Marketing for Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s new FX series “The Strain” is in full-swing as the network has dished out a rather dark new promo for the show, which comes right on the heels of the new poster that was quite an eyeful. It isn't much, but the lingering shot of dozens of body bags is some powerful stuff and certainly the darkest taste of the show we've seen yet. Dig it below!
His army will rise this summer.
The Strain is a high-concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (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.
"The Strain" stars Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Roger Cross, Leslie Hope, Regina King, Robert Maillet, Lauren Lee Smith, Miguel Gomez, Kevin Durand, David Bradley, and Richard Sammel.
