FX's 'The Strain' Will End After Season Four in 2017

FX has announced that The Strain will end after season four, which will air in summer 2017.

“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,” an FX exec said in a statement. “Though we’re sad to see it go, we fully support the way in which they are crafting the fourth season’s dramatic conclusion.”

The Strain was always envisioned as a limited series and it was said that the show would get between 39 and 65 episodes when it was in the pilot stage, according to Deadline.

“Our original plan was for the series to last three years,” Carlton said in a statement. “Once we began telling that story it expanded to be more. After finishing the writing on Season 3, 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 4. We are deeply grateful to FX for supporting our vision and for allowing us to end the show on our own timetable.”

    first Orphan Black and now The Strain, I’m bumped. But is definitely better to have a show end while is good than to extend it until is a sh*t show.

    I’m surprised there are more than 3 seasons as I think there are only 3 books.
