While there may be a new zombie drama premiering on AMC this summer, FX has its own show already with post-Apocalyptic leanings in “The Strain” that is just as disgusting visually as some of what you’ve seen over on the Robert Kirkman adaptation. It’s intense, has some great performances, and also happened to be one of the biggest new scripted cable hits of 2014.
Now, we have an official premiere date for you in Sunday, July 12 at 10:00 p.m. Easter time. It is still somewhat new for FX to dive into Sunday-night programming, but for some reason he does work for this show. The network also released an official synopsis, and you can take a look at that below for all sorts of scoop in terms of what you can expect:
“It can no longer be denied — New York City is rapidly falling to an evil epidemic, and no one is coming to its rescue. Its citizens must fight or die. Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (played Corey Stoll) and his unlikely allies tried to take down the embodiment of this evil — the Master — and failed. Now Eph and Dr. Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) concentrate on creating a biological weapon to wipe out the creatures, while Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley) searches for an ancient book he hopes will reveal the strigoi’s entire history… and possibly a way to kill them.”
Sound exciting? We’re at least intrigued by seeing how the show can live up to its first season on the air, which is sometimes harder for genre shows that start off with a great premise. “The Walking Dead” in many ways had it easier, mostly because it was building off of a short first season and had specific source material.
