Cara Delevingne and Orlando Bloom hit comic-con over the weekend to promote “Carnival Row,” the new fantasy drama series set in the Victorian era. The show features a world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man. The series explores how the population struggles to coexist with humans and the difficulties that they face trying to survive. Amazon dropped two character trailers to promote the show, introducing Delevingne and Bloom’s characters.
In the story, the creatures are feared by humans, and are forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. The studio teased the show on social media adding, “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.”
If you’re a fan of the genre, you can find the series right here on Prime and add the show to your watch-list for premiere day. The series 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.
Cara Delevingne and Orlando Bloom star as the human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne). The duo rekindles a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society.
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.
“Carnival Row” is scheduled to premiere on Prime Video on August 30th.
