Cover your eyes, "The Strain" is coming. The latest teaser from FX's upcoming horror series gives viewers an eyeful of creepiness.
"The Strain," whose ensemble cast includes Corey Stoll, Regina King, Mia Maestro and Sean Astin, will premiere on FX in July. The series is based on the bestselling vampire trilogy written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. "Lost" alum Carlton Cuse is the writer/producer.
"The Strain" follows a CDC doctor's investigation into a viral outbreak somehow connected to an ancient strain of vampirism that creates more monstrous creatures than the TV vampires we're used to seeing.
Stoll ("House of Cards") will play Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, who with his CDC team and New Yorkers will fight the strain and vampires to save humanity.
