The final chapter of The Strain now has a start date.

The fourth and final season of the FX vampire thriller will premiere Sunday, July 16 at 10/9c, the network announced Tuesday. FX revealed that Season 4 will be the show’s last when it renewed The Strain last September.

From executive producers Carlton Cuse and Guillermo del Toro, The Strain stars Corey Stoll (House of Cards) and David Bradley (Game of Thrones) and is set in a dystopian New York City where humans fight against a viral outbreak connected to an ancient strand of vampirism. Season 3 ended with a (literal) bang as an explosion triggered a global nuclear apocalypse, with the resulting nuclear winter allowing the vampires to roam free and take over.

Thankfully for fans, The Strain‘s final season wasn’t completely unexpected: Cuse told TVLine’s Matt Mitovich last year that “we are definitely moving towards an ending” as they began to develop stories for Season 4, allowing them to wrap things up in satisfying fashion.

FX has announced a premiere date for the fourth and final season of its dystopian vampire thriller "The Strain."
