It seems like we’ve been waiting a long while for FX’s adaptation of the book trilogy The Strain, but we’re now a little under two months away from the show’s premiere and the network has unveiled some new teaser trailers and images to tide us over.  Created and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro, the story 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 co-wrote and directed the pilot and oversaw the writing of the scripts for the first season, but Lost alum Carlton Cuse acts as the day-to-day showrunner of the series.  It continues to look like a sufficiently creepy horror drama, and I can’t wait to check out the full show this summer.

Hit the jump to check out the new The Strain trailers and images.  The series stars Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel GomezThe Strain premieres on FX on July 13th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Strain:

The Strain is a high concept thriller from Academy Award® nominated Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, author Chuck Hogan and writer/producer Carlton Cuse, which is based on the best-selling vampire novel trilogy of the same title written by del Toro and Hogan.  It tells the story of “Dr. Ephraim Goodweather,” the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City.  He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.  As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.

Take a look at the The Strain trailers and images below, via FX.
