Created by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, based on their book series by the same name, The Strain stars Corey Stoll as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York. He and his team are called upon to investigate a strange outbreak "with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism." The story has Eph and his team, along with a bunch of New Yorkers, trying to get to the bottom of the situation as the strain begins to spread. Carlton Cuse will serve as the series' showrunner. In addition to Stoll, the cast includes David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Mia Maestro, Jonathan Hyde, Sean Astin and Francis Capra, among others.
