If you’ve noticed these billboards in your city and really like them, start to say your goodbyes:
FX has decided that these promotional images for their upcoming show The Strain are just a little too gross, and will be removing all of them in the coming days. In a statement, the network said that “We are in the process of replacing the key art for The Strain on outdoor media in several locations,” replacing them with something that is hopefully a bit less graphic.
Based on a book series by Chuck Hogan and directed by Guillermo Del Toro, The Strain tells the story of an epidemiologist (Corey Stoll, now with hair!) battling a virus that is turning New Yorkers into parasitic, vampire-like monsters.
There’s probably a joke to be made here, but we’re going to politely decline.
