Tv Season Info

Set during World War II, the haunting and suspenseful second season of the horror-infused anthology The Terror: Infamy centers on a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese American community, and a young man's journey to understand and combat the malevolent entity responsible. The season chronicles Chester Nakayama and his friends and family from Terminal Island, California, as they face persecution from the American government and battle the evil spirit that threatens their future. The Terror: Infamy tells the often overlooked story of Japanese American internment and asks what it truly means to be an American. From 1942 to 1945, more than 145,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese Canadians were forced from their homes and into internment camps by their respective governments, simply because of where they or their ancestors were born. Their story is one of perseverance in the face of injustice.

As a historical drama, The Terror: Infamy got a lot right, and as a Japanese American, I was gratified to see this painful era captured in a production anchored by Asian Americans.

Infamy's dual sources of terror don't quite cohere into a single story. Part of the problem may lie in the writing and plotting. But the show also seems to offer different things to different viewers.

Infamy also features a wonderfully varied range of responses from the Japanese nationals and Japanese Americans in the camps.

"Infamy" is thematically rich beyond that, especially in how it navigates the old ways, the new, and the messy realities in which they collide.

August 13, 2019 | Full Review…

"The Terror" remains a thoughtful story of human nature, more haunting in its honesty than its ghosts.

Fine second season with solid horror elements, and a particularly engaging - and relevant - message.
