The streaming service is betting big on Carnival Row: the show has already been renewed for Season 2 ahead of its Season 1 premiere on 30 August.

Here’s the synopsis for the series:

Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne star in Carnival Row, a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures. Feared by humans, they are forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective and a faerie rekindle a dangerous affair. The city’s uneasy peace collapses when a string of murders reveals a monster no one could imagine.

Carnival Row was created by René Echevarria and Travis Beacham, and will be directed by Jon Amiel. The series is based on A Killing On Carnival Row by Travis Beacham.

Cara Delevingne stars as Vignette Stonemoss, a faerish refugee who flees her war-torn homeland to come to the Burgue, where she must contend with the secrets that have followed her to the new land as well as rampant human prejudice against her kind. Orlando Bloom plays Rycroft Philostrate, a police inspector investigating the murder of a faerie showgirl on Carnival Row. The series also stars David Gyasi, Tamzin Merchant, Andrew Gower, Karla Crome, Arty Froushan, Caroline Ford, Indira Varma, Jared Harris and Simon McBurney.
