Amazon Prime Video has shared a first look at Carnival Row Season 2 with a few behind-the-scenes photos! The streaming service says that production on Carnival Row Season 2 has just wrapped.
Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) star in the Amazon Original series, a one-hour fantasy drama 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. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society.
Vignette harbors 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 stars Simon McBurney (The Borgias) as Runyan Millworthy, an eccentric traveling showman who leads a troupe of strange creatures called kobolds back to the city where he began his once proud, now fading career.
David Gyasi (Interstellar) plays Agreus, a mysteriously wealthy faun who moves into an affluent human neighborhood in defiance of the social order.
Tamzin Merchant (Salem) plays Imogen Spurnrose, a young woman who sees in Agreus an opportunity to turn her aristocratic family’s fading fortunes around.
Andrew Gower (Outlander) is Ezra Spurnrose, the neurotic son of a prosperous watchmaker, who’s lately gambled his deceased father’s fortune on the considerably more risky enterprise of ferrying migrant workers from the fae homelands.
Karla Crome (Under the Dome) portrays Tourmaline, a quick-witted faerie poet driven from her war-torn homeland. Arty Froushan (Knightfall) stars as Jonah Breakspear, a compulsive playboy whose carousing in the brothels of Carnival Row threatens to destroy his father’s political legacy.
Caroline Ford (Once Upon a Time) is Sophie Longerbane, a ceaselessly clever and mysterious young noblewoman who’s grown up sequestered away by her tyrannical father.
Indira Varma (Game of Thrones) plays Piety Breakspear, the regal and cunning matriarch of the powerful family that rules the city of The Burgue.
And Jared Harris (Chernobyl) plays Absalom Breakspear, the imperious and secretive Chancellor of the Burgue, besieged by political enemies from all sides.
Carnival Row is from Amazon Studios and Legendary Television. Erik Oleson (The Man in the High Castle, Daredevil) took over as showrunner for Carnival Row Season 2. The series is based on co-creator Travis Beacham’s A Killing on Carnival Row.
The executive producers include Erik Oleson, Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Marc Guggenheim, René Echevarria, Jon Amiel, and Travis Beacham.
