Dan Simmons’ British Fantasy Award-nominated novel The Terror sails onto the small screen this spring on AMC.
If the series holds true to the novel, it will likely appeal to history buffs as well as fans of horror and fantasy. Simmons’ richly detailed book relies heavily on meticulous research about the real-life members of the Franklin expedition. But where history has no answers — what happened to the 129 members of the expedition after Terror and Erebus were entombed in ice? — vivid, chilling fantasy takes over.
AMC’s The Terror is executive produced by Ridley Scott. It stars Jared Harris as Terror‘s alcoholic Captain Sir Francis Crozier; Tobias Menzies as Erebus‘ Captain James Fitzjames; and Ciarán Hinds as Sir John Franklin himself. The series is set to premiere March 2018, which leaves plenty of time to re-read the book.
