A haunted tv series, The Strain, is one of the finest works created by the duo, Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. With widespread popularity and acceptance from the audience, the makers renewed the series four times consecutively. Is there still more to watch?
A Peek Into The Storyline
The creepy story begins with a haunted flight landing at the John F Kennedy airport, with all lights turned off and all doors shut. A renowned epidemiologist, Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, and his team are sent to the spot to investigate it. With all their findings they discover 200 dead bodies and 4 survivors amidst the corpses inside the flight.
The situation turns wilder, with a report that corpses are going missing from the morgues. The team tries its best to save the city from the upcoming danger that is about to hit hard.
Further, as the story progresses, it becomes clearer as to why only 4 survivors were found amidst 200 dead and what would be the ultimate destination of those who were fighting this terrible situation. The thrill and the excitement of the show are amazingly directed to keep the viewers hooked to the screen even till the 4th season.
The Strain starred Stoll, who played the lead role of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather. Originally, the role of the pilot Abraham Setrakian was given to John Hurt. Initially, he did play the role, but later he left, and then the role was recast to David Bradley. Finally, the team had to shoot again with Bradley as Abraham. Vasiliy Fet is well played by Kevin Durand who had also acted in a well-known show Lost.
Kelly Goodweather had been originally given to Lauren Lee Smith. However, he couldn’t continue and it was given to Natalie Brown. For the character of Jim Kent, another great actor Sean Astin. The recurring role of Zach Goodweather was done by Ben Hyland in the first series. Whereas from the second series, he was replaced by Max Charles.
Every member of the team of actors and actresses has done a commendable job by playing their respective part. Without their dedicated contribution it would have been impossible for the show to fetch its fans.

Season 4 which aired in July 2017 stood as the closure of the show. The streaming partner FX had announced much before that this season would be the final season of the show. It is disappointing, yet the fact that The Strain is no longer going to return.
