AMC has announced its new premiere schedule for the summer, featuring the second seasons of surreal beachside series Lodge 49 and hit horror anthology show The Terror -- this time titled The Terror: Infamy.
Both shows will return to the cable network this August for their sophomore runs, and we can expect some major changes ahead for The Terror. Unlike the first season, which centered on Captain Sir John Franklin's (Ciarán Hinds) fateful voyage to the Arctic in the mid-19th century, Infamy will be set during World War II, as a bizarre series of deaths in a Japanese-American community lead one man on a journey to confront the malevolent force responsible for it all.
The new season will star Derek Mio as Chester Nakayama; Kiki Sukezane as Yuko, a woman from his past; Cristina Rodlo as his secret girlfriend, Luz; Shingo Usami as Chester's father, Henry; Naoko Mori as his mother, Asako Nakayama; Miki Ishikawa as a family friend named Amy; and George Takei as a community elder, Yamato-san.
Meanwhile, Lodge 49 will pick back up with Sean "Dud" Dudley (Wyatt Russell). As the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx is suffering under its new leadership, Dud must step up to restore the fraternal order to its former glory.
The Terror: Infamy will premiere on Monday, Aug. 12 at 9/8c on AMC, followed by Lodge 49 Season 2 at 10/9c.
