If you haven’t had all your fill on your virus infected FX series, you’re in luck. The cable network has announced today that The Strain has been renewed for a fourth and final season to air sometime next year.
Originally, the series was only planned to be a three year series, so a fourth year is an added gift for fans. “Our original plan was for the series to last three years,” said Executive Producer Carlton Cuse in a statement. “Once we began telling that story it expanded to be more. After finishing the writing on season three, Guillermo, Chuck and I looked at our remaining story and felt the best version could be told in one more season. We have a fantastic plan for an exciting and climatic season four. We are deeply grateful to FX for supporting our vision and for allowing us to end the show on our own timetable.”
“We sincerely thank Carlton Cuse, Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan and their creative team as well as the fantastic cast for three exciting seasons of The Strain,” said Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, in a joint statement “Though we’re sad to see it go, we fully support the way in which they are crafting the fourth season’s dramatic conclusion.”
