The Terror - Season 2 - Derek Mio to Star in AMC Anthology



Derek Mio (Hawaii Five-0, Greek) has been cast to star in Season 2 of AMC's horror anthology, The Terror, per Deadline.

Co-created by Alexander Woo (True Blood) and Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island) with Woo set as showrunner on the second season of The Terror, the new installment is set during World War II and centers on an uncanny specter (ghost, apparition, spirit) that menaces a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the internment camps to the war in the Pacific.

Mio will play Chester Nakayama, the son of Japanese born immigrants who dreams of leaving his insular Japanese-American community and joining the army. Throughout the 10-episode season, Nakayama evolves from a naïve kid into a war hero.


"I'm deeply honored to be telling a story set in this extraordinary period," said Woo. "We hope to convey the abject terror of the historical experience in a way that feels modern and relevant to the present moment. And the prospect of doing so with a majority Asian and Asian-American cast is both thrilling and humbling."

"As a history-buff and genre geek (not to mention a conscious American today), it's clear that truth is always scarier than fiction," said Borenstein. "This season of 'The Terror' uses as its setting one of the darkest, most horrific moments in our nation's history. The Japanese-American internment is a blemish on the nation's conscience - and one with dire resonance to current events. I'm thrilled that AMC is giving us the chance to use that DARKNESS as the inspiration for what I hope will be a trenchant, terrifying season of TV."
