Carnival Row Season 2 Sneak Preview: Philo's Having an Identity Crisis

With the second & final season premiering this Friday, here's a preview for Amazon's Orlando Bloom & Cara Delevingne-starring Carnival Row.

It's hard to believe that the second season of Amazon's Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne-starring alt-Victorian fantasy drama Carnival Row will finally be hitting screens tomorrow. But it's also bittersweet news, with the second season also marking the end of Philo's (Bloom) & Vignette's (Delevingne) story. And from what we've seen of the season so far, the series is definitely not going to end on a quiet note. With February 17th right around the corner, Bloom checked in with ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel – and he brought a clip with him. And while we won't spoil it with you, let's just say that Philo's having a bit of an "identity crisis."

Here's a look at Bloom and Kimmel discussing Amazon's Prime Video series, including what it was like dealing with the pandemic while filming overseas and more (with the preview clip starting at the 7:00 mark):

Carnival Row: What We Know About Season 2

In a fantasy world where humans and creatures clash, Season Two of Carnival Row picks up with former inspector Rycroft Philostrate a.k.a. Philo (Bloom), investigating a series of gruesome murders stoking social tension. Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne) and the Black Raven plot payback for the unjust oppression inflicted by The Burgue's human leaders, Jonah Breakspear (Arty Froushan) and Sophie Longerbane (Caroline Ford).
