Los Angeles (PTI) Ahead of the premiere of its first season on Amazon, Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne-led fantasy series “Carnival Row” has been renewed for a sophomore run.
Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke made the announcement during the Television Critics Association press tour, The Wrap reported.
The first season of the series, which is based on a feature film speculative screenplay, written by Travis Beacham entitled “A Killing on Carnival Row”, will be released on the streaming platform on August 30.
It is 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 co-exist under the onerous laws of humanity.
Vignette (Delevingne) and Philo (Bloom) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society. Vignette also harbours 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 series also features David Gyasi, Karla Crome, Indira Varma and Tamzin Merchant.
Beacham along with Rene Echevarria serve as the series creators. Jon Amiel is attached to direct.
