TV Teaser For Guillermo Del Toro's Strain Show
Rats all, folks...

02 December 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: FX Networks

We’ve had very little in the way of visuals from the new TV series based on Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s vampire novel trilogy The Strain. And indeed, this new teaser won’t scratch any itch you have to see actual footage from the show; it’s strictly a found footage teaser aired during The Walking Dead. Still, it surely means that a proper trailer can’t be far away.

The Strain finds Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and his team battling a mysterious viral outbreak that bears all the hallmarks of an ancient strain of vampirism. The condition spreads, and soon Ephraim and a group of ordinary New Yorkers are battling for the fate of humankind.

The cast also features the likes of Kevin Durand, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Robert Maillet, John Hurt (though he’s only in the pilot, and David Bradley will take over his role in the series) and del Toro regular Doug Jones.

Following a positive reaction to the pilot directed by del Toro, the show scored a full 13-episode first series at the US FX network, and is currently shooting in Toronto, overseen by Lost and Bates Motel executive producer Carlton Cuse. There remains no word on when or where it will air in the UK.
