Trivia: The show's creators had originally hoped to create five seasons, as indicated by the show's "Bible" or major planning document. According to Zabel and Friedman's original plan,
first season (given the overall title "Official Denial") would cover the period from 1961 to 1969
second season ("Progenitor") 1970 to 1976
third season ("Cloak of Fear") 1977 to 1986
fourth season ("New World Order") would cover 1987 to 1999
fifth and final season ("Stroke of Midnight") would break from the decade-spanning format to encompass the apocalyptic final conflict against the invaders, taking place from 2000 to 2001.
