The Terror: Infamy (AMC) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 8/12/19







"The Terror: Infamy" premieres on Monday, August 12th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT with an episode titled "A Sparrow in a Swallow's Nest." In 1941, Chester Nakayama is caught between his insular Japanese American neighborhood on Terminal Island and his current all-American life. Extreme circumstances push his community and personal life to the brink, all while someone watches closely.

"The Terror: Infamy" centers on a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese American community, and a young man's journey to understand and combat the malevolent entity responsible. In addition, the series is one of the first depicting the internment of Japanese Americans on such a massive scale - complete with authentically recreated camps in scope and scale as post-WWII.

The series stars Derek Mio, Kiki Sukezane (Lost in Space), Cristina Rodlo (Miss Bala), Shingo Usami (Unbroken), Naoko Mori (Everest), Miki Ishikawa (9-1-1) and renowned actor, producer, author and activist George Takei (Star Trek), who also serves as a consultant.

"The Terror: Infamy" is an AMC Studios production produced by Scott Free, Emaj Productions and Entertainment 360. In addition to Woo and Borenstein, Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert, Guymon Casady and Jordan Sheehan also serve as executive producers.

Watched it last night. First episode was kind of slow, yet I still enjoyed it. Looking forward to the rest of the season.

Is this season based on a book at all? It still seems weird to call this The Terror despite having nothing to do with the HMS Terror or Dan Simmon’s book.

Not anything I can find reference to with Google-fu.

The trailer is tempting, but then I remember how S1 ended.
I'll pass.

This is a new standalone story from a different creative team and showrunner.

S1 was directly based on a book; this season is all original with a new showrunner.
