'The Strain' Renewed For Season 2 (possible spoilers)

Guilolermo Del Toro and one of his vampries

'The Strain' has been a great success for F/X: an average of 11 million viewers an episode, factoring in DVR playback and repeats. So it's no surprise that the network has renewed the series based on the three-novel trilogy by filmmaker Guillermo del Toro (pictured above, right) and Chuck Hogan.

The show currently airs in the U.S. on FX on Sundays at 10/9 central, and takes a non-mainstream approach to vampires. They are presented as the results of a virus, transformed into near-bestial creatures that ravenously feed and infect others. For those familiar with the novels, it comes as no surprise that there is much more in store, and that the plague spreads beyond the confines of NYC.

The series stars Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Mia Maestro, and Sean Astin, among others. At least one of the main characters has survived past the point that they did in the first novel, so who will continue into season 2 remains to be seen.

Six of the thirteen episodes in season 1 have already aired, with seven more remaining.

:They are presented as the results of a virus,: No one read the shitty books then? Books were so terribly dreadful,started fine but went with the brain dead religious crap,can't watch the show. Unlike the bridge or The Killing whivh were so good I couldn;t watch the show. Or GOT where the books far eclipsed the show making it unwatchable.
