In an expected move, the cable network Tuesday ordered a 13-episode second season of the vampire drama (Sunday, 10 p.m. ET/PT). The series, which is midway through its first season, has drawn a healthy audience of young adults, ranking as 2014's top new cable series in that category. Season 2 will premiere next summer.
The Strain follows a New York team from the Centers for Disease Control, led by Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), as it battles a viral outbreak with ties to an ancient strain of vampirism that threatens humanity's survival.
