We learned nearly a year ago that FX Networks had renewed “The Strain” for a third season. Based off Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain Trilogy, the vampire outbreak series has a strong following. It was a bit surprising when it was announced that season three would only consist of 10 episodes, three shorter than each of the past two seasons (13 apiece). It will be great seeing Dr. Goodweather (good ol’ Eph) and his allies enter the 24th day since the outbreak. To whet our appetite so we can endure the next two months until its debut, FX has released the official trailer for season three.
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.
The Strain stars Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Natalie Brown, Miguel Gomez, Max Charles, Ruta Gedmintas, Rupert Penry-Jones, Samantha Mathis and Joaquín Cosío.
Season 3 premieres Sunday, August 28th at 10pm.
