American Gods renewed for season three, new showrunner announced
American Gods, the TV series adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel, has gone through plenty of behind the scenes turmoil and delays since the first season launched in 2017. But with season two now debuting, it seems as if there is still plenty of life in the show yet, as it gains a third season renewal from Starz and a new showrunner too.
Charles 'Chic' Eglee has been confirmed to helm the third season of the show. Here's the statement from Carmi Zlotnik, president of programming for Starz.
“Audiences continue to worship at the altar of ‘American Gods’ and we are excited to be able to announce to all the true believers that there is more of this fantastical series to come. With Chic at the helm, the invaluable insight and contributions of Neil Gaiman and the undeniable talent of this dedicated cast and crew, we know that the show will continue to deliver on the vision and promise laid out in the novel.”
Neil Gaiman, who has been heavily involved with the development of the show and acts as executive producer, also made a statement:
“I’m thrilled ‘American Gods’ has been renewed for a third season, and even more thrilled that I’m getting to work on it with Chic Eglee. Chic is the best partner-in-crime. We’ve been working for weeks now on the shape of the season and I’m delighted that he gets to carry the American Gods torch on to glory. Thank you to Fremantle, Starz and Amazon for having faith in the series, to Bryan, Michael and Jesse for bringing it this far, to all the cast and crew, and most of all to the viewers. It’s their love of the characters that took us to this point, and will take us on to the next chapter.”
The second season airs weekly and is available to watch on Amazon Prime here in the UK.
