A few years after the first season of The Terror, BBC Two and AMC + invite us to a new dangerous and violent voyage in the Arctic with The North Water, which will be broadcast from July 15 on the American platform (there is no date on the English side yet).
Andrew Haigh is currently adapting his own novel, published in France under the title (Dans Les Eaux du Grand Nord). The story follows Patrick Sumner (Jack O’Connell), a former British Army surgeon with a bad reputation, who has a no better option than to board the Volunteer, a Yorkshire whaler en route to the rich waters of the Far North.
But while he hopes to find some respite on board, a cabin boy is discovered brutally murdered. Trapped in the belly of the ship, Sumner encounters pure evil in Henry Drax (Colin Farrell), a brutal and bloodthirsty harpooner. As the true objectives of the expedition unfold, the confrontation between the two will be played out in the darkness and freezing cold of the arctic winter.
Consisting of a total of 4 episodes, The North Water, therefore, stars Jack O’Connell and Colin Farrell, but also Stephen Graham, Tom Courtenay, Peter Mullan, Sam Spruell, and Roland Møller.
