One of the highlights of my SDCC experience last month was to receive an invitation to attend the press conference and panel celebrating the AMC Network’s upcoming season of their anthology series, The Terror.

The Terror was optioned for television from the 2007 novel by Dan Simmons. The first season on AMC was wholly adapted from the original novel, which followed a British ship crew trapped in the ice on an expedition searching for the famed Northwest Passage. There is…something…chasing the crew across the ice, lending a horror genre to the series.

Season 2 premieres Monday, August 12th. I had the chance to see the first several minutes of the first episode during the cast and crew panel at SDCC.
