The BBC acquires AMC's THE TERROR

The BBC has acquired AMC's TV series The Terror for UK distribution after a surprisingly long wait.

The Terror is an anthology series revolving around unusual stories involving possible supernatural causes in a historical setting. The first season adapted Dan Simmons' novel The Terror, based around the infamous Franklin Expedition to find the Northwest Passage, resulting in the loss of the icebreaker ships HMS Erebus and Terror, whilst the second is based on an original story called Infamy and is set in a Japanese internment camp in California in World War II.

The first season, starring Ciaran Hinds, Jared Harris, Greta Scacchi and Tobias Menzies, aired in the spring of 2018, making it an unusually long wait for the show to be available on a UK broadcaster.

The BBC has not yet set a date for the series, but have noted noted it will be broadcast on BBC2 and will also be available on the BBC iPlayer.
