AMC Sets Title for 2nd Season Set in Japanese Internment Camp

AMC announced yesterday that the second season of its horror anthology “The Terror” will be entitled “The Terror: Infamy,” reports The Wrap.

Set in an intermittent camp during World War II, the second season of “The Terror” will center around a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese American community, and young man Chester Nakayama’s (Derek Mio) journey to understand and combat the malevolent entity responsible.

“Star Trek” alum George Takei will appear as a series regular and consultant. Takei, who was imprisoned with his family in two Japanese American internment camps during WWII, will work closely with the executive producers to ensure the accuracy of historical events and storytelling, according to Den of Geek. On the acting side, he will play Yamato-san, a former fishing captain and community elder.

The 10-episode second season began production on January 14 in Vancouver, and is expected to premiere on AMC later this year.
