AMC has announced an August premiere date for season 2 of its horror drama television series The Terror. Due to the show’s initial success since its debut in early 2018, AMC has decided to expand the series into a horror anthology series.
Season 1 of The Terror was based on the true story of a British Royal Navy’s perilous voyage as they attempt to discover the Northwest Passage in unchartered territory. For the second season, AMC plans to take the series on a different course. AMC provided the following description:
“Set during World War II, the haunting and suspenseful, second season of the horror-infused anthology, The Terror: Infamy, 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.”
AMC has revealed the following first-look photos from season 2:
Under the new title The Terror: Infamy, season 2 will star Derek Mio as Chester Nakayama; Kiki Sukezane as Yuko, a mysterious woman from Chester’s past; Cristina Rodlo as Luz, Chester’s secret girlfriend; Shingo Usami as Henry Nakayama, Chester’s father; Naoko Mori as Asako Nakayama, Chester’s mother; Miki Ishikawa as Amy, a Nakayama family friend; and renowned actor, producer, author and activist George Takei as Yamato-san, a community elder and former fishing captain.
The Terror: Infamy will premiere on AMC Monday, August 12 at 9:00 p.m.
