FX has released a new look at the darker second season of The Strain.
The show’s second season doesn’t premiere until July, but judging from the new promo released, this season may be well worth the wait. The cast, including Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Mía Maestro and Kevin Durant, all agree that this season is filled with more horror, darkness and much higher stakes now that the virus is running rampantly through New York.
You can watch the season 2 first look below:
Here’s a complete synopsis of what you can expect from the show’s second season, thanks to FX:
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 Strain premieres Sunday, July 12 at 10:00pm e/p only on FX.
