Amazon has handed out an early renewal to its upcoming fantasy drama Carnival Row. The announcement of a second season arrives more than a month ahead of the series premiere, which is set for release on August 30.

Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne star in the series, which is set in a Victorian fantasy world where mythological immigrant creatures who have fled their war-torn homeland have arrived in their city. Tensions rise between the humans and the growing creature population, which is feared and forbidden to live or fly with freedom. The fragile peace breaks down when a string of murders reveals a monster that nobody could imagine. But in darkness there lies hope, as a human detective and a faerie rekindle a dangerous affair.
