Recently we found out that The Strain, the planned new TV series adapted from the book trilogy of the same name by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, had been picked up for an entire season by FX.
To hold us over until an official trailer and the show itself arrives, a brief viral clip was shown during the most recent episode of The Walking Dead. The clip is titled “He Is Here,” and it involves lots of rats.
You can check out the viral clip for The Strain below.
The Strain is a high concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
The show stars Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel Gomez, and will be run by LOST showrunner Carlton Cuse.
The Strain is set to premiere in July of 2014.
