Fans of Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain will be both thrilled and disappointed to hear the TV series has been renewed for fourth, but final season.
The new season will return in Summer 2017, as Carlton Cuse, del Toro and Chuck Hogan bring theto its climatic conclusion, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions.
We sincerely thank Carlton Cuse, Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan and their creative team as well as the fantastic cast for three exciting seasons of The Strain. Though we’re sad to see it go, we fully support the way in which they are crafting the fourth season’s dramatic conclusion.
It is a true joy to work at FX where creative intentions always comes first. Our original plan was for the series to last three years. Once we began telling that story it expanded to be more. After finishing the writing on season three, Guillermo, Chuck and I looked at our remaining story and felt the best version could be told in one more season. We have a fantastic plan for an exciting and climatic season four. We are deeply grateful to FX for supporting our vision and for allowing us to end the show on our own timetable.
So a bit of unfortunate news for The Strain, however, I’m sure it will be an amazing climax to the TV show, which is entirely based off of the best-selling Trilogy of the same name by del Toro and Hogan.
Stay tuned tofor much more daily news.
