The Strain: Season Three Ratings

Published: November 1, 2016

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.

The Strain: Season Four Ratings

Published: September 19, 2017

Fans don’t have to worry that FX will cancel The Strain TV show, but only because in September of 2016, the cable network announced the last renewal was for a fourth and final season. Although the show is ending, we’re still tracking the ratings because it’s fun, and because it gives us a benchmark for the performance of other FX TV series. So while we don’t have to wonder if The Strain will be cancelled or renewed for season five, stay tuned.

Based on the novel trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, The Strain is a vampire horror drama starring Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Jonathan Hyde, Kevin Durand, Ruta Gedmintas, Miguel Gomez, Richard Sammel, Max Charles, and Rupert Penry-Jones. Season four kicks off on FX, nine months after the end of the third season. The strigoi are now controlling a world that has plunged into darkness. While the Master works to end the world as we know it, the white hats are struggling to save the human race.

In the changing world of television, TV execs look at many factors when deciding to renew or cancel a show. However, the ratings remain important. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. While The Strain will end with season four, its ratings can play into whether or not there will be a reunion or revival. They also help us gauge which other FX TV shows will be cancelled or renewed. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
