AMC Renews Horror Anthology ‘The Terror’ for Season 2

Ten new Episodes Ordered for 2019

AMC has greenlit horror anthology series “The Terror” for a second season, with an order for 10 new episodes. Debuting on March 25, 2018, the first iteration of “The Terror” (based on the novel of the same name by Dan Simmons) told a self-contained story about the doomed crews of the HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, two ships which disappeared while searching for the Northwest Passage in the 1800s.

Season 2 of the anthology will be “set during World War II and center on an uncanny specter that menaces a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the internment camps to the war in the Pacific.”

The Terror’s second season is co-created and executive produced by Alexander Woo (“True Blood”) and Max Borenstein (“Kong: Skull Island,” “Godzilla”), with Woo serving as showrunner.
