“The world is dying. They are its last hope.” FX has released the first tense trailer for the upcoming fourth and final season of its vampire TV show, The Strain.
Based on Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain Trilogy of books, the series hails from executive producer and showrunner Carlton Cuse and stars Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Jonathan Hyde, Kevin Durand, Ruta Gedmintas, Miguel Gomez, Richard Sammel, Max Charles and Rupert Penry-Jones.
Season 4 picks up nine months after we left off: with the strigoi now being able to move freely in the daytime (which, as you know, is a big whopping problem) and Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and the rest of our ragtag group of survivors now humanity’s last hope. Oh, the humanity. Read up on the extended synopsis before digging into the trailer below. The 10-episode final season will premiere on July 16 at 10 p.m. on FX.
As the fourth and final season begins, nine months have passed. The world has fallen into darkness, and the strigoi are in control. The explosion at the end of season three triggered a global nuclear apocalypse. The resulting nuclear winter liberated the strigoi, allowing them to move about during daytime, and allowing the Master to establish a totalitarian regime. Preying on the fears of the populace, the Master and his minions have created an unsettling alliance in “The Partnership.” The majority of humans are now working for the strigoi, operating with a single understanding — collaborate or die. With the world in disarray and our heroes disbanded, each of them will have to overcome personal hardship and defy death for even the smallest chance at fighting back… All the while, the Master reigns supreme, furthering his scheme for the end of the world as we know it. In the face of annihilation…do our heroes have what it takes to save humankind?
