The teaser of the show promises an edge-of-your-seat thriller and to make things even better, Develigne will be featuring as a refugee faerie. The show is set to premiere soon and before it does, here is all you have got to know:
'Carnival Row' will premiere on August 30, 2019.
Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevigne lead the series as human detective Rycroft Philostrate and refugee faerie Vignette Stonemoss. David Gyasi of 'Interstellar' fame also stars as Agreus, a wealthy faun who moves into an affluent human neighborhood in defiance of the social order, while Karla Crome from 'Misfits' plays Tourmaline, a faerie poet driven from her homeland. Jared Harris ('Mad Men', 'Chernobyl') will feature in a recurring role as Absalom Breakspear. Indira Varma ('Game of Thrones') and Tamzin Merchant ('The Tudors') are also set to appear as Piety Breakspear and Imogen Spurnrose, respectively.
The show, created by René Echevarria and Travis Beacham, is directed by Jon Amiel. The project is based on Beachem's 'A Killing on Carnival Row' which appeared on the very first installment of the Hollywood Blacklist in 2005.
The series, set in a Victorian fantasy world, follows Delevigne's character who flees her homeland after an invasion turns the place into a war-zone and falls in love with Bloom's stern human detective character. According to Amazon, '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."
In the increasingly intolerant world that they live in, a refugee faerie and human detective rekindle hope by striking a romantic affair. Vignette (Delevigne) harbors a secret that endangers Philo's (Bloom) world during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row.
