Season 1 of The Strain Drops on Special Edition Blu-ray this June

The Strain posterThe only drawback to getting rid of cable TV in my house has been missing some shows that don’t immediately come on either Hulu or Netflix. THE STRAIN is one of those shows. TH STRAIN is a trilogy of novels written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan that was made into a TV series for the FX network. The series got solid reviews by both horror fans and fans of the novels. Check out the plot crunch of the TV series:

A thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.

Now it looks I’ll be getting the chance to catch up on this show. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is releasing the first season of THE STRAIN in a special Blu-ray collector’s edition on June 9, 2015. Read on for more details:
