Season four of the FX series The Strain
, premieres Sunday, July 17th. The season premiere picks up nine months after the events of last season. The explosion caused by Eph (Corey Stoll)'s son Zach (Max Charles) started a global nuclear winter, allowing the strigoi to move in daylight. The Master, having now taken the body of Eldritch Palmer (Jonathan Hyde), has created an alliance in "The Partnership," a ruse that provides free food and medical; however they don't take kindly to those who refuse to collaborate.
Separated, each of the characters must work to fight the Master's regime and try to save humanity. Eph works to find a way to cripple the strigoi, while Fet (Kevin Durand) and Quinlin (Rupert Penry-Jones) look for a nuclear bomb to turn the tide, while Setrakian (David Bradley) and Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) face their own problems.
Yesterday, showrunner Carlton Cuse talked to the media about what's to come in season four and closing out the series.
