The strigoi scourge on FX is coming to a close—The Strain has been renewed for a fourth and final season. The final chapter from Guillermo Del Toro, Carlton Cuse and Chuck Hogan is set for summer 2017. Yes, that means you just have one more advertising cycle to get outraged over their new season ads.
“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,” Nick Grad, co-president of original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions, said in a statement. “Though we’re sad to see it go, we fully support the way in which they are crafting the fourth season’s dramatic conclusion.”
Season three is currently underway on FX. Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Natalie Brown, Miguel Gomez, Max Charles, Ruta Gedmintas, Rupert Penry-Jones, Samantha Mathis and Joaquín Cosío star in the sci-fi series about the showdown between humans and strigoi in New York.
“It is a true joy to work at FX where creative intentions always comes first,” Cuse said in a statement. “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.”
