About the Show

The Strain is an American horror series created by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan and based on their vampire novel trilogy of the same name, in which a scientist who is called to investigate a viral outbreak on an aeroplane finds himself drawn into a much larger, more dangerous conspiracy.

Dr. Ephraim Goodweather is the head of the Centers 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.

Harlem pawnbroker Abraham Setrakian races to the airport, convinced that what looks at first like a mysterious viral outbreak might be the beginning of something infinitely more sinister.

As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.

Co-creators, executive producers and writers del Toro and Hogan co-wrote the pilot script for The Strain, which was directed by del Toro. Emmy Award winning Writer and Producer Carlton Cuse serves as Executive Producer/Showrunner and Writer. Gary Ungar also serves as Executive Producer.

The series is produced by FX Productions.
