If waiting until next year for Crimson Peak or the newly confirmed Pacific Rim 2 in 2017 is too long for those of you itching for your Guillermo del Toro fix, a solution is coming very soon.
The adaptation of del Toro and Chuck Hogan‘s book trilogy The Strain debuts on FX on July 13th, and it’s clearly got that del Toro look to it, primarily Blade II del Toro.
A pair of new behind the scenes preview videos have been released, showing plenty of peeks at the series along with chats with cast and crew, which can be seen below.
