A The Strain Community
Sunday 10:00 PM on FX (Returning Summer 2016)

After several short teasers and one very short trailer, we're finally getting a good look at one of our most anticipated new shows of the summer: FX's The Strain. From the look of the latest trailer—which is a full minute and a half long!—this vampire drama is 75 percent creepy thriller and 100 percent my favorite new show. 

From executive producer Guillermo del Toro, The Strain is based on a trilogy of novels by del Toro and Chuck Hogan that center on a viral outbreak in New York City that looks a hell of a lot like vampirism. And it's not the sissy kind of vampirism, either. No, if you're looking for sparkly, diary-writing vamps with sexy hero hair, you won't find 'em here. 

Did you jump? I totally jumped. 

And dare I say that it's about damn time that vampires were terrifying again? Consider this my break-up letter to the Salvatores, because I am all about The Strain now. 

The Strain premieres Sunday, July 13 on FX. Are you ready?
