We are just a week away from the premiere of the new FX series The Strain and as a result we’re starting to see more and more about the show as that premiere ate nears.
Director Guillermo del Toro is set to direct the pilot episode of the series as he’s not only a driving force behind the show being made but he’s also the co-creator of the story itself, dating back to the graphic novel he co-wrote in which the story is based on. To tide us over until next Sunday’s premiere, FX has released a new trailer for the show which again tells us literally nothing about the show but piques our interest to say the least.
The Strain is a high concept thriller that tells the story of “Dr. Ephraim Goodweather,” the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
The Strain premieres this July 13th on FX at 10pm ET.
