The First Trailer Is Out for AMC’s The Terror: Infamy

The Terror is back. On Thursday morning, AMC released the first trailer for season two of its critically acclaimed horror anthology series. Subtitled Infamy, this season takes viewers from Captain Sir John Franklin’s doomed excursion to the Arctic to a much more recent, horrific, and timely part of history: the U.S.’s internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

The trailer opens with Franklin Roosevelt’s address to Congress about the bombing of Pearl Harbor, before quickly shifting to the indignities and atrocities suffered by Japanese-Americans as U.S. troops forcibly relocate them to concentration camps. Although the minute-long clip focuses on real-life horror, it also gives viewers a glimpse of this season’s supernatural element. Where season one featured Tuunbaq, a spirit wearing the skin of a monstrous polar bear, The Terror: Infamy features bakemono, shape-shifting Japanese spirits.

According to Indiewire, this is the official synopsis: “Set during World War II, the haunting and suspenseful second season of the horror-infused anthology, ‘The Terror: Infamy,’ centers on a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese-American community, and a young man’s journey to understand and combat the malevolent entity responsible.”

The Terror: Infamy stars Derek Mio as Chester Nakayama, Naoko Mori as Asako Nakayama, George Takei as Yamato-san, and will premiere August 12.
