Creatures And Men Must Come Together In Carnival Row Teaser

by Erik Amaya

Amazon has released a teaser for its upcoming 9-part series Carnival Row. Cara Delevingne and Orlando Bloom star as a faerie and a human detective in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures. Feared by humans, the immigrants are forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. And as the human and the faerie rekindle an affair, the city’s uneasy peace collapses when a string of murders reveals a monster no one could imagine. Will they be able to bridge the gap and make a proper peace or will it all collapse into darkness and despair?

Created by Rene Echevarria and Travis Beacham, the series is part of Amazon’s new fantasy initiative. The shorter episode order should make this a show worth watching as the similarly paced Good Omens did not overstay its welcome. Will short-order fantasy series become the norm? We hope so if it means high quality, well-paced series.

Carnival Row comes to Amazon on August 30th.
