A new viral video for the forthcoming FX series The Strain has been teased during the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead.
The promo features “found footage” of rats gathering in public places.
The Strain is based on the novel by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, with the pilot episode being directed by the former.
The tale is a high concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), 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.
Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel Gomez also star in the series which airs next July.
