Season 4 of The Strain will be its last, as the FX drama will wrap in 2017, Variety reports.

The series is currently in the middle of its third season, and its return next summer will mark the conclusion to the series, which began in 2014. Filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro has served as a writer and executive producer on the series along with Chuck Hogan; Lost's Carlton Cuse serves as the series’ showrunner.

Cuse says in a statement:

“It is a true joy to work at FX where creative intentions always comes first. Our original plan was for the series to last three years. Once we began telling that story it expanded to be more. After finishing the writing on season three, Guillermo, Chuck and I looked at our remaining story and felt the best version could be told in one more season. We have a fantastic plan for an exciting and climatic season four. We are deeply grateful to FX for supporting our vision and for allowing us to end the show on our own timetable.”

Season 3 of The Strain continues through Oct. 30.
