Far be it for Starz to make Neil Gaiman and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods a one-and-done. Two episodes into the first season, Starz confirms a Season 2 renewal for the godly new drama to premiere next year.
Far and away, the best puzzle pieces from Starz’s American Gods are the ones that don’t yet fit, as Bryan Fuller introduces us to Neil Gaiman’s roster of Gods in their original arrivals to America. You can even get a first look at one of the season’s most fiery performances, as Orlando Jones makes his Mr. Nancy debut in a new clip.
At long last, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods finally made it to the screen with Sunday’s Starz premiere, faithfully representing Shadow Moon, Mr. Wednesday and many others. Sure, there were changes here and there, but as Gaiman himself reveals, there was at least one tweak of the source material he’d step in front of a bus before agreeing to.
Starz’s ‘American Gods’ brings Neil Gaiman’s odyssey to life with a dreamily perfect cast, but occasionally gets distracted in service of its extensive lore. Our early review, before the Bryan Fuller drama enters “The Bone Orchard” on April 30.
Starz’s American Gods may adjust Neil Gaiman’s novel for the screen, but the question remains how Bryan Fuller might conjure material beyond the literary tale. Gaiman had announced a sequel novel to his original bestseller, but in lieu of an official plan, is at least advising the Starz series on potential roadblocks.
It’s taken long enough for TV to adapt Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, and there were bound to be hiccups along the way. So much so, in fact, that Starz and Bryan Fuller apparently agreed to cut two whole episodes from the first season’s order once they realized “we didn’t like what we saw.”
It’s Wednesday, and there is no more appropriate day to meet the deity that doesn’t count Himself among American Gods. Get a shadowy glimpse of Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednesday in another new clip from Bryan Fuller’s Starz drama, depicting a very fateful meeting.
The Droughtlander will remain until at least fall, but here’s a few drops in the meantime. Starz brings out the first footage of Outlander Season 3, as Claire returns to life in the ‘60s, while Jamie tries desperately to reconnect with his lost love through time.
We may not have met the American Gods, but we sure know some of their rules. Specifically, don’t upset any airport employees, and other such helpful tips revealed by Low Key Lyesmith in our first official clip from Starz’s Bryan Fuller-adapted series.
The Droughtlander has nearly abated! We’re just days away from Starz debuting the first official teaser-trailer for Outlander Season 3, and to help tide you over, new photos have arrived of Claire in the 1960s, and beyond.
