American Gods cancelled/Season 2 unrenewed?
Michael Green and Bryan Fuller, the masterminds behind Starz’s American Gods, have exited the big-budget drama series. We hear the duo informed the cast of their departure today.
We hear more than half of the scripts for Season 2, which had been targeting a mid-2018 premiere, have been written. Gaiman may come on board as a co-showrunner but that is in flux as he also has series Good Omens for Amazon.
Word is that, with Green and Fuller working on multiple projects — including the high-profile Amazing Stories reboot at Apple for Fuller and a sequel to Orient Express for Green — Season 2 has not been moving fast enough for producer Fremantle Media North America, which led to the showrunner change.
Will Starz scrap American Gods Season 2, or will the series continue with new showrunners at the helm?
Even if Season 2 continues for a mid-2018 release, does this major creative change spell trouble for the coveted third season? Stay tuned…
