I loved the first trailer that was released for Ridley Scott's upcoming new series The Terror. Now today we've got another great trailer for you to watch that is sure to get you even more excited about what this show will offer! It's loaded with new footage and also offers us more details on the nightmarish story.
The Terror is set in the 1840s and if revolves around the terrifying story of two ships from the Royal Navy who are not only forced to survive the treacherous conditions of the Arctic, but they are also being hunted by an unseen terror in the night.
The series is based on the novel by Dan Simmons’ which was inspired by the true story of Captain Sir John Franklin’s lost expedition of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror to the Arctic in 1845–1848. This is a fictionalized version of the story and it looks like it's going to be an awesome series! Here's the synopsis:
Inspired by a true story, The Terror centers on 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.
Executive producers and co-showrunners David Kajganich and Soo Hugh previously had this to say about the series:
“The Terror captures a rare combination of fascinating history, complex and flawed characters, the inextinguishable human spirit and the horror and promise of an uncharted world. We are looking forward to bringing viewers into this world in March.”
The ten-episode show also has an amazing cast that include Jared Harris (The Crown, Mad Men) as Captain Francis Crozier; Tobias Menzies (Outlander) as Captain James Fitzjames; Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Sir John Franklin; Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Henry Goodsir; Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey; Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence; Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky; and Trystan Gravelle (Mr. Selfridge) as Henry Collins.
The Terror will premiere with a special two-hour debut on Monday, March 26th. I can't wait!
