Originally posted on Deadline:
Four weeks into The Strain‘s sophomore season, the FX horror drama has been picked up for a third, to air next summer. A breakout when it launched last summer, The Strain has been down in the ratings in Season 2 but continues to be strong in the adults 18-49 demo and to deliver solid DVR gains. The second episode posted 2.6 million viewers in Live+3 and 1.5 million adults 18-49.
The thriller, from Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse, is based on the best-selling The Strain Trilogy by del Toro and Chuck Hogan. “Guillermo and Carlton 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,” said FX’s Eric Schrier.
