In the main series of Trese, there are a total of seven books. The first three books in the series cover 13 cases that Alexandra Trese works on. It’s highly likely that the first season of Trese will be covering the events and of the first six cases in the story, which covers the entirety of volume 1, and two cases of volume 2.

Can we expect to see more seasons of Trese?

It’s more than likely that we’ll see more of Trese on Netflix in the near future. Renewal is largely dependant on the popularity of the anime, but given the popularity of the manga, this shouldn’t be an issue.
