Exciting news from FX — they’ve ordered a second season of The Strain!
Once the first season wraps in October, the hit drama will return with 13 new episodes in Summer 2015.
Guillermo del Toro, who directed the pilot and co-wrote the books with Chuck Hogan, said: “I am thrilled! Another season to spread the virus! Working with Carlton, Chuck and FX has been immensely rewarding and we have such sights to unveil in the upcoming episodes — the blood hits the fan on this one, mankind becomes an endangered species.”
Carlton Cuse also commented on the renewal: “It’s been immensely satisfying over the last year-and-a-half to work with the incredible team at FX, Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan to bring The Strain to life. I am grateful for all the blood, sweat and tears (but mostly blood) given to the project by all involved, and I could not be more excited to continue telling this epic story.”
The Strain was the most-watched series premiere in FX history, and because of its overwhelming popularity, Season 1 will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on December 2.
