When asked where they see the show going and if they envision another season with the same characters, the answer was “yes!”
“The answer is yes and yes. We definitely are hopeful to go several more seasons,” said Levy. “And the plan is to continue with this set of characters while introducing a few critical key new ones next season. So I’ll just say that a lot of the big mysteries get answered at the end of Season 1, but we are very much kind of unearthing new problems and questions that merit future stories and future investigation in the most enjoyable way.”

The cast has been praised by multiple critics, and Levy agrees that the ensemble is amazing, “We are in love with our cast and our characters. Things end up being resolved to some extent at the end of Season 1, but not entirely. And that’s why we’re so hopeful we get another few seasons to live with these people a little longer.”
While the drama has yet to be renewed by Netflix, they are hopeful they will get to create more episodes. Of course, it also helps that you have Stephen King’s tweet as an indicator that they’re on the right track. “That tweet,” said Cohen talking about author’s response to the series. “I mean he is the influence of all influences, alongside [Steven] Spielberg. That tweet went out an hour or two before the premiere Monday night and the brothers couldn’t have loved that more, and certainly started the whole wave of press off nicely. So it was pretty awesome.”
