Season 1 of Morbus Dei: The TV Series is based on Morbus Dei: The Arrival, the first volume of the novel trilogy.
The second and third volumes of the Morbus Dei novels offer enough material for future seasons, although this material can be extended even further if required. With an original and gripping storyline that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats right to the very last minute, as well as a mysterious setting that perfectly supports the plot, Morbus Dei has strong potential to run for many seasons. The setting is one that offers drama of a kind never before seen by an international audience; it is European Gothic truly at its best. From remote, snowy villages in the Alps, to secret abbeys, all the way to Inquisition-run Vienna, and further on to the battlefields around Turin: this unique series will keep viewers holding their breath until the very moment the secret of Morbus Dei is revealed.
