Starz announced that they had renewed American Gods for a third season. The show has been picked up by Starz for its third run, and there will be a new showrunner for the third season. Charles Eglee (The Shield, Dexter) is going to serve as the new top writer and executive producer for the new season.
The second season was delayed for a long time, and it made its premiere on March 10. Starz revealed that American Gods was the network’s second-highest rated original series for the year. The executive producer Neil Gaiman hinted that the fans might not have to wait for long for the third season of the show. He said that the main problem they had with the second season was that Starz was waiting to renew the show to find out how people liked the first season.
He also added that it takes time to start a writers room. Neil also said that he is hoping that it would take less time to script down the upcoming season 3 and it’s better to slow down and once season 3 is underway so the team can keep the writer’s room on and get the scripts written.
Barring any sudden plot twists in the second season, we should get the main cast coming back for its third installment. Here is the possible cast for the third season of American Gods:
Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon
Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday
Emily Browning as Laura Moon
Crispin Glover as Mr. World
Bruce Langley as the Technical Boy
Yetide Badaki as Bilquis
Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney
The show follows Shadow Moon is being kept in prison. Just days before his release, he is told that his wife has been killed in a car accident. So, he is released early to attend the funeral. Due to several events, his arrival is delayed, and during this time he meets Mr. Wednesday. Wednesday offers him a job which he refuses to take up straightway. But, after some time he accepts.
The second season of American Gods has completed, and now we are aiming to see more episodes as usual. The second season has left us on a cliffhanger, and it is evident that those questions must be answered. We know that the second season was nothing less than a war behind the camera, as Showrunners were having creative differences, which led to unexpected exits.
But finally, the second season somehow happened. After the second season, Neil Gaiman suggested that he wants the show to become more stable and smooth, and that is why he has roped in Charles Eglee, who is an experienced guy. Eglee has even shown plans for the fourth season of the show, which means he has good foreseeing abilities. So, keep waiting to see the next season, which would come next year in my opinion.
