We’ve been anticipating Guillermo Del Toro and Carlton Cuse‘s upcoming thriller, The Strain, for a while now. We’ve been getting teasers here and there, and nothing substantial. Today, we have another teaser, but a bit more footage to go off from. I know this show is going to have vampires in it, because I have the graphic novel. Why they refuse to show us this and play it up more like a medical mystery thing is beyond me. Meh, I’m still going to watch it when it comes this July to FX.
Here’s the synopsis.
[box_light]“‘The Strain’ is a high concept thriller that tells the story of “Dr. Ephraim Goodweather” (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.”[/box_light]
The Strain will likely debut in July 13th, 2014. It’s based off the book by Chuck Hogan and Guillermo Del Toro. The show will star: Corey Stoll, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammell, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Robert Maillet.
