Last year, The Strain on FX saw a huge drop in the ratings — falling by 40% when compared to season one. This time around, there are only 10 episodes. Could fewer episodes impact the ratings in a positive way? Will the show be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Stay tuned.
On The Strain, New York City has become a battleground as humans fight for survival during the rapidly growing vampire apocalypse. Written off by the federal government, that can no longer support or protect the overrun city, the question is who will win? Humans or strigoi? The large cast includes Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Kevin Durand, Ruta Gedmintas, Richard Sammel, Max Charles, Samantha Mathis, Rupert Penry-Jones, Miguel Gomez, and Joaquin Cosio.
In the changing world of television, TV execs look at many factors when deciding to renew or cancel a show. However, the ratings are still very important. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
