The worst part about watching a new series is you never know if the time you invest in it will pay off. Sometimes shows are cut short, and other times they’re just not renewed, leaving you with a cliffhanger in nowheresville. Thankfully, that’s NOT going to happen with “The Strain.”
Canada’s Global News is reporting that U.S. cable channel FX is set to announce it has renewed the vampiric virus drama “The Strain” for a second season. The series will be back in production in Toronto in mid-November.
Meanwhile, we still have several episodes left in Season 1, including Sunday night’s Episode 1.06, “Occultation,” once again directed by RoboCop himself, Peter Weller.
The ensemble cast of “The Strain” is comprised of Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, Miguel Gomez, and David Bradley.
