The supermodel/Suicide Squad actress will star opposite Orlando Bloom in the fantasy noir drama, from writer/producer Rene Echevarria (Teen Wolf, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine).
The eight-episode series is set in a neo-Victorian city, where mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland have gathered. As tensions simmer between citizens and the immigrant population, Bloom’s police inspector risks everything to solve the murder of a faerie showgirl on the titular Carnival Row. Delevingne will play Vignette Stonemoss, a faerie refugee who comes to the Burgue, where she is faced with human prejudice against her kind and secrets from her past.
Carnival Row — which marks Delevingne’s first major TV role — is slated to premiere on the streaming service in 2019.
