AMC's new series The Terror, based on Dan Simmons' historical horror novel of the same name, will have a two-hour series premiere on Monday, March 26 at 9 p.m.

The networked have released a fresh trailer which gives us a much better sense of the show than the teaser.

The men on board HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. When the expedition's leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a terrible death, Captain Francis Crozier takes command and leads his surviving crewmen on a last, desperate attempt to flee south across the ice.

But as another winter approaches, as scurvy and starvation grow more terrible, and as the Terror on the ice stalks them southward, Crozier and his men begin to fear there is no escape. A haunting, gripping story based on actual historical events, The Terror is a novel that will chill you to your core.

The ten-episode series features an crazy good cast in Jared Harris (Mad Men) as Captain Francis Crozier, captain of "The Terror"; Tobias Menzies (Outlander) as Captain James Fitzjames, captain of the "Erebus"; Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Sir John Franklin, leader of the expedition; Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Henry Goodsir, one of the four doctors who was part of the expedition; Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey, a mate with an axe to grind; Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence, a mysterious Inuit woman who encounters the ships trapped in the ice; Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky, an ice master; and Trystan Gravelle (Mr. Selfridge) as Henry Collins.

Can't wait for this one!
