Watch The New Trailer Of 'The Strain', Based On The Book By Guillermo Del Toro And Chuck Hogan

Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan's The Strain has received a warm welcome from readers world wide. It gives a new twist on vampires, the way how The Walking Dead changed zombies in television. Because of this success, FX executives found it proper to adapt the said book into a TV series.

The Strain

The first season of the series will be composed of thirteen episodes. The pilot epidose was written by Del Toro and Hogan themselves, with Del Toro directing, how good is that for a treat. The showrunner is Carlton Cuse, who is also best known for Lost.

Watch the new trailer of the TV series The Strain.


A Boeing 777 lands at JFK with no communication or signs of life. Eph Goodweather, who investigates biological threats for the CDC, is called in and discovers all the passengers dead, and signs that a strange being had been aboard the vessel. Soon, he teams with ex-professor and Holocaust survivor Abraham Setrakian and they assemble a ragtag group that represents mankind’s only hope when a swarm of vampires quickly turn civilization into a buffet spread.

Fittingly for male-driven FX, unlike the traditional, romanticized portrayals of vampires as tuxedo-clad studs, The Strain‘s bloodsuckers have no seductive powers — they are parasites, husks of their former human form with stingers that drain blood for nourishment, while spreading capillary worms that convert victims into more vampires under the control of The Master.

The Strain will premiere on July 13, 2014, only at FX.
