Yuki Morita has booked a role which will film in the new year on Episode #201 of AMC’s The Terror.
AMC has announced that the network’s critically acclaimed first anthology series, The Terror, has been renewed. A 10-episode second season is slated to air in 2019.
The American horror drama televisi
on series premiered on AMC on March 25, 2018. The series is named after Dan Simmons’ 2007 best-selling novel, a fictionalized account of Captain Sir John Franklin’s lost expedition to the Arctic in 1845–1848, which serves as the basis for the series’ first season.
The next iteration will be set during World War II and centers on an uncanny specter that menaces a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the internment camps, and to the war in the Pacific.
The second season will also once again be executive-produced by legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott. It has been co-created by Alexander Woo (True Blood) and Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla), with the duo also executive producing alongside Ridley Scott.
The second season will star George Takei (Star Trek), who also serves as a consultant on the series, and Derek Mio (Hawaii Five-0) as Chester Nakayama. Rounding out the cast are Kiki Sukezane (“Lost in Space”) as Yuko, a mysterious woman from Chester’s past; Miki Ishikawa (9-1-1) as Amy, a Nakayama family friend; Shingo Usami (Unbroken) as Henry Nakayama, Chester’s father; and Naoko Mori (Everest) as Asako Nakayama, Chester’s mother.
This season of The Terror uses as its setting one of the darkest, most horrific moments in our nation’s history. The Japanese-American internment is a blemish on the nation’s conscience — and one with dire resonance to current events.”
