As filming nears completion on the second season, American Gods has lost another showrunner, with Jesse Alexander departing the series amid reports of creative differences and on-set screaming matches.
At long last, American Gods is finally headed to the House on the Rock. The long-delayed Starz drama begins Season 2 production with a new behind-the-scenes teaser and photo; also confirming a 2019 return.
David Tennant broke bad with Marvel’s Jessica Jones, but the former Doctor Who star nearly played an even more delicious villain. According to Tennant, he and Bryan Fuller discussed the titular role of Hannibal before Mads Mikkelsen signed on.
Another of the old Gods is bidding America farewell. Following some initial uncertainties, American Gods star Kristin Chenoweth has taken a new NBC role that spells out “no future plans” for Season 2 of the Starz drama.
Well, you can thank the Gods for at least some good news. Starz has officially recruited Star Trek: Discovery alum Jesse Alexander to showrun American Gods Season 2 after Bryan Fuller’s exit, but the eventual return may be more of a reboot than we’d like.
Prospects are increasingly bleak for American Gods Season 2, especially after Gillian Anderson left the series behind showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. Now, Starz admits they’re having trouble filling the slots, but may come to an arrangement with Fuller, Green and creator Neil Gaiman for future seasons.
Disappointed though we were to see Bryan Fuller leaving both Star Trek: Discovery and American Gods, the writer-showrunner has a habit of amazing rebounds. Now, Paramount TV reveals that Fuller is consulting on Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles TV adaptation, and may even stay on to showrun.
