Will there be The Strain season 3? What about the start air date? FX renewed the show for a third season to premiere in 2016.
American drama series The Strain is based on the trilogy of the same name of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Both authors wrote the script for the pilot episode, and del Toro also acted as a director.
The show premiered on July 13, 2014 and was watched by about 3 million people. In general, the first season got positive reviews, which contributed to its renewal. After the release of the fourth episode of the second season, the rights holders announced about the renewal of the show for Season 3 and its broadcast by FX next year.
The executive producer Carlton Cuse added, that originally, minimum three seasons had been planned, but it didn’t mean that in 2016 the trilogy would be totally adapted and the number of seasons would be increased to 4 or 5. The channel management is ready to support the show, as at the moment the project Strain is very important for FX, despite the fact that the number of its fans has reduced to 1.4 million people this year.
According to the data received, the premiere date of the third season is scheduled for Aug. 28, 2016 (at 10/9c) and, apparently, again 13 episodes will be produced.
