The final episode count for The Strain has been revealed.
Cuse has also confirmed that the final three seasons of The Strain will each comprise 10 episodes – down from 13 in the first two seasons.
On the decision to end The Strain after five seasons, Cuse said:
“From the very beginning, we had really talked about the first book being the first season, the second book being the next two seasons and the third book the last two seasons. We’ve stuck to that game plan.”
Which means that, all being well, The Strain will have told its complete story in 56 episodes.
