FX’s supernatural thrill The Strain returns for its third season with New York City having been abandoned by the rest of the country (giving the old ‘You’re on your own, goodnight’ joke a chilling new level of meaning).

Still, the city has Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley),  Vasiliy Fet (Kevin Durand) and others working to find a way to destroy the strigoi. So there’s that.

The Strain returns to FX on Sunday, August 28th (10/9C). For a few haunting hints about lies ahead for our fearless vampire hunters, follow the jump.

The “Munchers” are Ba-ack!

Season 3 of FX’s chilling drama series The Strain debuts on Sunday, August 28 at 10 PM ET/PT 

The Strain is a high concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the former head of the Center for Disease Control, Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers wage war for the fate of humanity itself.

As season three begins, New York City is a battleground. Written off by the federal government, the people of New York City must fight for survival on their own. The question is: who will win, humans of strigoi?

Our heroes win victories, but are not winning the war. Beset by personal conflicts – betrayal, disappointment, paranoia – our group is splintering… Meanwhile, the Master is close to executing an irreversible transformation of the world. Is there still hope to save the city and humanity?

The Strain hails from Showrunner/Executive Producer/Director/Writer Carlton Cuse, along with Co-Creators/Executive Producers/Writers Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Gary Ungar, J. Miles Dale, Bradley Thompson, David Weddle and Regina Corrado also serve as Executive Producers. The series, based on del Toro and Hogan’s best-selling The Strain Trilogy, is produced by FX Productions.
