On how FX will handle the trilogy, Langraf said, “It’s a trilogy, and the trilogy ends the story. It’s a truly epic story. And when Guillermo [del Toro] came in to sell it, one of the things they made clear is that they wanted to tell the story of the books. That story would be told over three, four or five seasons. They have work to do, in terms of figuring out how they are going to resituate that story, in an episodic television series, but it will be somewhere between 39 and 65 episodes. No less and no more, and I’m really excited about that. 
Cuse also commented on the timespan of the show: “Producers are looking at the series for either a three or five season run with season one covering the first book in the trilogy. Once producers break a second season — if the series is successful — they will examine if the final two books should be one season each or split up into multiple seasons.”

UPDATE: Ben Hyland who played Eph’s son Zach in season 1 has been replaced by Max Charles (The Amazing Spider-Man, American Sniper). The Strain’s showrunner and executive producer Carlton Cuse made a statement about the recasting, noting that the reason why he decided to find a new actor for the role was due to the fact that Zach will have a “deeply emotional storyline” in season two and the producers needed a young actor who had the range to accommodate such a shift.
