AMC is currently in talks to produce a third season of the popular historical drama, The Terror. Find out what ideas they’re considering.

The Terror is one of the most underrated horror series on television right now. The historical horror show’s first season was based on the Dan Simmons novel of the same name. It focused on a Victorian-era ship embarking on a doomed expedition.

Season two of the series, The Terror: Infamy, jumped forward in time to focus on a Japanese internment camp haunted by a malevolent shape-shifting presence.

AMC has not officially renewed the series for a third team, but they’re now considering the possibility. Deadline reports that the network has been pitched some ideas by the series’s production company Scott Free.

Unfortunately, the article doesn’t indicate what ideas the writers are considering for a potential third series, but it’s not likely to take place in the modern era. AMC president Sarah Barnett spoke about her love of melding horror and history together.

She discussed enjoying the way horror serves as an excellent metaphor for complicated emotional situations, “setting it in such a heightened and particular historical moment that has great stakes.”

She went on to state that while they’re interested in producing another season, they want to ensure they don’t retread the same material.

The second season of the horror anthology series debuted last summer. The network hasn’t said officially confirmed anything about a potential season three.

It would be in AMC’s best interest to keep The Terror going, the show has attracted a rotating cast of strong talent, including Jared Harris, George Takei, Tobias Menzes, and more.
