The Strain (FX) – What To Expect [Exclusive]

FX’s new show, The Strain, takes viewers on a frightening journey into the aftermath of a viral outbreak that causes a pandemic of vampiric proportions. From the brilliantly twisted mind of Guillermo del Toro, The Strain seeks to create a new vampire mythology that eschews diamond-sparkle skin and other “magical” creatures.

To celebrate the show’s debut on July 13, 2014 at 10pm, FX hosted a star-studded red carpet this week in Hollywood. We caught up with Executive producer Guillermo del Toro & Chuck Hogan, series star Sean Astin, Ben Hyland, Jack Kesy, Jonathan Hyde, Robin Atkin Downes to get their thoughts on this modern day horror story.
