The next season of The Terror, titled The Terror: Infamy, will kick off its 10 episode-run on August 12. The second season is set during World War II, which centers on a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese-American community, and a young man’s journey to understand and combat the malevolent entity responsible. This season will star Derek Mio as Chester Nakayama, alongside Kiki Sukezane (Lost in Space), Cristina Rodlo (Miss Bala), Shingo Usami (Unbroken), Naoko Mori (Everest), Miki Ishikawa (9-1-1), and renowned actor, producer, author and activist George Takei (Star Trek) as a community elder and former fishing captain.
Season two of The Terror anthology series is co-created and executive produced by Alexander Woo (True Blood) and Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla), from an idea by Borenstein. Woo, who is currently in an overall development deal with AMC, serves as showrunner. The series is an AMC Studios production produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360. The Terror is also executive produced by Ridley Scott, Dan Simmons, David W. Zucker, Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert and Guymon Casady.
Season one of The Terror was the number two new drama on cable for the current television season and a top 10 drama on ad-supported cable overall, well-received by critics and audiences alike. The first season of The Terror was inspired by a true story about the Royal Navy’s perilous voyage in 1847 while attempting to discover the Northwest Passage. Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, The Terror season one highlighted all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements but with each other.
The series is distributed internationally by AMC Studios and premieres across AMC Global markets as well as in certain Amazon Prime Video territories. The Terror Season 2 is executive produced by Ridley Scott and is an AMC Studios production, produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360.
The Terror season two will premiere Monday, August 12 on AMC.
