Four photos have surfaced for Guillermo del Toro's upcoming vampire series, The Strain. They feature the three main stars of the series, Sean Astin, Corey Stoll, and Mia Meastro. We've seen a few promo teasers for this series over the last couple of months, but we have yet to see some actual footage from it. These photos give us our first real look at the show and the actors who are starring in it.
The Strain is a high concept thriller from Academy Award® nominated Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, author Chuck Hogan and writer/producer Carlton Cuse, which is based on the best-selling vampire novel trilogy of the same title written by del Toro and Hogan. It tells the story of “Dr. Ephraim Goodweather,” 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 Strain is set to premiere on FX on July 13th, 2014.
