AMC recently announced a second season extension for "The Terror" with the second season to be set during World War II. It will focus on a ghost that threatens a Japanese-American community from their homes in Southern California to internment camps to the Pacific War.
"In an environment where the choice of viewers is virtually unlimited, the success of these shows is particularly significant, with characters and stories that our viewers connect with and revisit season after season," said David Madden, president of the original programming for AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. "It is a privilege to continue working with and sharing the talented creatives of these series, and we look forward to exploring the next chapter in the lives of these unique and complex characters."
