British history and supernatural horror will collide when AMC's 10-episode adaptation of Dan Simmons' 2007 speculative novel, The Terror, runs aground starting March 26.
Starring Game of Thrones' Ciaran Hinds, Jared Harris, Tobias Menzies, Adam Nagaitis, and Nive Nielsen, The Terror chronicles the actual 1845-48 voyage of the HMS Terror and the HMS Erebus as they forge a frigid path to discover the Northwest Passage and end up icebound in the Arctic, stalked by a savage mythological monster.
The doomed polar expedition led by Captain Sir John Franklin must contend with inhospitable elements, a starving crew, subzero temperatures, and a bloodthirsty abominable snow creature as the creaking ice slowly strangles their hulls and hearts.
“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,” said executive producers and co-showrunners David Kajganich and Soo Hugh in a press release. “We are looking forward to bringing viewers into this world in March.”
AMC intensifies their struggle with this latest teaser, submerging you into the Royal Navy's icy nightmare. Have a look and tell us if you'll be on board when The Terror sets sail for a two-hour premiere Monday, March 26, at 9/8c.
