The new season, titled The Terror: Devil in Silver, is based on the 2012 Victor LaValle novel The Devil in Silver and will premiere six episodes in 2025.

The Terror: Devil in Silver tells the story of the yet-to-be-cast Pepper, a working class moving man who through a combination of bad luck and a bad temper finds himself wrongfully committed to New Hyde Psychiatric Hospital — an institution filled with the people society would rather forget. There, Pepper must contend with patients who work against him, doctors who harbor grim secrets, and perhaps even the very Devil himself.

As Pepper navigates a hellscape where nothing is as it seems, he finds that the only path to freedom is to face down the entity which thrives on the suffering within New Hyde’s walls – but doing so may prove that the worst demons of all live inside him.

Chris Cantwell (Halt and Catch Fire) and LaValle will serve as writing executive producers. Emmy-nominated director Karyn Kusama (Yellowjackets) is also on board as an executive producer and will direct the first two episodes.

In a statement, Cantwell said, “This series is at once a grounded and real story of a man encountering those forgotten by the world and those he has neglected himself, all while arriving at a life-or-death crossroads where he must face the Devil without and within… and what does victory look like in a world of broken systems, and preyed upon people? What kind of hero is needed? I am thrilled to be returning to AMC and honored to be working with a writer like Victor. We are looking forward to scaring the living daylights out of all of you very soon.”

Added LaVella: “Devil in Silver is a horror story based on all I’ve seen and also a love letter to the resilience of the human spirit. I feel so lucky that Christopher Cantwell agreed to help me tell this story. His gifts for empathy, humor and tragedy have only enriched this tale of ours. Plus, when we get together, we come up with some pretty twisted thrills. AMC is the perfect home for our show and they’ve been such enthusiastic partners in its development.”
