Guillermo Del Toro is bringing his horror show, The Strain, to FX sometime next year. The show is based off a book by Del Toro and Chuck Hogan.

Check out the teaser that aired during Walking Dead mid-season finale below!

What took the lives of an airplane full of people?
Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, Head of the Center for Disease Control’s New York team, is racing to find out, but little does Eph know that the nightmare is only just beginning.
Abraham Setrakian is an elderly Armenian professor who understands the darkness that is descending. Many years ago, in the hellish barracks of the Treblinka extermination camp, he faced a horror more terrifying than death itself.
Before the next sundown Eph, Setrakian, and a motley collection of heroes must undertake the ultimate fight for survival. Should they fail, New York will be lost. And the rest of the world will follow…
