The supernatural drama takes place in a New York City that’s been overrun by vampires. The cast includes Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Kevin Durand, Ruta Gedmintas, Richard Sammel, Max Charles, and Samantha Mathis. Season three just finished last week.
In the interview, Cuse revealed the atomic bomb set off at the end of season three will factor in season four:
Yeah, that is absolutely the kind of seminal event of Season 3 that sets up the preconditions for Season 4. Although we’re not sort of telling the audience what the consequences of that bomb going off are until Season 4, I think it’s fair to say that they are massive and completely world-changing.”
He also confirmed that Kelly is indeed dead:
Yes, Kelly [Natalie Brown] is really dead. I mean, Ephraim did kill her. It’s entirely possible that we would see her again in Season 4, but it would be in like flashbacks or some other form of storytelling.”
Cuse later explained that the final season will be “radically different”:
Well, the show is based on this trilogy of books written by Guillermo and Chuck. The third book in the trilogy takes place in sort of a post-apocalyptic nuclear winter. In terms of how many survivors there are and what conditions they live in, I definitely don’t want to spoil all that but they are living in a profoundly different world and that’s exciting. The final season is really the third chapter in the story and although it’s radically different on a storytelling level than the third book, it shares some fundamental similarities.”
