Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain gets a third lease on the television screen. FX recently signed the vampire horror show a new pact regardless of the cult tv show still sucking its way into the heartland of its 2nd season.
During a Television Critics Association press tour, Carlton Cuse showrunner of the television adaptation of the novel trilogy stated to TV Overmind that:
“The plan is that the show will run somewhere between three and five seasons. “We’re writing to an endpoint, following the path as established in the novels.”
Cuse is best known as the executive producer and screenwriter for the stuck-in-limbo American television drama thriller Lost.
Eric Schrier of FX Networks and FX Productions via The Hollwood Reporter proudly excited and has expressed his belief on the television show’s infective spread on its audience for the third season.
“Guillermo [del Toro] and Carlton [Cuse] have delivered two thrilling seasons of The Strain that are captivating and visually arresting, doing justice to the original novel trilogy and meeting fans’ high expectations in the process.”
Del Toro is best known in the Hollywood circle as the man behind the camera for the Pacific Rim movie series, the Hellboy films and Pan’s Labyrinth. Del Toro began “The Strain” with Chuck Hogan which then morphed into a trilogy. FX finally sank their teeth on del Torro and Both men found it a challenge to find an interested party so they gave in to publishing “The Strain” as a novel.
Meanwhile, TV Line provided an in-depth enquiry on the cast and crew still on the Television Critics Association press tour.
One of the creeping questions that had to be answered on the forum was the re-cast of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather’s (Corey Stoll) son.
“Different actors bring different qualities, and Max Charles (The Neighbors) had something that we really responded to that would be very much in line with where we were going with this character,” Cuse again provided the enlightenment.
