Plans to wrap up a cable drama series were revealed Tuesday, with the show to air its final season in summer 2017. FX announced its plans for a fourth and final season of “The Strain,” which is currently airing its third season.
Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, announced the news today.
Said Grad: “We sincerely thank Carlton Cuse, Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan and their creative team as well as the fantastic cast for three exciting seasons of ‘The Strain.’ Though we’re sad to see it go, we fully support the way in which they are crafting the fourth season’s dramatic conclusion.”
Added Cuse: “It is a true joy to work at FX where creative intentions always comes first. Our original plan was for the series to last three years. Once we began telling that story it expanded to be more. After finishing the writing on season three, Guillermo, Chuck and I looked at our remaining story and felt the best version could be told in one more season. We have a fantastic plan for an exciting and climatic season four. We are deeply grateful to FX for supporting our vision and for allowing us to end the show on our own timetable.”
