Read a complete synopsis of what you can expect from the show’s second season, thanks to FX, below:
As the second season unfolds, 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 (Corey Stoll) and his unlikely allies tried to take down the embodiment of this evil — the Master — and failed. Now Eph and Dr. Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) concentrate on creating a biological weapon to wipe out the creatures, while Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley) 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 after our team. Our team must find a way to defeat him before the infection spreads too far and becomes irreparable … before they become monsters themselves.
The first season of the award-winning thriller from Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse was a huge success, as the most-watched new cable drama of 2014. It was 2014’s most-watched new scripted series among all basic and pay cable networks in adults 18-49, receiving 6.28 million Total Viewers, averaging about 3.49 million viewers per week.
