The Strain returns to FX this Sunday and the network has released a short animated prequel to hold fans over and give them a clue about the only thing that could help stop the vampire outbreak.
The Occido Lumen, an ancient text filled with secrets and plagued with bad luck, could be the key to stopping the strigoi. It seems as if finding it could be a vital part of this season’s plot, but if history repeats itself, whoever does is in for some deadly consequences.
Watch the animated prequel, and read a complete synopsis of The Strain’s second season per 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.
Season two of The Strain premieres Sunday, July 12 at 10:00pm e/p only on FX.
