Good news for fans of FX Network’s TV series The Strain as the cast and crew will be heading to San Diego Comic-Con International 2016. While panels rooms, dates and times have yet to be announced, at least we can confirm that they will be there.
Sadly American Horror Story will not be making an appearance this year, I will miss the amazing off site events they usually have to promote the series especially last year when they built a hotel to promote season 5. But more surprisingly Legion will also not be heading to San Diego Comic-Con International.
After the cliffhanger from season 2, I’m looking forward to what season 3 will bring, how will they survive a vampire apocalypse? It’s weird to say that, these days I’m more used to saying zombie apocalypse as zombies have taken over films and television in recent years. Although I’m sure the vampires in The Strain are far more terrifying than the zombies in The Walking Dead or Z Nation, at least you stand a fighting chance against the dim witted slow walkers than compared to the far more intelligent and faster vampires featured in The Strain. There’s so many questions burning in my mind about season 3, I can’t wait for what the panel may reveal.
A thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the 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, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
Below is more details about The Strain screening and panel at San Diego Comic-Con International 2016.
