A torrid-turned-tortured interspecies romance is front and center in the full-length trailer for Carnival Row, premiering Friday, Aug. 30 on Amazon Prime.
Set for an eight-episode binge release and already renewed for Season 2, the series is set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man. As this growing population struggles to coexist with humans — forbidden to live, love or fly with freedom — a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Pirates of the Caribbean‘s Orlando Bloom), and a refugee faerie, Vignette Stonemoss (Suicide Squad‘s Cara Delevingne), rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society.
Vignette, meanwhile, harbors a secret that endangers Philo’s world during his most important case yet — investigating a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy interspecies peace of the titular enclave.
