Abraham Setrakian's Pawn Shop in The Strain
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.
