Less than a month, folks. Less than a month, and our Sundays will be perfect once again with the return of The Strain for its fourth and final season. With the exception of a few short promos, not much has been released on the series’ final hoorah, but fortunately, this weekend the first season 4 photos were posted along with the official titles and synopses of the first 3 episodes. Check them out below. Oh yes, there are even a few photos of Gus, who has been completely absent from the promos thus far. I am so digging his new look! And, let us not forget about Palmer as the new Master. For those who may have had reservations about whether Eldridge would make a worthy Master, I think these photos should put those doubts to rest because he makes for one scary son-of-a-bitch!
The Strain will return for season 4 on July 16th at 10/9c on FX.
