AMC announced today that a third installment of The Terror is on the way. It has been over four years since the horror anthology series was last on the air.

The show premiered in 2018 as the cable network's first series to follow an anthology format, where each new season focuses on a contained story in a new setting with a different cast. Its first season followed the perilous voyage of the British Royal Navy in the 1800s, and Season 2 took place during World War II, 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.

The upcoming season, targeting a 2025 release, will be called 'The Terror: Devil in Silver' and consist of six episodes. It will tell the story of Pepper - a working class moving man, who through a combination of bad luck and a bad temper, finds himself wrongfully committed to New Hyde Psychiatric Hospital - an institution filled with the people society would rather forget. There, he must contend with patients who work against him, doctors who harbor grim secrets, and perhaps even the very Devil himself. As Pepper navigates a hellscape where nothing is as it seems, he finds that the only path to freedom is to face down the entity which thrives on the suffering within New Hyde's walls - but doing so may prove that the worst demons of all live inside him.

"The Terror anthology series has already delivered to fans two unforgettable seasons of storytelling that blend real-world events and characters with a terrifying and mysterious supernatural element," said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks. "The Devil in Silver offers a perfect opportunity for a new installment of this popular and critically acclaimed anthology. We are looking forward to once again working with Chris Cantwell, who we partnered with so successfully on Halt and Catch Fire, Victor LaValle, Karyn Kusama and this great producing team to share our version of Victor's heralded and disturbing novel."
