Colin Farrell heads to AMC+ for the upcoming drama series The North Water. Looking similar to the first season of The Terror but without the supernatural horror elements, The North Water follows the crew of a whaling ship that heads deep into the northern waters of the Arctic Ocean in search of their quarry. Farrell plays Henry Drax, a bloodthirsty harpooner who seems to have lost all sense of morality from his long years at sea killing whales while Jack O’Connell plays Patrick Sumner, a disgraced ex-Army surgeon who joins the crew as the ship’s doctor. Stephen Graham co-stars as the ship’s captain, Brownlee. It looks like a pretty brutal series as the crew has to deal with the harsh elements as well as each other and it will be a five-episode mini-series exclusively on AMC+, although there’s a chance it will arrive on regular AMC later, much like fellow AMC+ show Gangs of London. The series begins on July 15th next week and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
