C. Thomas Howell joins The Terror season 2

From early roles in such classics as ET, THE OUTSIDERS, RED DAWN, and THE HITCHER, C. Thomas Howell has mostly been forgotten since. But that may all be changing here soon as Howell has just snagged a recurring role on Season 2 of AMC’s THE TERROR. Howell portrays Retired Major Hallowell Bowen, an official with the War Relocation Authority whose presence looms over the Japanese-American characters in the story.

Season 2 will be set during World War II and center on

An uncanny specter that menaces a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the internment camps to the war in the Pacific.

Howell will be joing a cast that currently includes Cristina Rodlo as Luz, "a nursing student who must make some tough decisions between her personal and professional life"; Derek Mio as Chester Nakayama, "a young man trying to understand and fight the malevolent entity responsible for a series of bizarre deaths in his community"; Kiki Sukezane as Yuko, a mysterious woman from Chester's past; Miki Ishikawa is Nakayama family friend Amy; Shingo Usami is Chester's father Henry; Naoko Mori will be playing Chester's mother Asako; and George Takei - yes THAT George Takei - as Yamato-san, a former fishing captain and community elder.

Co-created by Alexander Woo (True Blood) and Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), The Terror is produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360, with Woo, Borenstein, and Simmons executive producing alongside Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert, and Guymon Casady. Production on season 2 will begin in January, with Josef Kubota Wladyka directing the first two of its ten episodes.
