Amazon Prime Video made a big splash during San Diego Comic-Con 2019 with panels and activations. The Expanse and The Boys were two shows that made appearances. Carnival Row was also present with stars Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, and it was the perfect setting for the pop-culture mecca with its Victorian fantasy world. The series isn’t premiering until late August, but Amazon has already announced that it has been renewed for a second season.

Carnival Row is a one-hour fantasy drama from Amazon Studios and Legendary Television, with Bloom as a human detective and Delevingne as a faerie. In a world where creatures are treated like second-class citizens, the two will come to find love in a hostile world.

Synopsis: Carnival Row is a series set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant 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. But even in darkness, hope lives, as 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.

The show also stars David Gyasi (Interstellar) as Agreus, Karla Crome (Under the Dome) as Tourmaline, Indira Varma (Game of Thrones) as Piety Breakspear, and Tamzin Merchant (Salem) as Imogen Spurnrose.d

The show is executive produced by Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Eli Stone), Rene Echevarria (Star Trek, Teen Wolf, Castle, Medium), Jon Amiel, Orlando Bloom, and Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans). The series is based on Beacham’s A Killing on Carnival Row, which appeared on the first installment of the Hollywood Blacklist in 2005.

Carnival Row premieres Friday, August 30, 2019 on Amazon Prime Video.
