‘Finding Carter,’ ‘The Strain’ season 2 official; MTV, FX renew both shows

The latest -This article is basically a double-dose of renewal news, which is great in the event that you love the two shows mentioned.

“Finding Carter” – Let’s begin here with MTV’s buzzy kidnapping show, which drew headlines from basically the moment that its twist was first revealed. It has been given another season, which follows a pattern for MTV of generally giving most of its scripted shows two kicks at the can. Hopefully, this will allow people more time to start to know this show and what it is about, that way they can come out even more in droves for when season 2 premieres.

“The Strain” – Meanwhile, this is official confirmation from FX right now on something we first reported a little while ago. The show, from Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse, is officially going to be back for more next year. The ratings are great, the fan base is there, and there is nothing really to worry about.

In a statement, John Landgraf of FX networks (arguably one of the best executives there is) had the following to say:

“We’ve never had any doubts about The Strain … Working with Guillermo del Toro, Carlton Cuse, and the brilliant cast led by Corey Stoll has been everything we had hoped it would be and more. It is thrilling when you have a show that is a creative and commercial hit, which is a rare accomplishment in this increasingly crowded marketplace. We look forward having it on FX for as long as Carlton, Guillermo and Chuck Hogan need to tell this epic tale.”
