‘The Strain’ Gets Trailer For It’s 4th & Final Season
Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Kevin Durand, and Ruta Gedmintas return for one final outing, as ‘The Strain‘ drops a new trailer for it’s 4th and final season.
For those of you wanting a recap on where we ended after season 3, billionaire Eldritch Palmer (Jonathan Hyde) ended up becoming The Master, but had been trapped in a silver-lined sarcophagus by the vampire hunting gang. Unfortunately, not before he could plant a nuclear bomb, which gets detonated, freeing him, and blotting out the sun, allowing the strigoi to walk in the day, and forcing the human group underground to avoid the fallout.
As the final season begins, nine months have passed. The world has fallen into darkness, and the strigoi are in control. The nuclear winter has liberated the strigoi, allowing them to move about during daytime, and enabling the Master to establish a totalitarian regime. Preying on the fears of the populace, the Master and his minions have created an unsettling alliance in “The Partnership.”
The majority of humans are now working for the strigoi, operating with a single understanding – collaborate or die. With the world in disarray and our heroes disbanded, each of them will have to overcome personal hardship and defy death for even the smallest chance at fighting back. All the while, the Master reigns supreme, furthering his scheme for the end of the world as we know it.
In the face of annihilation… Do our heroes have what it takes to save humankind?
The Strain airs on W (the channel formerly known as Watch) in the UK. No official UK TV air date for season 4 yet, but it’s likely to be late August/early September 2017.
