It’s hard to imagine any kind of AMC horror that doesn’t involve walking corpses these days, but Ridley Scott and David Kajganich may at last succeed in changing that. AMC has officially given a 2017 series order to The Terror, based on the Dan Simmons novel of an arctic monster chasing 1847 sailors.
AMC will very likely have some holes in its schedule to fill over the next few years, what with 'Breaking Bad' coming to a close this summer and 'Mad Men' due to end after its seventh season. And with the phenomenal success of 'The Walking Dead,' the network seems to have the foothold its needs for making major steps in genre programming. Along that line, AMC has begun development of an adaptation of Dan Simmons' supernatural period piece 'The Terror,' with horror legend Ridley Scott in the executive producer's chair, but will 'The Terror' really live up to its name?
