FX have released the first full trailer for The Strain.

The Strain is a new series created by Hellboy’s Guillermo Del Toro that centers around a team of scientists who will be waging a war against an ancient strain that confers vampirism, along with those it infects. From the look of the first trailer, it has an incredible amount of potential, and could bring horror to new levels on cable television, especially with Guillermo del Toro on board to oversee the direction of the series.

Del Toro has written and directed the pilot and had a hand in the writing of the scripts that were used for the first season of the show. The day to day show runner is Bates Motel and Lost alum Carlton Cuse.

The series stars Corey Stoll, Sean Astin, Natalie Brown, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde, Mia Maestro, Robert Maillet and Miguel Gomez.

The Strain premieres on FX on July 13th.
