The first episode, written by Del Toro and Hogan, of the series premieres on FX this Sunday (13th July). We are set to see a plane land at John F. Kennedy airport with two hundred of its passengers dead and only four survivors. A team of scientists is called in to figure out how exactly the seemingly untouched passengers died and when the bodies begin to mysteriously disappear from morgues across the city, it becomes obvious they are dealing with a outbreak of vampires. 

Corey Stoll stars as one of the scientists, Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, who is the focus of the series. As Associated Press reports, 38-year-old Stoll is highly enthusiastic about The Strain and claimed it featured aspects of the vampire and horror genre we have yet to encounter. He said "I've never seen a lot of the stuff we'll be doing. And there's a unique tone: a mix of goofiness and melancholy."

Also joining Stoll in the series are David Bradley (Game of Thrones), Kevin Durand (Robin Hood), Mia Maestro (Twilight: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2), Jonathan Hyde (Anaconda) and  Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings trilogy). 

Stoll is best known for his role in Netflix's House of Cards in which he starred in the first season as U.S. Representative Peter Russo. He has appeared in numerous films including Midnight in Paris and The Bourne Legacy, but The Strain looks as though it could push him well and truly into the spotlight. He's also set to guest star in Homeland's upcoming and final season and has a small part in Black Mass (starring Johnny Depp and Benedict Cumberbatch). 

The Strain airs on FX on Sunday 13th July at 10pm.
