Carnivale HomeSeason 1Season 2

1934. The dust bowl. The last great age of magic. In a time of titanic sandstorms, drought and pestilence – all signs of God’s fury and harbingers of the apocalypse – the final conflict between good and evil is about to begin. The battle will take place in the heartland of an empire called America. And when it is over, man will forever trade away wonder for reason.

CARNIVÀLE follows a travelling carnival as it wends its way across the dust bowl, focusing on a mysterious young fugitive with hidden talents who is taken in by the carnival, and on the charismatic, shadowy evangelist who will ultimately cross his path. The 12-episode dramatic series takes place at a time of worldwide unrest, with evil on the rise around the globe and the Great Depression wreaking economic and social havoc.

As they become aware of their abilities, Ben and Brother Justin find themselves wrenched from their lives to realize that the world they thought they knew — this tenuous, prosaic reality shared by humankind — is actually a chessboard upon which is played the ancient conflict between light and darkness, and they are key players in the battle.
