Even as Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain was eagerly anticipated for a live-action adaptation, few would argue that the FX series has lost some steam in its second and third years. Prior reports from del Toro capped the series around five seasons, but FX will officially eradicate the infection after four next year.
FX’s The Strain has tried out a few different promotional strategies for Season 3, and its new credits might be the clearest depiction yet. The Guillermo del Toro vampire drama takes a third stab at flashy new titles, looking a bit like The Walking Dead meets American Horror Story.
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. Strigoi are faster, smarter, and of course even uglier in a new two-minute sneak peek from the forthcoming season.
This week will mark the first Comic-Con 2016 with Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain previewing a season not already in progress, but new bits of footage have started to eke out ahead of a full trailer. It looks like The Master is literally on the warpath, as new Season 3 promos see the military about to be overwhelmed by the Strigoi threat.
Boy howdy, is it a good thing FX opted to renew Archer for three seasons, lest Comic-Con 2016 get seriously awkward. The animated spy comedy will officially take aim at Comic-Con 2016 with a full appearance, along with an early look at The Strain Season 3, but what’s missing from the lineup?
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.
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?
Whatever you make of FX’s Guillermo del Toro-adapted vampire thriller The Strain, the vampire apocalypse isn’t about to end with Team Eph’s current run. The network has officially infected the series with a Season 3 renewal, bringing more eye-worms and towering Strigoi to New York City streets in 2016.
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. In addition to a number of bonus shorts debuted on the panel, del Toro revealed that he himself had directed an important character introduction, and we were on hand at the panel for a full report.
