Amazon Prime has released a teaser trailer for Carnival Row, an upcoming fantasy period-drama series starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne.
The show is set in a Victorian fantasy world where humans and mythological immigrant creatures co-exist, although the latter not without serious limitations. The creatures aren’t free to live, love or fly with complete freedom. Bloom plays a human detective who rekindles a dangerous affair with a faerie (Delevingne), right as a string of murders threatens to shatter the weak peace.
“Something inhumane approaches,” says Bloom’s character, Rycroft Philostrate. “We must all come together,” says Delevigne’s Vignette Stonemoss. The series comes from René Echevarria (Castle, Teen Wolf) and Travis Beacham (Clash of the Titans, Pacific Rim). It’s a very quick promo, introducing the two leads and a little of the setting. Let’s hope we’re in for something special.
Carnival Row will premiere on Amazon Prime on August 30.
