Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of the CDC's New York-based Canary Project, is called upon to investigate when an airplane lands with everybody on board dead. What his team discovers is a viral outbreak that has similarities to an ancient strain of vampirism. As the virus begins to spread, Goodweather works with his team and a group of the city's residents to wage a war that could hold humanity's fate in its hand. The show's executive producers include Oscar-nominated writer Guillermo del Toro and Emmy-winning producer Carlton Cuse.
It's not always easy being a fan of "The Strain". Unfortunately, the show too often struggles to live up to its full potential, with lackluster characterization and inane storylines dragging down a generally good tale of humanity fighting a losing battle against an apocalyptic outbreak. That was true for the show's first season, and despite some improvements it remained true for the second. Despite all these complaints, the show still offered plenty of entertainment when it wasn't getting bogged down by nonsense. This season also excelled when it came to keeping the villains fresh and exciting.--Jesse Shedeen, IGN, October 14, 2015
