The trailer shows the pair back to back as Delevingne’s character flutters her wings.

Bloom, wearing a bowler hat, says: “Time is running out. Something inhuman approaches.”

Delevingne adds: “There is a rift in the city. We must all come together.”

The eight-part Amazon Prime original show, set in a neo-Victorian city, will see a world of mythical creatures attempt to flee from the horrors of their past.

Bloom’s character is tasked with investigating the murder of a showgirl, while Delevingne’s is leaving her home world to face human prejudice.

The show is due to premiere on August 30.
