Variety reports that the ATX Television Festival in June will feature a panel for The Terror: Infamy that will include Alexander Woo and George Takei and "offer a behind-the-scenes look at the production process."

TV Guide reminds viewers that Season 2 will "be set during World War II, as a bizarre series of deaths in a Japanese-American community lead one man on a journey to confront the malevolent force responsible for it all."

Screen Rant spotlights a look at the first-released Season 2 photos, which have "revealed a proper sneak peek at the cast in their period costumes, along with the show's historical scenery."

IndieWire observes that "the photos highlight how the series, in telling a different story, looks to continue the first season’s commitment to craft," noting the show's "specific costumes and a recreation of the conditions faced by this community."

• As reported by Decider, Co-Creator Alexander Woo discusses asking George Takei to be the show's consultant, explaining, "I very much hoped George would be part of the show, but it’s a very painful experience. It’s not a given that everyone would want to dive into something as painful as this is."
