FX Sets The Strain Season 2 Premiere Date

The Strain

Are you ready for more vampire scares this summer? FX has set the premiere date for the second season of its horror drama The Strain. The series, which stars Corey Stoll (House of Cards, Ant-Man), will remain in the same timeslot it had during its first season and begin Season 2 on Sunday, July 12, at 10 p.m. on FX.

The Strain Season 1 was last year’s most-watched new scripted series on cable among adults 18-49. The show averaged 2.4 million viewers a week in that key demo, despite getting mixed reviews from critics after being one of the most highly anticipated new series of 2014.

Per FX, the official description for The Strain‘s second season states, “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. Meanwhile, the Master is out for revenge, unleashing new and even more terrifying breeds of bloodthirsty creatures after our team. Our team must find a way to defeat him before the infection spreads too far and becomes irreparable… before they become monsters themselves.”
