Season One told the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll - House of Cards, Ant-Man), the head of the Centers 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 and his unlikely band of allies - an assembly of everyday New Yorkers - wage war for the fate of humanity itself - and fail.
As Season Two unfolds, the transformation has begun. New York City is rapidly falling to an evil epidemic, and no one is coming to its rescue. Its citizens must fight or die. Now Eph and Dr. Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) concentrate on creating a biological weapon to wipe out the creatures, while Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley) searches for an ancient book he hopes will reveal the strigoi's (vampires) entire history...and possibly a way to kill them.
Meanwhile, the Master is out for revenge, unleashing new and even more terrifying breeds of bloodthirsty creatures after the team.
The team must find a way to defeat him before the infection spreads too far and becomes irreparable ... before they become monsters themselves.
The Strain returns to Watch Wednesday August 26 at 10pm.
