The first season of the FX horror series The Strain, created by Guillermo del Toro, was a fun and action-packed take on the downfall of civilization at the hands of a virulent vampire plague. The series had knockout creature effects and put a unique spin on vampire mythology, taking a truly monstrous approach to the blood-sucking beasts. It also featured Corey Stoll in a wig. Steve recently caught up with showrunner Carlton Cuse at the junket for San Andreas and was able to speak with him briefly about the second season. While season one followed Stoll's band of survivors as they came to terms with the reality of vampires, the second season will see them go on the offense, and from the sound of it, it may see the end of Stoll's hair piece too. Check out their conversation and some quotes below and be aware there major season one spoilers. »

FX announced yesterday that the second season of The Strain, its hit vampire thriller series, will premiere July 12 at 10 p.m.
The series, from showrunner Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and co-creators Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Crimson Peak) and Chuck Hogan (Prince of Thieves – which was adapted into The Town), centers on the efforts of a ragtag band of heroes led by a Cdc scientist (Corey Stoll) to defeat a vampire epidemic spreading through New York City. In the second season, the team’s attempt to defeat the all-powerful Master has failed, and the epidemic continues to spread. With no backup and a limited amount of time to end the madness once and for all, it’s up to the citizens of NYC to fight or die.

Kevin Durand is one of those actors you've seen but might not be able to place by name, mostly because he's usually the supporting player. The really great supporting bit player, the one you whose face you always remember. Of late Durand has been booking bigger gigs, including a more prominent role in "The Strain," but in Dark Was the Night, Durand is front and centre.
Jack Heller's second feature is a small town horror movie about a sheriff (Durand) and his deputy (Lukas Haas), both of whom are struggling with their personal demons, find themselves trying to protect their idyllic town from the monster that is inhabiting the nearby woods.
It's not clear if this is simply an a bear or other animal with anger issues or some supernatural creature (the poster suggests the latt [Continued ...] »

In Dark Was the Night, Maiden Woods is a remote and quiet town of decent hard-working people, but something stirs in the dark woods surrounding this isolated community. After a logging company decimates…

"Something lives in our woods... And it's looking for food, and it found us." Put away the children, and hide under the floorboards. Image Entertainment has debuted a full trailer for the film Dark Was the Night, a small-town horror thriller about a sheriff who struggles to handle a "new breed of raw terror" found in their woods. Kevin Durand stars along with Lukas Haas and Steve Agee in this very dark, very indie thriller that has an intriguing slow burn werewolf, or monster movie, vibe to it. I'm always glad to see Kevin Durand in more and more challenging roles, especially a lead role, but I'm not sure there is much substance to this one beyond the monsters-within theme. It might be worth a look, give it a shot especially if you like horror. Here's the first official trailer for Jack Heller's Dark Was the Night, direct from »

TV Worth Watching
"Mad Men" (Sunday on AMC at 10 p.m.)
It's the end of an era. Pour yourself an Old Fashioned and toast the end of "Mad Men," 'cause Don Draper leaves us on May 17. Farewell, Don/Dick, Peggy, Joan, Roger, and -- wherever she is -- Lois the foot-crushing secretary. #TeamLois4Life
"Scandal" (Thursday on ABC at 9 p.m.)
"Scandal" is so devoted to its own name that every episode feels like a season finale. But the real end of Season 4 happens May 14 with "You Can't Take Command." ABC promises it will be "shocking" and since it's "Scandal," we believe it.

