When will the vampire series premiere?
FX has announced the premiere dates for its summer shows. The network announced that Tyrant will stars the summer off on June 24th at 10 PM ET/PT, followed by The Bridge season two on July 9th at 10 PM ET/PT. The first season of vampire series The Strain kicks off on July 13th at 10 PM and the final season for Wilfred will begin on June 25th.
Tyrant follows the son of the dictator of a war-torn nation as he ends a self-imposed 20-year exile to return to his homeland, accompanied by his American wife and kids — only to discover that leaving isn't so easy. It stars Adam Rayner, Jennifer Finnigan, Ashraf Barhom and Moran Atias.
The Strain stars Corey Stoll, Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel Gomez and tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
