It was announced today that FX’s vampire hit The Strain will return for a fourth and what will be the show’s final season. The show, which has become a favorite amongst horror fans, is based on the best-selling trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, who along with Carlton Cuse make up the series’ creative team.
Currently airing its third season, The Strain was apparently only intended for a three to five season run according to del Toro’s comments to Deadline Hollywood back in September of 2012. Today after the announcement Cuse stated, “Our original plan was for the series to last three years.” He went on to add “once we began telling that story it expanded to be more. After finishing the writing on Season 3, Guillermo, Chuck and I looked at our remaining story and felt the best version could be told in one more season.”