FX’s The Strain was one of the more enjoyable shows of last summer, a knowingly ridiculous but still deliciously creepy thriller about the spread of a vampire epidemic through modern New York City. After a crazy cliffhanger of a season finale in which the ancient Master escaped the clutches of vampire hunters including Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley) and Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the series will finally be returning at some point this summer, and FX has allowed the first footage from season 2 to escape quarantine (via EW).
Though the first season mostly saw the vampire epidemic spread quietly underground, that’s definitely no longer the case. “We’re going to take back this island one block at a time,” a city councilwoman (fresh face Samantaha Mathis) declares to the human survivors. The Master and his army of strigoi aren’t going to make that easy, but at least she »

“Vikings has raided the hearts of both audiences and critics, establishing itself as one of the most compelling, visually stunning dramas on television,” History Gm Dirk Hoogstra said in a statement. “We are so proud of our immensely talented cast and crew led by [series creator] Michael Hirst, whose intriguing storylines and pivotal arcs have the perfect balance of scope, smarts and »
On the March 5 episode of History Channel’s “Vikings,” Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) and his allies will make good on their deal with King Ecbert (Linus Roache) and march into battle with Mercia. Ragnar and his fellow raiders have been spoiling for a fight, but the clash might not be enough to prevent other tensions from bubbling up.
Variety has an exclusive sneak peek at the bloodthirsty battle from this week’s episode below — will all of our warriors escape unscathed?
Ragnar’s deal with Ecbert and Kwenthrith (Amy Bailey) once again puts him at odds with Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard), who mistrusts the Christians’ motives. Fimmel says that the friction between the pair “carries throughout the whole year again. [Floki’s’] very religiously driven — we all are. The gods are the most important things, but I think Ragnar’s opinion on it is, ‘I’ll do whatever I can to please the gods, »

It was, literally, a dream come true on History’s Vikings (Thursdays, 10/9c) when the mystery man that Queen Aslaug, Siggy and Helga each saw during their sleep set foot in Kattegatt, his dripping blood smoldering in the snow.
What effect might this Wanderer, Harbard, have on the women while Ragnar, Rollo and Floki are off fighting? (While the proverbial cats are away, will the mice play…?) Kevin Durand (The Strain, Lost) previewed his visit to Kattegat and its lasting reverberations.

History's "Vikings" returns for its third season on Thursday (February 19) night and through three episodes, I can safely say that Michael Hirst's saga of pillaging and migration remains everything it has been almost from its premiere. Over two seasons, "Vikings" has delivered solidly above-average thrills that exceed the requirements of its basic cable home. The show has a passionate audience already, but I'm reasonably sure there's a far larger audience out there that would get a kick out of "Vikings," because it really is one of those shows that check a wide number of demographic boxes. "Vikings" is reliably badass, if you like that sort of thing. Maybe not every episode, but probably every two or three, the directors and choreographers deliver a visceral Viking action set-piece that has both admirable scale, but also a raw, gory intimacy. Perhaps more than any other action show on television, "Vikings" conveys »

History’s investment in dramatic programming has yielded mixed results, but its best, enduring franchise, arguably, has been “Vikings,” which sails into its third season with considerable assurance and gusto. Showrunner Michael Hirst has managed to craft a compelling serialized storyline around the exploits of the Norsemen and their crafty leader, Ragnar Lothbrok, whose travels this time will eventually lead him to France. For now, though, Ragnar and company are busily trying to carve out a mutually beneficial relationship with the English King of Wessex, with ample bloodletting, lust and betrayal to go around.
The determination of Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) to improve the Vikings’ lives not through pillaging but farming, somewhat mystify his compatriots. But in the nothing-is-ever-easy department, King Ecbert (Linus Roache) needs Ragnar’s martial skills to help solidify his power, resulting in the inevitable bloody battles in the early episodes. Few programs, notably, do a better job »

Recently, TV Line delivered their latest spoiler chat session and dished out new spoiler intel for the upcoming "Vikings" season 3, episode 2. It turns out that we're going to see Kevin Durand's Harbard character really pique the interests of a couple of characters since he showed up in their dreams. He's also going to show up in town with one hand dripped in scalding blood, and more. In their spoiler chat reveal, here's what they had to say when asked about the Harbard character: " Before he ever sets foot in Kattegat, the Strain star’s mysterious Wanderer will have piqued the interests of Siggy, Helga and Queen Aslaug, since he appeared to each of them in dreams, arriving in town with his arms outstretched and one hand dripping scalding blood. So you can imagine the reaction when this happens in Episode 2:" Episode 2 is set to air on Thursday night, »
