While The Strain was recently renewed for a third season, producer Carlton Cuse says that the plan is for the FX series to run for five seasons.
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.
What do you think? Are you a fan of The Strain TV show? How long do you think the FX series should run?
I also purchased season one on Blu-ray
I have watched every single episode and I am hooked I love it have been trying to turn other people on my two sisters and two of my nephews are now hooked can’t wait for next Week
The writers on this show need to take a refresher course in Dialogue 101. Lately, it sucks.
Five seasons if the ratings hold out that is
I THINK A LOT OF SHOWS START OUT VERY GOOD AND SOMEHOW AFTER A FEW SEASON LOSE TRACK OF THE ORIGINAL STORY AND IT SOMETIMES CAN GET VERY RIDICULOUS WITH STORY LINES. I THINK THERE MUST BE A BIG TURNOVR WITH WRITERS AND TV SHOW PRODUCERS WHO LOSE THE CONTEXT OF THE ORIGINAL STORY LINE. I WOULD MUCH RATHER WATCH A VERY GOOD SHOW,WITH ALL THE SUB PLOTS AND A VERY GOOD ENDING. . THE STRAIN HAS CHARACTERS YOU LIKE AND CARE ABOUT AND A GOOD STORYLINE THAT IS CONSTANTLY SURPRISING, IN SOME OF THE SHOWS THAT ARE DRAGGED ON… Read more »
I am so psyched about the Strain running through to the end, love this show!! Keep up the good work y’all!!!
Strain is a very exciting tv series. I loved the books and the tv series is just as good.
This show is great and I hope by 5 seasons I have my fill! But right now I love the strain and want as much as I can keep!
I believe that 5 seasons for this show is perfect. The powers that be on other shows should take notice of the fine planning exhibited by these folks and follow suit. At least these guys aren’t gonna leave the masses hanging as so many others have done before … my opinion, thanks …
I agree that so many shows would be much better if they went in with a full plan to the end, rather than making it up as they go along (cough*Lost*cough). At least for sci-fi and fantasy.
i love the strain so sick of sexy vampires please del toro have been a fan for along time stretch it dont end love all the characters sad about the deaths but write!
