After the immense success of the Harry Potter series, author JK Rowling wrote three novels featuring a private detective under a pseudonym. 'The Cuckoo's Calling', 'The Silkworm' and 'A career of Evil', written under the moniker Robert Galbraith, feature a London private detective named Cormoran Strike. The books became global bestsellers, and it came as no surprise when BBC announced plans to adapt all three into a 7-episode series. 'C.B Strike' has just crossed over to the US thanks to Cinemax. And since the American network picked it up earlier this month the show has been getting raving reviews since.

The Executive Producer of Bronte Film and Television, Ruth Kenley-Letts just recently implied in an interview that they could actually have a couple of more seasons for the series, other than the existing three. "Just as a reader of the books, it seems fairly clear to me that what Jo has written, as Robert Galbraith, is a love story between two characters. She’s clearly a master of spinning stories, and spinning them out into the right length, and her intention has always been to write a handful of these stories.

"As long as she feels that that relationship is alive, exciting, and fresh, I think she’ll continue. I think there will be a number of books. She’s been quoted as saying that she’s got 7 to 9 Strike books that she can imagine writing. Whether it will end up being five, six or nine, I don’t know, but I would put money on a bet that she will make us all wait for quite a few books before that relationship between the two of them is resolved," said Letts, speaking to Collider. 

She also revealed that the actors were also quite happy with the show. "Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger really enjoyed working on the first three books. They made a great couple, and they're lovely people who are very committed to the characters. My theory as a producer is that, if you make it work the first time around and everyone has a good time, it’s much easier to persuade people to come back, and we did all have a good time. We really enjoyed working with each other, and I know that Tom and Holliday both really loved playing Strike and Robin," she said. 

The second part of 'Cuckoo's Calling' airs Friday this week at 10 pm on Cinemax.
