I watched season 1 of The Strain and I was pretty into it, until the reveal of the Master. I’ve never actually turned away from a show because of the look of the bad guy before, but he was so goofy looking that it pulled me right out of any of the tension I’d been feeling from previous episodes. With that said, I missed season 2 and didn’t even know they had renewed it for season 3. But, here we are, season 3 is coming and the trailer has just been released. It even looks like the majority of the players from Season 1 have made it through the fray. OOh… Fray. Now that’s a vampire series I’d love to see made into TV. You hearing me Whedon?

As season three begins, New York City is a battleground. Written off by the federal government, the people of New York City must fight for survival on their own. The question is who will win? Humans or strigoi? Our heroes win victories, but are not winning the war. Beset by personal conflicts – betrayal, disappointment, paranoia – our group is splintering… Meanwhile, the Master is close to executing an irreversible transformation of the world. Is there still hope to save the city and humanity?

Season 3 of The Strain will return to TV at the end of August on FX. The show stars: Corey Stoll, Mía Maestro, David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel, Jack Kesy, Miguel Gomez, and Robin Atkin Downes.
