Tom Hiddleston will soon be a familiar face on Apple TV+. On Thursday, the streaming service green lit his limited series The White Darkness. It will be based on a real-life adventure exploring Antarctica.

The actor already filmed The Essex Serpent for Apple TV+, which is expected to debut on the streaming service this spring.

In the just-approved series, Hiddleston will play Henry Worsley, a devoted husband and father who is also deeply obsessed with adventure. His epic journey crossing Antarctica on foot is a story of courage, love, family and the extremes of human capacity.

The Apple TV+ series is based on David Grann’s nonfiction work, The White Darkness, which tells Worsley’s true-life account of his adventures. Grann also wrote Killers of the Flower Moon, soon to be an Apple TV+ series from Martin Scorsese.

Tom Hiddleston is certainly best known for playing Loki in multiple Marvel movies and TV series.

As Apple TV+ just announced a series order for The White Darkness, it’s not known when it will debut on the streaming service.
