THE STRAIN Renewed - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

strainFX has renewed THE STRAIN for a second season, the network announced.

“We’ve never had any doubts about THE STRAIN,” said John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions, in a statement. “Working with [executive producers] Guillermo del Toro, Carlton Cuse, and the brilliant cast led by Corey Stoll has been everything we had hoped it would be and more. It is thrilling when you have a show that is a creative and commercial hit, which is a rare accomplishment in this increasingly crowded marketplace. We look forward having it on FX for as long as Carlton, Guillermo and Chuck Hogan need to tell this epic tale.”

“I am thrilled!” said del Toro, who directed the pilot/co-wrote the books THE STRAIN with Chuck Hogan. “Another season to spread the virus! Working with Carlton, Chuck and FX has been immensely rewarding and we have such sights to unveil in the upcoming episodes—the blood hits the fan on this one, mankind becomes an endangered species.”

“It’s been immensely satisfying over the last year-and-a-half to work with the incredible team at FX, Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan to bring THE STRAIN to life,” Cuse added. “I am grateful for all the blood, sweat and tears (but mostly blood) given to the project by all involved, and I could not be more excited to continue telling this epic story.”

THE STRAIN’s 13-episode second season will launch in summer 2015. Season 1 will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 2nd.
