We’re heading out of the Arctic and back to World War II for the second season of AMC’s “The Terror,“ with the network officially ordering a second season back in June. Deadline reports today that actress Cristina Rodlo is the first to join the season’s cast as a series regular.
Rodlo will play Luz, a nursing student who must make some tough decisions between her personal and professional life.
Josef Kubota Wladyka (“Narcos”) will direct the first episode.
The next iteration of “The Terror” 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.
Season two of “The Terror” anthology is co-created and executive produced by Alexander Woo (“True Blood”) and Max Borenstein (“Kong: Skull Island,” “Godzilla”). Woo is also set to serve as showrunner. The next season of “The Terror” anthology is expected to air on AMC in 2019 with 10 episodes.
“I’m deeply honored to be telling a story set in this extraordinary period,” said Woo. “We hope to convey the abject terror of the historical experience in a way that feels modern and relevant to the present moment. And the prospect of doing so with a majority Asian and Asian-American cast is both thrilling and humbling.”
“The Terror” season two is executive produced by Ridley Scott and is an AMC Studios production, produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360.
