Following the debut of the first trailer for The Strain two weeks ago, FX has released three new promos for their vampire TV show.

Kicking off on July 16, the fourth and final season of the series based on Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain Trilogy of books follows our ragtag group of resistance fighters led by Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll).

The series picks up nine months after the events of the Season 3 finale and the strigoi can now move in the daylight. The first promo introduces a strigoi “demon,” whilst the second Eph-centric promo talks about a new species rising and mankind’s extinction. As for the third and final promo released a few days ago, Fet (Kevin Durand) has a bit of a fireside “chat” with ... Setrakian (David Bradley).

Hailing from executive producer and showrunner Carlton Cuse (Lost), The Strain stars Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Jonathan Hyde, Kevin Durand, Ruta Gedmintas, Miguel Gomez, Richard Sammel, Max Charles and Rupert Penry-Jones. Are you ready for the final season?

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?
