"We've never had any doubts about The Strain," said FX CEO John Landgraf. "Working with Guillermo del Toro, Carlton Cuse, and the brilliant cast led by Corey Stoll has been everything we had hoped it would be and more.  

"It is thrilling when you have a show that is a creative and commercial hit, which is a rare accomplishment in this increasingly crowded marketplace. We look forward having it on FX for as long as Carlton, Guillermo and Chuck Hogan need to tell this epic tale."

There are seven new episodes remaining in The Strain Season 1 (airing Sundays at 10 PM ET/PT), with the series having recorded the most-watched premiere in FX history earlier this summer.

Fitzwilliam: Been a while since I heard about the Lumen.
Setrakian: Palmer gave up on the search. Why?
Fitzwilliam: He spent a lot of time and a while lot of money only to discover that it no longer exists. That it may never have existed at all.
