'Carnival Row' Teaser: See Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne in Neo-Noir Fantasy Series
The video debuted Monday, and it introduces the world in which their characters live. There are humans and faeries living alongside each other, but the humans fear the faeries and have forbidden them to live, love, or fly with freedom. In the midst of all that, there is a string of mysterious murders in the city.
Bloom portrays Rycroft Philostrate, a human detective, while Delevingne's character is a faerie named Vignette Stonemoss. The two explain the tense situation in the teaser, describing "a rift in the city" and the threat of "something inhuman." It seems the humans and faeries may have to band together. Watch below.
"Carnival Row" comes from René Echevarria and Travis Beacham and is set for eight episodes. The series will premiere Aug. 30 on Amazon Prime Video.
