We might not have any eye-worms on the billboards this year, but that won’t stop The Strain from grossing out FX viewers anew in Season 3. The first real Season 3 trailer has arrived, bringing fear and confusion to the vampire-ridden streets of New York a mere 23 days after the outbreak.

We’re still mostly in shock from the freak accident that claimed Star Trek star Anton Yelchin’s life, but the question inevitably turns to the actor’s uncompleted works. Yelchin had several TV projects in the works as well, including a lead voice in Guillermo del Toro’s animated Netflix Trollhunters, of which sources say most work had been completed, but may end up recast.
Just days behind the new Voltron debut, Netflix’s next major animated series is already gearing up. Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters has officially confirmed a cast, including Hellboy favorite Ron Perlman, Star Trek vet Anton Yelchin and more from the “family event series” due in December 2016.
It’s been a long time coming for Guillermo del Toro and Travis Beacham’s A Killing on Carnival Row, longer still after Amazon commissioned development last year, but the supernatural thriller is finally moving to pilot. So too is a new standup comedy series from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, a real-life superhero drama and more.
It’s been a long, slow trip to the screen for Pacific Rim 2, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro 2013’s sci-fi blockbuster, and for a while it didn’t look like the movie would happen at all. Back in January, there was even talk that the movie was “off the table indefinitely
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?
Guillermo del Toro’s next project is shaping up quite nicely, with Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer and Michael Stuhlbarg already set to star in what’s being described as an “otherworldly” love story set against the backdrop of the Cold War. The latest casting update not only reveals that Michael Shannon is in talks to join the lineup, but confirms last week’s rumor that Richard Jenkins is also coming aboard.
Despite reports on the various projects he’s had brewing for some time, Guillermo del Toro remained predictably unpredictable when he recently decided to move forward on a project that no one knew much about. We do know it’s a Cold War romance with a fantasy element, and we know it stars Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spencer — and if this new report is to be believed, then we may also know a few more details, including a new cast member and a title.
In addition to his actual home, Guillermo del Toro constructed a second home filled with collectibles, books and inspirational pieces of art. Named Bleak House after the Charles Dickens novel, del Toro was inspired by Disney’s research library to build this creative space / museum / second home, and now hundreds of pieces of the filmmaker’s art will become part of a special traveling art exhibit that will kick off at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
