Things are only going to get worse for Eph and the gang on FX’s The Strain this summer.

That’s according to the latest from the Network on the recently announced second season.

Based on The Strain Trilogy from Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, the vampire thriller makes a return to FX, Sundays at 10 PM e/p, from July 12th.

As the second season unfolds, the transformation has begun. It can no longer be denied — New York City is rapidly falling to an evil epidemic, and no one is coming to its rescue. Its citizens must fight or die. Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and his unlikely allies tried to take down the embodiment of this evil — the Master — and failed.

Now Eph and Dr. Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) concentrate on creating a biological weapon to wipe out the creatures, while Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley) searches for an ancient book he hopes will reveal the strigoi’s entire history… and possibly a way to kill them.

Meanwhile, the Master is out for revenge, unleashing new and even more terrifying breeds of bloodthirsty creatures after our team.

Our team must find a way to defeat him before the infection spreads too far and becomes irreparable … before they become monsters themselves.
