What to Expect from Carnival Row Season 2?
In the upcoming season, Philo will investigate a series of murders that have created tensions between humans and the fae. Vignette will be partnering with the Black Raven vigilante group to avenge their oppression by John Breakspear and Sophie Longerbane, the Burgue’s human leaders.
Meanwhile, Imogen and Agreus will discover a new society, and Tourmaline will get some supernatural powers. Prime Video unveiled a trailer for the season last month, which teases the adventures that await the heroes and villains. Check out the trailer below.
Who will Star in Carnival Row Season 2?
The season will star Orlando Bloom as Rycroft ‘Philo’ Philostrate, Cara Delevingne as Vignette Stonemoss, Simon McBurney as Runyon Millworthy, David Gyasi as Agreus Astrayon, Tamzin Merchant as Imogen Spurnrose, Andrew Gower as Ezra Spurnrose, Karla Crome as Tourmaline Larou, and Arty Froushan as Jonah Breakspear.
Talking about his character, Bloom said in an interview, “Philo is willing to do whatever it takes. It’s one of the things that I love about the character. He’s prepared to do whatever it takes to do the right thing because he’s lived with this lie for so long.”
“And he’s got so much guilt and shame around it that it fuels him to take responsibility for a whole host of people that other people might just ask, Why are you doing that? He feels this sense of responsibility because of his past and because of his history,” he added.
