Wetpaint Visits The Strain — See Photos From the Set of FX’s New Vampire Show Before Sunday’s Premiere

Vampires are taking over New York City with the premiere of The Strain on FX this Sunday, July 13 — the new show from Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, based on their hit book trilogy — but the locales you'll see on screen are actually parts of Toronto filling in for the Big Apple!

Wetpaint Entertainment got a chance to go to the Ontario city in March to visit the set and to tour some of the humans' homebases — and, in one case, that of a recent-human. (No spoilers!)

The new series starts with an airliner incident that, at first glance, seems like the work of a ferocious virus. But the CDC researchers who respond soon realize that the virus is actually vampire in nature and that they're now caught up in a centuries-old battle.

The Strain premieres Sunday, July 13, at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
