George Takei stars in series filmed in Steveston

The show tackles the horrors of Japanese internment camps

American Movie Classics (AMC) has released a batch of teaser photos for season two of The Terror, a historic anthology series starring Star Trek icon George Takei  that was filmed in Richmond.

Filming took place at the Britannia Shipyards this winter, when the historic site was temporarily closed to be transformed to depict a 1940s Japanese internment camp near Los Angeles.

This week the network released a first look at the upcoming season.

Takei plays Nobuhiro Yamato, and is pictured holding firewood and wearing a toque and jacket. He worked as a consultant for the show, advising producers on how to depict the internment camp based on his own experience being imprisoned as a child after the outbreak of World War II.

The season centres around bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese-American community, according to the show’s website. It premieres Aug. 12.

The first season told the story of the British Royal Navy’s perilous journey to discover the Northwest Passage.

The series is executive produced by Ridley Scott, the the man behind hit films like Alien, Gladiator and Blade Runner.
