According to the usual suspectsGeorge Takei is joining the series for the second season, which will center on the Japanese-American community during World War II. This is a subject Takei is well-versed in, having lived in an internment camp as a young boy.

Takei will not only play "Yamato-san, a former fishing captain and community elder," but he will also serve as a consultant, owing to his personal experiences.

AMC has described season 2 of The Terror as "centering on an uncanny specter that menaces a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the internment camps to the war in the Pacific."

Season 2 will reportedly also be 10 episodes, and filming is expected to begin in January of 2019 in Vancouver.
