Deadline is reporting that Mexican actress Cristina Rodlo has signed up for a series regular role for the upcoming second season of AMC anthology series The Terror.
The first season was inspired by the true story of the Royal Navy’s voyage to discover the Northwest Passage in 1847. Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, the season showcased how everything can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements but with each other.
The second season is set during World War II and focus on an uncanny spectre that menaces a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the interment camps to the war in the Pacific.
Cristina Rodlo (whose credits include El Vato and Miss Bala) will be playing the role of Luz, a nursing student who must make some tough decisions between her personal and professional life. This joins already cast Derek Mio.
Alexander Woo and Max Borenstein will serve as co-showrunners for season two, with Josef Kubota Wladyka directing the first episode.
