Amazon Prime Video had a very busy Saturday with their season five pick up announcement of The Expanse as well as the first teaser trailer for Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan‘s second season. But that was not it for the streaming service that at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con took over an entire block across the street from the convention center focusing on their new series The Boys, which just debuted this past Friday, The Expanse and their next Amazon Prime Original to debut in a little over a month Carnival Row.
This highly anticipated fantasy drama series is set to debut August 30th exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories worldwide. It stars Orlando Bloom, who we all remember from the Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean franchises as well as Cara Delevingne who played Enchantress in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. The series is set in a Victorian fantasy that is filled with mythological immigrant creatures that have been forced out of their homes thanks to the invasion of man.

As you can see there is a lot of tension between creatures and humans. Yesterday via Amazon Prime Studio we have learned that this tension will continue for at least another season as it has ordered a second season of Carnival Row ahead of it’s first season debut next month. Along with Bloom and Delevingne, Carnival Row stars, David Gyasi, Karla Crome, Indira Varma and Tamzin Merchant. This series is produced by Amazon Studios and Legendary Television. On board as executive producers are Marc Guggenheim, Rene Echevarria, Jon Amiel, Orlando Bloom and Travis Beacham.
At their activations at San Diego Comic-Con 50 I must say that Carnival Row had the best showing. Focusing our attention to the fact that there is a clear divide between humans and creatures. Not to mention the amazing job they did at immersing you in a creature filled lounge. This looks like it is going to be a very good series to watch on their streaming service.
