Description: It can no longer be denied — New York City is rapidly falling to an evil epidemic, and no one is coming to its rescue. Its citizens must fight or die.  Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his unlikely allies tried to take down the embodiment of this evil — the Master — and failed. Now Eph and Dr. Nora Martinez concentrate on creating a biological weapon to wipe out the creatures, while Abraham Setrakian searches for an ancient book he hopes will reveal the strigoi’s entire history…and possibly a way to kill them. Meanwhile, the Master is out for revenge, unleashing new and even more terrifying breeds of bloodthirsty creatures. They need to find a way to defeat him before the infection spreads too far and becomes irreparable…before they become monsters themselves. fxnetworks.com

Season End Status:  This show’s numbers were at all time lows in its third season, but it was given the nod for a fourth and final year which will air in 2017. Allegedly that that was a creative decision and the producers supposedly wanted to wrap up the show with its third year.  Four seasons will give it a binge-worthy run, though, and allow it to wrap up its major storylines.
