Gory tale of New York: is Guillermo del Toro's The Strain worth catching? - The Guardian - by Theguardian
The Strain juggles characters from all over New York’s five boroughs to imply the potential scope of the outbreak, and later interrupts the ticking clock of the contagion with flashbacks to Setrakian’s formative experiences during the second world war. The storytelling can sometimes seem as chaotic as the streets of New York during the eclipse. But if the intention was to emulate the success of The Walking Dead by delivering icky body horror and shock deaths against an increasingly apocalyptic backdrop, Del Toro seems happy to pile them on.

As the fourth and final season begins, nine months have passed. The world has fallen into darkness, and the strigoi are in control. The explosion at the end of season three triggered a global nuclear apocalypse. The resulting nuclear winter liberated the strigoi, allowing them to move about during daytime, and allowing the Master to establish a totalitarian regime. Preying on the fears of the populace, the Master and his minions have created an unsettling alliance in “The Partnership.” The majority of humans are now working for the strigoi, operating with a single understanding — collaborate or die. With the world in disarray and our heroes disbanded, each of them will have to overcome personal hardship and defy death for even the smallest chance at fighting back… All the while, the Master reigns supreme, furthering his scheme for the end of the world as we know it. In the face of annihilation…do our heroes have what it takes to save humankind?
