A little over a week ago we received the news that Guillermo del Toro’s (Pacific Rim) co-written Vampire Trilogy, The Strain, was in fact getting 13 episodes on FX. FX hasn’t wasted in promoting the upcoming series and has already released a viral video featuring the early days of the outbreak. Check that out below.
The “first season of the show that focuses on the outbreak of a vampire virus. Corey Stoll will star as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the man tasked with investigating the virus and saving the day”.
The trilogy has also been adapted into a comic series by Dark Horse. Here is the synopsis (via Dark Horse Comics) of the first trade paper back “Unable to kill the Master—the powerful vampire behind the epidemic infesting New York City—Dr. Ephraim Goodweather begins to self-destruct as battle lines are drawn. It’s now up to a handful of humans—an ailing pawnbroker, an exterminator, a scientist, a gangbanger, and an alcoholic—to stop an ancient evil from devouring the human race! This collection includes issues #1–#4 of the acclaimed series and the short story featured in Dark Horse Presents”.
