According to this source, AMC is working on an all new tv show with a supernatural twist, following in The Walking Dead's footsteps. The Terror follows an expedition in 1845 led by Captain Sir John Franklin, on the ships Erebus and Terror to find the Northwest Passage in the Arctic, and find their way through. Based on the actual disappearance of the real crew during that time period, the novel (and show) introduces the supernatural element of a monster called a Tuunbaq, who stalks the expedition and terrorizes them. But true to how The Walking Dead is more about the characters than the zombies, so too does The Terror seem to be more about the men on the expedition than the monster. They are plagued by scurvy, starvation, mutiny and cannibalism as much as the monster. Sounds to me like a show worth checking out. Very interested.
