The Terror TV Series (2018- )

Hey everyone, Horrormadam here to tell you about a new TV series brought to us by Ridley Scott, The Terror an AMC original. The film is based on the fictionalized account of Captain Sir John Franklin’s lost expedition of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror to the Arctic, in 1845–1848 to open the Northwest Passage written by author Dan Simmons. In the novel, the captain and his brave crew fight the unforgiving elements, starvation, and sickness which leads them to cannibalism and attempts at mutiny. During their perilous journey, they also find out that they are being stalked by a monster. Set in the unforgiving arctic where they are trapped in the ice for over a year 28 miles north-northwest of King William Island they discover what terror really is.

The Terror is a 10 episode series that premieres a two-hour episode on March 26th, 2018. The Terror stars Jared Harris (Resident Evil: Apocolypse and The Final Chapter, Poltergeist, From Within and The Crown) stars as Captain Francis Crozier, Ciaran Hinds (The Woman in Black, The Rite, and Game of Thrones) stars as Sir John Franklin, Tobias Menzies (Underworld: Blood Wars, Outlander, and Game of Thrones) stars as Captain James Fitzjames, Christos Lawton (Hugo, Downton Abbey) stars as George Hodgson, Matthew McNulty (The Syndicate, Misfits) stars as Little, Adam Nagaitis (Commuter, The Man With the Iron Heart) stars as Cornelius Hickey, and Nive Nielsen (The New World) stars as Lady Silence.

IMDB provides us information on the first episode:

S1.E1 Go for Broke
Two ships, brave captains and their crews, royal marines, all battle the elements and unknown adventure while remembering home and mission beginnings.

Written by David Kajganich, Soo Hugh, Gina Welch, Andres Fischer-Centeno, Josh Parkinson, Vinnie Wilhelm, and even the author of the book Dan Simmons wrote one episode.

The show is produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions, and Entertainment 360 in association with AMC Studios.

It was filmed on Island of Pag, Croatia.

Readers, I got to tell you, this show looks amazing. Not only the storyline, the incredible actors, the lush cinematography, the harrowing and terror-filled scenes but it is also a Scott Free production teaming up with AMC who has already brought us The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men. I am extremely excited for this series, and I certainly hope you will check it out also!
