AMC dropped a teaser and first-look photos of upcoming historical thriller The Terror that follows the crew of a Royal Naval expedition who are searching for the Arctic’s Northwest Passage, and discover a monstrous predator.
AMC also revealed plans for two-hour season premiere on March 26 at 9 p.m. for the 10-episode first season.
The series from executive producers Ridley Scott, David Kajganich and Soo Hugh is inspired by a true story and adapted from the novel by Dan Simmons.
“Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction,” according to the synopsis from AMC. “Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, The Terror highlights all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements, but with each other.”
Stars include Jared Harris (The Crown), Tobias Menzies (Outlander), and Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones)
“The Terror captures a rare combination of fascinating history, complex and flawed characters, the inextinguishable human spirit and the horror and promise of an uncharted world,” Kajganich and Hugh told Entertainment Weekly. “We are looking forward to bringing viewers into this world in March.”
