First Trailer: The Strain Season 2 Shows off Killer Creatures



Second season all-out war is a thing. As a witch battle currently rages on Salem, the absolutely killer-looking vampires of The Strain threaten to take Manhattan. Get a load of the creatures in the first trailer for this summer’s upcoming second go at The Strain.

Having left The Strain’s first season unfinished, this new trailer and its quick looks at the series’ monsters goes a long way in making me rectify that. Based on a trilogy of novels by Guillermo del Toro & Chuck Hogan, The Strain returns this summer and “the transformation has begun. It can no longer be denied — New York City is rapidly falling to an evil epidemic, and no one is coming to its rescue.  Its citizens must fight or die. Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his unlikely allies tried to take down the embodiment of this evil — the Master — and failed.  Now Eph and Dr. Nora Martinez concentrate on creating a biological weapon to wipe out the creatures, while Abraham Setrakian searches for an ancient book he hopes will reveal the strigoi’s entire history… and possibly a way to kill them.  Meanwhile, the Master is out for revenge, sending new and even more terrifying breeds of bloodthirsty creatures after our team.  They need to find a way to defeat him before the transformation has become widespread, irreparable…Before they become monsters themselves.”

EW premiered the trailer. No premiere date, just yet.
