The series is slated for 39 episodes with the first 13 slated to premiere immediately, followed by another 13 in September, and the last 13 next spring. The companies will decide whether to expand the series to a total of 52 episodes after the MIPCOM trade show in October.
41 Entertainment CEO Allen Bohbot said that several broadcasters want to air the series on a daily schedule, and they can with the show's extended 39-episode length. Bohbot expects the show to continue into 2015.
