The scariest part of The Terror: Infamy is its truth. The second season of AMC's supernatural anthology series, weaving horror with history, hits hard because it is painfully timely. Premiering Monday, Aug. 12, the show reminds us what happens when xenophobia triumphs. Set during World War II, it doesn’t hold back in its depiction of the treatment of Japanese Americans interned on FDR's executive order after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Some of Infamy was shot in the actual horse stables where families were forced to live. Among those people was five-year-old George Takei, who plays an elder on the series and is a consultant on the 10-episode show.
