Carnival Row,” the new series is scheduled to premiere on Prime Video on August 30th.
