FX has released the first promo for The Strain Season 2. You can check out the trailer above for the creepy original series that premieres Season 2 this Summer.  

The Strain stars Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Sean Astin, Jack Kesy, Natalie Brown, Miguel Gomez and Ben Hyland. 

The American horror drama series premiered Season 1 on FX in July 2014. It was created by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, based on their novel trilogy of the same name. Carlton Cuse serves as executive producer and showrunner. Del Toro and Hogan wrote the pilot episode, "Night Zero", which del Toro directed. 

Show Premise: A plane lands at John F. Kennedy International Airport with the lights off and doors sealed. Epidemiologist Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and his team are sent to investigate. On board they find 206 corpses and four survivors. The situation deteriorates when all the bodies disappear from the morgue. Goodweather and a small group of helpers find themselves battling to protect not only their own loved ones, but the entire city, from an ancient threat to humanity.

In August 2014, FX renewed The Strain for a 13-episode second season, with production set to begin in November 2014. No official release date has been set for the premiere of Season 2, but fans can look forward to a Summer 2015 release. 

In an interesting twist, the original key art for the series prominently featured a worm, a vector of the vampiric virus, burrowing into a person's eye. Following complaints from members of the public, FX announced that they would replace the artwork on several of their billboards.
