As they say, it’s the end of the world as we know it… but if you’re not feeling fine, it might be because you’re succumbing to the vampire virus.  If you live in the world of ‘The Strain,’ the sweet series on the FX television network based on the books co-written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, then turning into a bloodsucking member of the undead is an all-too-real threat.

For the last three seasons, the humans have fought valiantly against the Strigoi, but they did get a late jump on trying to correct the apocalyptic course, and as Season 4 gets ready to begin, it’s certainly looking like it will be too little, too late for the good guys.  Or will it?  Only time will tell – and with the curtain falling on the series at the conclusion of the upcoming season, viewers won’t have to wait long to find out.

Take a bloody good look at the trailer for the final season below!

As the fourth and final season begins, nine months have passed. The world has fallen into darkness, and the strigoi are in control. The explosion at the end of season three triggered a global nuclear apocalypse. The resulting nuclear winter liberated the strigoi, allowing them to move about during daytime, and allowing 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 fourth and final season of ‘The Strain’ premieres on July 16, 2017 on the FX network.
