Why Carnival Row is the ideal fantasy series replacement after Amazon’s Lord of the Rings

What’s Carnival Row about in a nutshell? Many supernatural creatures (including fauns, fairies, werewolves and more) have escaped from their war-torn hometown of Tirnanoc. the escaped mythical creatures are treated like outsiders and underclass creatures in the human city of The Burgue. In the midst of this conflict, Police Inspector Rycroft Philostrate (Orlando Bloom) investigates a supernatural murder series and meets his ex-lover: the fairy Vignette (Cara Delevingne).

When it launched in fall 2019, Amazon’s Carnival Row went under a bit (perhaps because it was first released in English and much later in German). The subsequent long break of more than three years did the rest to let the successful fantasy series fall into oblivion. But now, just in time for The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power, she’s back with her 2nd season to take part in a fantastic story and compelling characters to connect What no fantasy fan should miss.

In particular, Lord of the Rings fans who are looking for a successful fantasy series after The Rings of Power will get their money’s worth here. And not just because of Orlando ‘Legolas’ Bloom as the main actor. Carnival Row offers one in particular enchantingly detailed fantasy world

with its own continent map and its own creature vocabulary. Particularly nice: This even works without a book template in which we could read about the amazing twists beforehand.

Instead of wanting to copy the Middle-earth approach to a profound world (like Amazon’s The Wheel of Time recently), Carnival Row creates its own, at times quite dark realm, where magic and progress clash. No one would think of comparing the stealthy Jack the Ripper-like killer to Sauron, or the industrial fantasy city to the Shire. Still, the series manages the Lord of the Rings feat of a fantasy tale with substance, where we take part when a nouveau riche, horned faun (David Gyasi) fights against the prejudices of the upper class and inter-species friendships and love stories open the gates for open more acceptance.
