Produced by Ridley Scott, AMC is set to bring a new nightmare to viewers with The Terror, based on a true story.
The series tells the story of the real life Franklin Expedition, which attempted to forge a route through the Northwest Passage. The passage was a route European explorers hoped to use in order to travel from the Northern Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean through Arctic Ocean. Two ships, the HMS Erebus and the HMS Terror find themselves trapped in the ice with no way to escape.
With morale waning and provisions low, the men venture out to find a way to escape the ice and not only encounter the brutal conditions of the arctic, but are being hunted by something unseen. The trailer showcases the brutal conditions these men endured and the series looks like an interesting drama.
The Terror stars Ciaran Hinds, Jared Harris, Tobias Menzies, Paul Ready, Adam Nagaitis, Edward Ashley and Matthew McNulty.
The Terror is set to premiere Monday, March 26th on AMC.
