‘The Strain’ will continue to spread because the vampire series has been picked up for a second season at FX….
The freshman series hit ‘The Strain’ will return for a second season after being renewed on Tuesday by FX. The show based on books by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan was brought to life on television along with the help of former ‘Lost’ show runner Carlton Cuse.
The show has become one of the summer’s biggest hits drawing in 5.2 million viewers in the coveted 18-49 demographic (across all platforms), which has made it the most widely watched new series so far this year for that age group.
“I am thrilled! Another season to spread the virus!” Del Toro said in a press release. “Working with Carlton, Chuck and FX has been immensely rewarding and we have such sights to unveil in the upcoming episodes—the blood hits the fan on this one, mankind becomes an endangered species.”
The second season has been approved for a 13-episode order just like the first and will debut on FX in summer 2015.
