Inspired by a true story, The Terror centers on the Royal Navy’s perilous voyage into unchartered territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, The Terror highlights all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements, but with each other.
The 10-episode series stars Jared Harris as Captain Francis Crozier, Tobias Menzies as Captain James Fitzjames, Ciarán Hinds as Sir John Franklin, Paul Ready as Dr. Henry Goodsir, Adam Nagaitis as Cornelius Hickey, Nive Nielsen as Lady Silence, Ian Hart as Thomas Blanky and and Trystan Gravelle 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,” executive producers and co-showrunners David Kajganich and Soo Hugh said in a statement. “We are looking forward to bringing viewers into this world in March.”
