FX Renews The Strain for Fourth and Final Season
Next summer, the story of the Strigoi invasion of New York is about to end. The FX network has just announced that The Strain will return next year for a fourth and final season. With this renewal, Carlton Cuse, Guillermo del Toro, and Chuck Hogan will bring this thriller to a close.
According to Deadline, FX made the announcement at a press release as The Strain is in the middle of airing it’s third season. “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, FX Network President of Original Programming. “Though we’re sad to see it go, we fully support the way in which they are crafting the fourth season’s dramatic conclusion.”
“It is a true joy to work at FX where creative intentions always comes first,” said Carlton Cuse. He originally envisioned the series as a three-season show, but Cuse later admitted that he and the staff already planned for an endgame for next year. Here’s what he said:
Our original plan was for the series to last three years. 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
