AMC’s anthology series “The Terror” kicked off back in 2018 and continued with second season “The Terror: Infamy” in 2019. Five years later, “The Terror” is returning to AMC.
AMC has announced today that “The Terror: Devil in Silver,” a new installment in the anthology series, is coming to AMC and AMC+ in 2025. Check out teaser art below.
The first season of the supernatural drama, based on Dan Simmons’ novel and aired in 2018, was set on the frigid decks of a Victorian Era sailing ship following a doomed course, while season two, “The Terror: Infamy,” which premiered in August 2019, centered on a malevolent, shape-shifting force that is locked up with prisoners in a Japanese internment camp.
The new season is based on Victor LaValle’s novel, The Devil in Silver.
“The Terror: Devil in Silver” tells the story of Pepper – a working class moving man, who through a combination of bad luck and a bad temper, finds himself wrongfully committed to New Hyde Psychiatric Hospital – an institution filled with the people society would rather forget. There, he must contend with patients who work against him, doctors who harbor grim secrets, and perhaps even the very Devil himself.
As Pepper navigates a hellscape where nothing is as it seems, he finds that the only path to freedom is to face down the entity which thrives on the suffering within New Hyde’s walls – but doing so may prove that the worst demons of all live inside him.
Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body, “Yellowjackets”) will direct the first two episodes.
“The Terror anthology series has already delivered to fans two unforgettable seasons of storytelling that blend real-world events and characters with a terrifying and mysterious supernatural element,” said AMC’s Dan McDermott. “The Devil in Silver offers a perfect opportunity for a new installment of this popular and critically acclaimed anthology.
“We are looking forward to once again working with Chris Cantwell, who we partnered with so successfully on Halt and Catch Fire, Victor LaValle, Karyn Kusama and this great producing team to share our version of Victor’s heralded and disturbing novel.”
