Last summer Guillermo Del Toro’s tv horror drama, The Strain delivered an impressive 8 million viewers on its first episode.This is another television show that is based off a book trilogy written by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan.The show is centered around Dr.Ephraim Goodweather, who is the head of the Centers for Disease Control Canary Team. Goodweather and his colleagues are called in to investigate a plane that had landed at the airport, but had no lights on and nobody had exited the plane. Upon further inspection, it appears that all passengers except four are dead. Against the wishes of Dr. Goodweather, those four survivors are released to their families, which eventually leads to an outbreak.
I haven’t read the books, but from what I hear, the television shows strays a little from the books. I really enjoyed last season, although I do believe there is room for improvement, and with the success of the first season, I hope we get to see that improvement this season. The Verdicts In decided that we enjoyed where the story was headed, so we are going to cover season 2. At this time we will not have an instant cast for this show, but we will do a full recap within 48hrs after the episode airs.
If you haven’t had a chance to watch season 1, episodes are available to purchase on Google play, iTunes, and Amazon. Hopefully they will have a season 1 marathon before season 2 starts.
The official premier date for season two has not been announced, but if it is anything like last season, it will premiere mid- July. I will provide an update once it is given. In the mean time, a new trailer has just been released and is listed below.
Let us know in the comment section what you think of The Strain series, or what you think of the trailer.
