Second season confirmed for TV vampire novel adaptation The Strain.

Fans of The Strain (which had its pilot directed by Guillermo del Toro), rejoice. The vampire show, currently half way through its first season, has recently had a second run confirmed.

Marking a sizeable success for FX, who pushed out The Strain as their first ever Sunday night original programming, the powers that be have seen enough promise in the ratings numbers to allow the show to develop further.

“We’ve never had any doubts about The Strain,” claimed John Landgraf, FX’s CEO.

An excited del Toro, who also co-wrote The Strain novels with Chuck Hogan, enthused that “I am thrilled! 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.”

Show-runner Carlton Cuse added that “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.”
