The final episode count for The Strain has been revealed.


FX announced the third season renewal of the horror drama on Friday, with executive producerCarlton Cuse reiterating that the show will end after Season 5.
Cuse has also confirmed that the final three seasons of The Strain will each comprise 10 episodes – down from 13 in the first two seasons.
On the decision to end The Strain after five seasons, Cuse said:
“From the very beginning, we had really talked about the first book being the first season, the second book being the next two seasons and the third book the last two seasons. We’ve stuck to that game plan.”
Which means that, all being well, The Strain will have told its complete story in 56 episodes.

Regina King Joins 'The Strain' In A Recurring Role
Regina King has nabbed a recurring role on the supernatural series as Ruby Wain, the smart and accomplished manager of philandering rock star Gabriel Bolivar (Jack Kesy). No further details about her character have been released, however, given the fact that the show centers around a highly contagious virus that turns humans into bloodthirsty vampires when infected, there's a good chance King could fall victim to the undead epidemic. The Strain is set to debut in July 2014.

David Bradley, an alum of Game of Thrones and the Harry Potter franchise, among scores of other films, has been selected for the role of Setrakian. The show is currently looking at a July 2014 release date.
