Prior reports from del Toro capped the series around five seasons, but FX will officially eradicate the infection after four next year.
It’s easy to forget that the first two seasons of FX’s Guillermo del Toro-fueled The Strain only take place over a matter of weeks, but by the time Season 3 begins, the threat is already starting to evolve.

It’s been a few weeks since we first learned that FX Guillermo del Toro drama The Strain would air later than Comic-Con, premiering Season 3 all the way in late August, but the first footage might be worth the wait. It’s all out war, 23 days into the vampire outbreak, and The Strain is spreading.
Break out the trash juice and/or goblets of blood, both FX vampire thriller The Strain and breakout FXX dramedy You’re The Worst have official Season 3 premiere dates for summer. When in August can you expect vampire legions of a coastal city to siege our heroes, and ditto for The Strain?
Even Game of Thrones’ worst villains have a tendency to get their comeuppance, and few have gone unpunished as long as David Bradley’s Red Wedding mastermind Walder Frey.

FX vampire thriller The Strain will return for Season 2 in only a few hours, but the Guillermo del Toro-adapted series couldn’t wait to vomit forth a few wormy details from Comic-Con 2015.

The virus may not have taken over the world just yet, but The Strain is spreading faster than even Season 2 of the FX Guillermo del Toro vampire drama can contain.

New York City may be overrun with vampires, but The Strain has only begun to spread by news of its Season 2 premiere. FX has officially set a July debut for its next round of Guillermo del Toro horror, teasing the gang’s new mission with a full synopsis.
