AMC revealed this morning that Ridley Scott’s “The Terror” will premiere on March 26, 2018, while also sharing this eerie teaser trailer.
Starring Jared Harris (“The Crown”) and Tobias Menzies (“Outlander”), “The Terror” is set in 1847, when a Royal Naval expedition crew searching for the Northwest Passage is attacked by a mysterious predator that stalks the ships and their crew in a suspenseful and desperate game of survival.
The rest of the cast includes Ciarán Hinds (Justice League) as Sir John Franklin; Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Henry Goodsir; Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence; Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky; and Trystan Gravelle (Mr. Selfridge) as Henry Collins.
“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 (A Bigger Splash) and Soo Hugh (The Whispers) in a statement. “We are looking forward to bringing viewers into this world in March.”
The 10-episodes series, which is based on Dan Simmons’ novel, is also executive produced by David W. Zuker (The Good Wife), Alexandra Milchan (The Wolf of Wall Street), Scott Lambert (Jane Got a Gun), and Guymon Casady (Game of Thrones). It’s produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360 in association with AMC Studios.
