AceShowbiz - FX is wrapping up "The Strain". The Corey Stoll-starring show about a vampire outbreak in New York City has been picked up for the fourth and final season. Adapted from a book trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, the series will bid fans farewell with one last installment next year.
Creator Carlton Cuse says, "It is a true joy to work at FX where creative intentions always comes first. Our original plan was for the series to last three years. Once we began telling that story it expanded to be more. After finishing the writing on season three, Guillermo, Chuck and I looked at our remaining story and felt the best version could be told in one more season. We have a fantastic plan for an exciting and climatic season four. We are deeply grateful to FX for supporting our vision and for allowing us to end the show on our own timetable."
Last season only had 10 episodes instead of 13 like the first and second ones. Producers initially assured fans that they were not rushing to end the story and said it would continue until season 5. "The first book being the first season, the second book being the next two seasons and the third book the last two seasons," Cuse said.
