"Honestly, I've always said it's four or five seasons, and I've said that because I think it's somewhere in between,” Sam Esmail tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Whether that means the next two seasons are two short seasons, or it could technically still be two full ten-episode seasons, we're still kind of figuring that out. It's something the writers' room and I take very seriously. We never want to feel like we're treading water. Hopefully it fits into two more seasons, but we're trying to figure out that number.” ALSO: Esmail on Season 3: “What’s interesting about the third season is that it comes pretty close to being the end of act two."
