On 15 December 2017, Deadline.com announced that Andrew joined the cast of Carnival Row, an eight-part series produced by Amazon. It is set for a world-wide release on Amazon Prime on 30 August 2019.

Carnival Row is described as a fantasy-noir set in a neo-Victorian city. Mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland have gathered in the city, and tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population. The series follows the investigation into a string of unsolved murders that are eating away at whatever uneasy peace still exists. It’s slated for premiere in 2019.

(Andrew) Gower will play Ezra Spurnrose, the scion of one of the most prominent families in the Burgue. When a business deal sours he finds himself under financial straights and reluctantly agrees, at his sister Imogen’s behest, to enter into a partnership with a wealthy Puck who has moved in across the street. When he begins to suspect that Imogen is falling in love with the Puck, Ezra will stop at nothing to protect his family’s reputation.

Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne star in the series which was filmed in the Czech Republic from September 2017 until March 2018. It was created by René Echevarria and Travis Beacham.

The story is based on an unproduced filmscript by Beacham called A Killing on Carnival Row, which in 2005 made its way on to The Black List – an annual list of the best unmade scripts, chosen by Hollywood insiders.

Other scripts on that year’s list went on to become Oscar-winning films, including Juno and Little Miss Sunshine, while another script formed the basis for the Emmy-winning crime drama Dexter.
