AMC will welcome Star Trek actor George Takei to the second season of its anthology series The Terror, the network said Tuesday.
Takei will serve as consultant and series regular for The Terror, which stars Derek Mio.
Additional casting includes Kiki Sukezane (Lost in Space), Miki Ishikawa (9-1-1), Shingo Usami (Unbroken) and Naoko Mori (Everest). The sophomore season of the series will debut on AMC next year with 10 episodes, said network officials.
The Terror will focus on a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese-American community, and a young man's journey to understand and combat the entity responsible, said the network.
Season two of the series is co-created and executive produced by Alexander Woo (True Blood) and Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla). Ridley Scott, Dan Simmons, David W. Zucker, Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert and Guymon Casady also serve as executive producers.
