Cuse told Digital Spy, “Originally we were thinking of each book being one season,” Cuse revealed, “and then as we got into it, Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan and I talked about it being five seasons instead… We have a very definite end-point in mind,” he added. “We need to see this story come to its conclusion and I think five seasons will be just about the right amount of time.”
The Strain TV show is based on a trilogy of novels of the same name by Del Toro and Hogan. Cuse says that the plan is for the second novel to be covered in seasons two and three while the final novel will be covered in seasons four and five.
