Tv Season Info

All seems lost. The strigoi have won the nuclear war that Eph (Corey Stoll) and Zach (Max Charles) triggered on Illumination Day and now rule as bloodthirsty tyrants through The Partnership. Eph's ragtag gang has scattered all over the U.S. in an effort to survive and evade strigoi persecution. The fight isn't over, however. Eph works with resistance fighters to attack strigoi nests. Quinlan (Rupert Penry-Jones) and Fet (Kevin Durand) steal a nuclear weapon. Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) and Setrakian (David Bradley) escape a blood-processing plant and resume work on the Occido Lumen. All roads lead back to Manhattan as the war between the Master (Robin Atkin Downes) and the human resistance reaches its climax. The fourth season of "The Strain" also stars Jonathan Hyde as Palmer, Richard Sammel as Eicchorst, Miguel Gomez as Gus, and Cas Anvar as Desai. Jamie Hector resumes his role as Alonso Creem. Guest stars include Angel Parker as Alex and Rhona Mitra as Charlotte.

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

This is what it's like to see The Strain firing on all cylinders, finally.

Mar 28, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

But the series found its way back to top form in its final season, its bleakest yet, as the characters reckoned with their own fates after a disaster left them ostracized from each other and utterly hopeless.

Dec 11, 2017 | Full Review…

It's obvious that all of the core cast members are spread out all over the place, but are still in touch to some degree, with each working towards a specific goal.

Indeed, it feels like the show is preparing to tie everything together into a satisfying end that rewards all who stuck it out for the four year run.

The Strain proved rewarding in its finality, allowing characters who had endured the threat, lost loved ones and bravely faced a supernatural foe a hard-earned ray of hope.

Most of the worst aspects of this episode were things that have annoyed me throughout the series. And yet, there were plenty of facets of the series finale that worked really well

Dec 11, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The Strain, created by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan and run by the longtime producer Carlton Cuse, is a prime example of traditional, meticulous craftsmanship and slow-building suspense.

Jul 17, 2017 | Full Review…

With the end finally on the horizon, there's a sense that because it's all coming to an end anyway, The Strain can finally throw caution to the wind and really let its freak flag fly.

Jul 17, 2017 | Full Review…

While fairly slow starting out, The Strain's fourth season eventually built to a satisfying conclusion as it rearranged the playing field and explored the far-reaching effects of the Master's rise to power.
