Following three seasons on the air thus far, the FX original drama series – as originally co-created by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan in their trilogy of horror novels published between 2009 and 2011 – is all set to rap up with its fourth and final season, as intimated by the latest trailer for The Strain. Centering around the rise of virulent strain of a vampiric virus that begins infecting the global population of planet Earth, in addition to the rise of an evil horde of undead horror movie monster baddies, the Carlton Cuse-run TV show has resulted in a generally well-liked genre production fit to please general audiences.
With returning lead actor Corey Stoll as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather – the head of the New York City Center for Disease Control Canary Team – on board for the final ten episodes of the series proper, longtime fans of The Strain are in for quite the finale when the show returns later this summer. As everything continues to heat up in what is sure to be an ending that is fated to be nothing short of apocalyptic, the latest trailer for season four assures viewers that the end is nigh – for real.
In the footage featured above, potential viewers of the fourth and final season of The Strain can get their first look at everything that chief showrunner and executive producer Cuse has cooking behind the scenes of the FX original program. Picking up where the third season left off, Stoll as Dr. Goodweather is in for a bit of a fight as he appears to be humanity’s last hope in fighting off the undead horde.
After three seasons on the air thus far, viewers who have kept up with The Strain will no doubt be excited to learn where their favorite recurring characters and villains end up following the airing of the final ten episodes comprising the show’s fourth and final season. Based on the footage released thus far, things are about to get pretty hair for Dr. Goodweather and the CNC as the end appears to be looming on the horizon.
It remains to be seen how capably Cuse manages to wrap up The Strain on FX – a creative feat that will be double interesting to watch for those who are familiar with the original trilogy of novels co-written by del Toro and Hogan. In the meantime, here’s to hoping for the very best from the fourth season of the original horror series as it draws to a climactic close.
The Strain continues on FX July 16, 2017.
