AMC has announced the debut date for the arctic horror story The Terror, based on the Dan Simmons’ novel of the same name. The Terror comes from executive producers Ridley Scott, David Kajganich and Soo Hugh and will open with a two-hour premiere on Monday March 26th at 9:00 p.m.
According to the official press release, the story was inspired by true events and follows “…the Royal Navy’s perilous voyage into unchartered territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, The Terror highlights all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements, but with each other.”
