FX unveiled the first The Strain Season 2 trailer during last night’s football game, and the clip has now landed online for those that missed the brief tease of the new season. The show is an adaptation of the novel trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, and it revolves around the spread of an age-old virus that turns people into blood-sucking vampires. I watched most of the first season and enjoyed the majority of it, but I do hope the story gains some momentum in the show’s second season. The backstory on David Bradley’s character was a particular standout, as was the makeup effects on the head honcho vampire, The Master, and it should be interesting to see how the show progresses in its second season. Del Toro was too busy to come back and direct a full episode, but he did oversee some second-unit work and helped break the story. Carlton Cuse returns as showrunner.
Check out the first The Strain Season 2 trailer after the jump. The Strain returns to FX this summer.
