At FX’s Television Critics Association presentation, the network announced that they have renewed Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse’s vampire drama “The Strain” for a third season to air next summer.
The series is based on a trilogy of books with the first season an adaptation of the first. Del Toro says the second and third book will be two seasons each, something FX is complying with for now as they gave no immediate indication that the third season would be the last, though have said that it and any future seasons will be ten episodes each as opposed to the thirteen of the first two seasons.
The network has also ordered Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon’s comedy “Better Things” to series. C.K. will co-write, produce and direct the series about a single working actor and mother of three.
That comes at a price though with Louis C.K. taking another “extended hiatus” with his show though and there is no return date set for the comedian. It could be as little as six months, it could be as long as the Season 3-4 gap of two years.
