Starz has officially ordered a second season of American Gods. The raging war between the old gods and the new will spill over into next year though it’s unclear how many episodes season 2 will entail. Today’s report goes on to note that the sophomore run of American Gods will stretch for at least eight instalments.
Returning at the helm are co-showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, with American Gods author Neil Gaiman back to executive produce. On the other side of the lens, Ian McShane and Ricky Whittle will reprise as Mr. Wednesday and Ricky Moon, respectively, and the official statement from Starz is as follows:
“Bryan Fuller, Michael Green and Neil Gaiman have evolved the art form of television narratively, structurally and graphically with American Gods, and we’re thrilled to be working again with these artists as they continue to build the worlds and wars of the gods.”
