In a statement from creator and showrunner Jim Mickle, he expressed his gratitude about creating a “story that [he] imagined [they] would tell and in a lot of ways it [has taken] on its own life.” He went on to explain that their original vision for the show was to showcase the “big pieces of the comic book,” while the “beauty of long-form storytelling and Gus’ journey over 24 episodes is the characters themselves tell you what they want to be.”

Mickle then divulged the idea for Season 3, saying it “is an Arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic tale. Gus is going to see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in season one or two.”
