The first look at Ridley Scott’s new AMC drama is finally here.
EW can exclusively reveal the first teaser trailer and images for The Terror, which premieres March 26 at 9 p.m.
Starring Jared Harris (The Crown) and Tobias Menzies (Outlander), the suspenseful series follows the Royal Navy as it embarks on a dangerous journey into uncharted territory in order to discover the Northern Passage. How dangerous is this mission, you ask? Well, here’s a quick list of the challenges facing the crew face as they struggle to survive: treacherous conditions, limited resources, frostbite, fear of the unknown, dwindling hope, frostbite, and, probably worst all, each other.
Watch the intense teaser above, which offers a sneak peek at the aforementioned perilous quest.
Harris and Menzies play Captains Francis Crozier and James Fitzjames, respectively. The rest of the cast includes Ciarán Hinds (Justice League) as Sir John Franklin; Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Henry Goodsir; Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence; Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky; and Trystan Gravelle (Mr. Selfridge) as Henry Collins.
“The Terror captures a rare combination of fascinating history, complex and flawed characters, the inextinguishable human spirit and the horror and promise of an uncharted world,” said executive producers and co-showrunners David Kajganich (A Bigger Splash) and Soo Hugh (The Whispers) in a statement. “We are looking forward to bringing viewers into this world in March.”
The 10-episodes series, which is based on Dan Simmons’ novel, is also executive produced by David W. Zuker (The Good Wife), Alexandra Milchan (The Wolf of Wall Street), Scott Lambert (Jane Got a Gun), and Guymon Casady (Game of Thrones). It’s produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360 in association with AMC Studios.
