2014 is still quite new, but FX is getting a jump on things by debuting the first images from two highly anticipated new drama series that will be premiering this year. The Strain is created and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro and revolves around a team of scientists who wage war against an ancient strain of virus that confers vampirism, along with those it infects. Del Toro directed the pilot himself but Carlton Cuse (Lost) will be assuming showrunner duties, and these first images give us a look at Corey Stoll (House of Cards) in the lead role. The 13-episode first season of The Strain debuts on FX this July.
Additionally, we have our first look at the limited series adaptation of Fargo. Executive produced by Joel and Ethan Coen, the 10-episode show is a reimagining of the classic Coen brothers film and stars Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, and Allison Tolman. The series premieres sometime this spring. Hit the jump for the first images from both The Strain and Fargo.
