In anticipation of the haunting new drama, The Terror, AMC brought a multi sensory event to fans at Wondercon in Anaheim. The experience brought guests onto a small vessel where “Passengers” were transported to the ill-fated 1845 expedition in the violent and desolate polar landscape. The ship’s crew encountered the treacherous cold, uninhabitable conditions and an unknown creature stalking them at every turn. Guests felt the bone chilling air and heard the cries of the ship’s crew fighting to survive the insurmountable odds. So what becomes of the Royal British Navy crew on this cursed voyage? You’ll have to tune in on Monday, March 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT to begin the journey. From executive producers Ridley Scott, David Kajganich, and Soo Hugh, the harrowing story begins with a two-hour series premiere on Monday, March 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
The ten-episode series stars 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. Harry Goodsir, Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey, Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence and Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky.

Inspired by a true story, The Terror centers on the British 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.
