The anthology drama will return for Season 2.
June 22, 2018
AMC announced today that The Terror will be returning for a second season. The good news follows a solid debut outing this past spring that garnered critical acclaim and healthy viewership.
The show is the cable network's first to follow an anthology format, where each new season focuses on a contained story in a new setting with a different cast. While its first season followed the perilous voyage of the British Royal Navy in the 1800s, Season 2 will take place during World War II, this time following a mysterious specter that terrorize a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the internment camps to the war in the Pacific.
AMC has ordered another 10 episodes for Season 2 of The Terror, which will return in 2019.

Loved this show, and was sorry to see it end. Hoping for more next season. The acting and story were great, even if license was taken with the truth. It used an Inuit belief in spirit animals. So sad that they did die from the way the food was canned. Looking forward to more next season!

I was really interested in this show when it was first announced. As a fan of historical dramas I found the premise of a series based on the doomed Franklin Expedition exciting. But come on, a mythical polar bear of inuit vengence. Was that really necessary to tell a compelling story? There was so much to this story that would make for a very compelling drama. Did they really have to go "there"? Also I just assumed the show was named after the name of the ship (HMS Terror), now its suddenly a horror anthology with a new story each season. Who writes this stuff?

I wanted to like this show. The actors were good, the costumes and sets were good; it was just so damn slow.

I can see why people would not have like the first season, because it was quite dark. I, however, really enjoyed it and am happy to hear they will be doing a second season.

Worst show ever. Silly make-believe monsters, cannibalism, and a pace that even makes watching paint dry exciting. I'd rather be waterboarded than tune in for another season.

I watched parts of a couple episodes and it looked like a good cast and production. However, I knew I didn’t want to watch it because I’ve seen probably three documentaries about the real tragedy over the years. The story involves being trapped and lost in the frozen perfect Artic storm sea, slowly and insanely dying of lead poisoning. Just freezing to death would have been too much for me. The story is about everything that can go wrong with all men and no good parts. Just being seasick would, if they were ever so lucky, would be as good as it gets. Rather, season 2 in WW ll terror couldn’t possibly get any worse. I only wish someone who watched would give a full review, and also let us know how it isn’t depressing

Brilliant news. The first season was amazing!

This was a interesting (horror series) take on a real tragedy. The real tragedy was caused by lead in the food containers They all went insane and died of exposure. But the next season should be also well worth seeing.
