Plot Synopsis

Inspired by a true story, THE TERROR centers on the British Royal Navy's perilous voyage into unchartered territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage in 1845. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, this series highlights all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements, but with each other. Cold, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, the seamen also face a mysterious threat by something out in the frigid darkness, stalking their ship, snatching one man at a time and leaving bodies mangled or missing.

The real expedition led to more than 120 crew members inexplicably disappearing, warranting a great deal of speculation ever since. Their fate is one of the enduring mysteries of the age of exploration. Following two-centuries of searching, coincidentally, the ships were discovered by arctic research groups in 2014 and 2016.
