For February 2023, Prime Video Australia will have a plethora of brand new offerings for its subscribers. There is the conclusion of old favourites like Star Trek: Picard, the second and final season of Carnival Row and new series The Consultant and The Estate.
Season 2 available from Friday 17 February 2023.
The second and final season of Carnival Row follows former investigator Rycroft Philostrate a.k.a. Philo (Orlando Bloom) as he investigates a string of grisly murders that are fuelling societal tension in a fantasy world where humans and animals conflict. Stonemoss (Cara Delevingne) and the Black Raven (Arty Froushan) and Sophie Longerbane (Caroline Ford) plot revenge for the unfair persecution meted out by the human authorities of The Burgue.
Tourmaline (Karla Crome) gets some supernatural abilities that could be bad for her and the rest of The Row. Imogen Spurnrose (Tamzin Merchant) and her partner Agreus Astrayon (David Gyasi) flee The Burgue and her spiteful brother Ezra (Andrew Gower), only to run into a radical new civilization that throws a wrench into their plans. With freedom at stake and the human and fae communities at odds, the epic conclusion to Carnival Row will put our heroes through tests of character that will define them forever.
Carnival Row Season Two stars Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Arty Froushan, Caroline Ford, Karla Crome, Andrew Gower, Tamzin Merchant and David Gyasi.

But the rumours about Hilda’s supposed wealth as she lay in her grave are the talk of the town.
