When a Boeing 777 arrives at JFK International Airport, makes its way across the tarmac, and suddenly stops dead, crews on the ground are lost for answers. All window shades are pulled down. All lights are out. All communication channels have gone quiet.

An alert goes out to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) where Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Stoll), gets the call and boards the plane along with his colleague Dr. Nora Martinez (Maestro). On board they find 206 corpses, 4 survivors and, if that wasn’t foreboding enough, evidence of some peculiar ultraviolet secretion. The situation becomes ever more perplexing when they are approached by the eccentric Abraham Setrakian (Bradley), an elderly Harlem pawnbroker who insists the victims’ bodies must be destroyed and that the elaborately carved coffin that was removed from the plane’s hold must not leave the airport.

When an airport official is killed by an enormous human-like creature that uses a throat appendage to suck out its victim’s blood, the CDC must consider the unthinkable; what is first assumed to be an unidentified viral infection, is just the beginning of something far more monstrous. What was presumed dead, may have just been dormant…

Since its debut The Strain has picked up a 2014 Critics Choice Award for Exciting New Series and in the US it has become the most-watched new 1-hour series in FX’s history.

Special features on the release include three featurettes: A Novel Approach, Setrakian’s Lair and In the Beginning…
