FX renews The Strain for a fourth and final season

Although I wouldn't count The Strain among my favourite television series and likely won't revisit it once the show concludes, I enjoy it for the silly ride that it is, especially when you throw in some gruesome effects and David Bradley as Professor Abraham Setrakian. The Strain was always heading towards an end-game but today's announcement from FX has that end-game...

The stakes are raised in the trailer for season 2 of The Strain

Last year, Guillermo Del Toro adapted his best-selling novel series The Strain into an FX television series alongside Lost and Bates Motel showrunner Carlton Cuse. The resulting series was frustrating for many as it had all the hallmarks of a good vampire story but just could not stick the landing.

Both cable stations have committed to creating high quality series that are able to push the limits of what could otherwise be shown on network channels. While there may not be the same explicit nudity and language as HBO and Showtime, both AMC and FX get away with a lot of borderline content. With FX premiering...
