There is a latest update on The Strain season 4 and it is not something which will leave its fans happy. However, it’s official that season 4 is happening. What caused the series’ cancellation? Here are some points to consider.
The good news by FX for fans is that it has started the new run of The Strain, which is halfway through its third season.
What is upsetting is when FX made the announcement about the end of the series with this statement: “We sincerely thank Carlton Cuse, Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan and their creative team, as well as the fantastic cast for three exciting seasons of The Strain,” conveyed Nick Grad, the president of original programming for FX Networks. “Though we’re sad to see it go, we fully support the way in which they are crafting the fourth season’s dramatic conclusion.” Therefore, it is indeed a bad news that The Strain season 4 will be the last season of the vampire-apocalypse show.
One of the reasons behind its conclusion, as mentioned by Cuse is that originally he planned the series to be for just three seasons, following the original novels co-written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan which were a trilogy.
What is interesting here is that in July, there were talks of The Strain making it to season 5. However, that isn’t the case anymore. According to Cuse, Hogan, and Del Toro came to the conclusion to close The Strain in 2017.
In Cuse words: “After finishing the writing on Season 3, Guillermo, Chuck and I looked at our remaining story and felt the best version could be told in one more season. We have a fantastic plan for an exciting and climatic Season 4. We are deeply grateful to FX for supporting our vision and for allowing us to end the show on our own timetable,” reports Deadline.
