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.

FX debuted the first official teaser promo for The Strain Season 3, well-ahead of its August 28 premiere, in which a full 23 days have elapsed since the outbreak began (damn you, compressed timelines!). Either way, it looks like the military have their hands full, to say nothing of Eph (Corey Stoll) or the others.

So reads the full synopsis:

As season three begins, New York City is a battleground. Written off by the federal government, the people of New York City must fight for survival on their own. The question is who will win? Humans or strigoi? Our heroes win victories, but are not winning the war. Beset by personal conflicts – betrayal, disappointment, paranoia – our group is splintering… Meanwhile, the Master is close to executing an irreversible transformation of the world. Is there still hope to save the city and humanity?

We’ll surely learn more on the road to Comic-Con 2016, but check out the teaser above, and stay tuned for more on The Strain Season 3.
