FX Renews The Strain for Season 2
FX has renewed The Strain for a second season, the network announced Tuesday. Season 2 will consist of 13 episodes and is scheduled to premiere in summer 2015.
The move comes as no surprise, as The Strain is cable’s top new series of 2014 among adults 18 to 49. The show has averaged 4.5 million viewers in first-run airings this season, while the pilot drew 12.7 million total viewers with delayed and repeat viewings added, making it the most-watched series premiere in FX’s history.
