The producer, who is married to her co-creator Nolan, said that so far they have not veered away from that idea.

Speaking at the premiere for the season two finale, Joy said: 'As a writer, you never want to tempt a smiting from the TV gods, so we'd never venture to guess how many seasons we will live for.'

'But I do think that there are tentpole moments that we're trying to work towards and hopefully we'll reach our ending in the time that we have.'

Nolan added that the couple feels that they don't want the programme to outstay its welcome, expressing that they have no desire to keep running it until it hits syndication.

He said: 'For us, we've approached the logic of making the show a little more like a film franchise, where each season settles its debts for the most part with the audience and sets up some interesting questions for the next season.'

Nolan, who has previously covered the topic of artificial intelligence in his series Person Of Interest, said that he doesn't understand why anyone would be writing about anything else right now.

Adding: 'After all, AI is almost here. So this is our last chance to imagine it before the fiction becomes a reality, and tells us to stop writing about it.'

Despite his insistence that he won't let the series over-run, he joked that he hopes that people get sick of comic book movies soon.

'We're in a glut of them now. Having contributed to the superhero movie genre a couple of times, I'm not terribly sure how well that genre will age. 

'There's some weird conscious stuff informing those characters dressing up in tights and beating the c**p out of people.'
