With “The Walking Dead” pulling in INSANE ratings it makes total sense that AMC is looking to expand its horror slate. And I’m hopeful that “The Terror” will be a much stronger outing than “Walking Dead”, which is still only “so-so” in my book.
“The Terror” series will be an adaptation of the 2007 bestselling novel by Dan Simmons. I haven’t read the book, but the synopsis piques my interest. It’s “is set in 1847 when the crew of a Royal Naval expedition to find the Arctic’s treacherous Northwest Passage discovers instead a monstrous predator – a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival, the consequences of which could endanger the region and its native people forever.”
It’s being written by David Kajganich, who is also adapting the feature film version of The Stand for Warner Bros. he will executive produce along with Ridley (and formerly Tony) Scott’s Scott Free TV, Television 360, and Alexandra Milchan.
No air date has been set, and that probably won’t change for quite a while.
