Your Handy Guide to the Many Characters of AMC’s The Terror

Have you guys seen The Terror yet? It’s pretty great. It’s full of bleak, icy landscapes that will worm their way into your nightmares. There are some seriously horrifying moments of gore, if you’re into that sort of thing. It’s based on a true story. There’s a monkey.

But you know what? A few episodes into AMC’s Ridley Scott-produced thriller, I’m realizing something: it’s a little bit hard to keep track of who everyone is, where they rank on the ships, and how they feel about getting torn apart by supernatural ice bears.

If You’re Sad About Once Upon a Time Ending, You Should Watch This New Fairy-Tale Series

Ever wonder what would happen if your favorite storybook heroines crossed paths in the real world? Well, that’s exactly what happens in the series Fabled. The anthology is flipping the classic fairy-tale genre on its head by reimagining its patriarchal norms through stories about age, race, sexuality, gender, and relationships.

The first episode, “Anodyne” – which is fittingly directed by Once Upon a Time‘s Jennifer Morrison – imagines what would happen if Alice (Girls‘s Zosia Mamet) from Alice in Wonderland and Dorothy (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) from The Wizard of Oz crossed paths. Bloodlines‘s Norbert Leo Butz and The Vampire Diaries‘s Paul Wesley also star. The series will have its world premiere during the Tribeca Film Festival, but in the meantime, you can watch the first trailer above.
