A new Amazon Prime original series is on it’s way this August. Carnival Row will star Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne taking on “something inhuman.” See the teaser here:
The show looks a little steampunk and a lot of Jack The Ripper, mixed with magic of course. The IMDB description reads:
“As a serial killer preys on mystical creatures in a dark futuristic Victorian city, a detective on the case becomes the prime suspect in the murders.”
I am sure it can be assumed that Mr. Bloom is this detective they speak of. Maybe we get something in the vein of Bill Willingham’s comic series Fables. Something is hunting down magical creatures so Delevingne will seek him out and they work together. Strangely enough, all the clues they uncover lead straight to him. Maybe they’ll develop some trust issues and split up during the series and that’s when another murder takes place, thrusting them back together.
Whatever it ends up being about, it is a super interesting concept and I will definitely be tuning in. Carnival Row hits Amazon Prime Video on August 30, 2019.
Will you be tuning in? Who is your favorite TV detective?
