Good news fellow strigoi-hunters! The Strain, the FX series from Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse, based on the books by del Toro and Chuck Hogan, has been renewed for a 3rd season. Well deserved, as this crazy show has been non-stop interesting and scary, with twists and turns galore.
The Strain stars Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel, Jonathan Hyde, Miguel Gomez, Natalie Brown, Rita Gedmintas, and Jack Kesy. Season 1 took our motley heros through the infection and outbreak. Now season 2 has us thick in the battle between humans and vampires.
Where will season 3 bring us?
Who knows? But I can’t wait to find out.
The Strain airs Sunday nights at 10pm ET on FX.
FX’s season 2 synopsis:
The transformation has begun.
It can no longer be denied — New York City is rapidly falling to an evil epidemic, and no one is coming to its rescue. Its citizens must fight or die.
Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his unlikely allies tried to take down the embodiment of this evil — the Master — and failed. Now Eph and Dr. Nora Martinez concentrate on creating a biological weapon to wipe out the creatures, while Abraham Setrakian searches for an ancient book he hopes will reveal the strigoi’s entire history…and possibly a way to kill them. Meanwhile, the Master is out for revenge, unleashing new and even more terrifying breeds of bloodthirsty creatures. They need to find a way to defeat him before the infection spreads too far and becomes irreparable…before they become monsters themselves.
