AMC has renewed its supernatural anthology series The Terror for season 3 – and this time, we’re heading for a possibly haunted psychiatric hospital. Jolly. 

The first two series of The Terror are spine-chilling, superbly creepy thrillers, and it’s with great pleasure that we’re able to report that the show’s returning with another hair-raising story. 

Deadline reports that The Terror has been renewed for season three by AMC, with the new series will based on Victor LaValle’s novel The Devil in Silver. LaValle will also write the new series of The Terror with Chris Cantwell. 

If the name LaValle rings a bell, that would be for a good reason. His novel The Changeling was recently adapted into a compelling, thrilling AppleTV+ series of the same name, starring LaKeith Stanfield. 

The Devil In Silver follows a man named Pepper, who finds himself committed to New Hyde Psychiatric Hospital. It’s an inhospitable place, and might just harbour the Devil itself. But if Pepper wants to free himself, he must not only face the entity feeding off the suffering in the hospital, but also his own demons. 

Jennifer’s Body and The Invitation director Karyn Kusama is set to direct the first two episodes of the new series. She’s also on board as an executive producer alongside LaValle. 

Season one of The Terror starred Tobias Menzies, Jared Harris and Ciarán Hinds in a story set on a frozen ship haunted by a mysterious entity in the 1840s. It was based on a 2017 novel by Dan Simmons, while season two took place during World War II. 

In the UK, both seasons of The Terror aired on AMC originally, but BBC Two picked up the acclaimed series later on in 2021, three years after the first season aired on AMC. 

The Terror: The Devil In Silver is expected to air sometime in 2025. No casting news for this one yet, but we expect to hear those soon.
