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.
