Season 2 Of 'American Gods' Facing Trouble

Season 2 Of 'American Gods' Facing Trouble

When Fuller and Green left the series, rumors abounded that budget was an issue in conflict between the showrunners and the studio. While the show debuted in April of 2017, there is no 2018 return date locked in just yet.

"I think there's been some confusion about the cast exits". It's an incredibly hard adaptation of a fantastic novel.

"As you can see, we are having some trouble getting the second season underway", Albrecht said during his executive session at the Television Critics' Association's winter press tour.

According to Starz CEO Chris Albrecht, Gaiman will be "taking more of a central role and moving forward into a more traditional showrunner function" for Season 2, and the search is now underway for a showrunning partner with more experience in TV production to help him handle the adaptation process.

The challenge for Starz has been finding someone else who can fill Fuller's shoes - the producer is known for bringing a singular, unique vision to everything he does, and a large part of the success of "American Gods" boils down to Fuller's involvement. We love the show; as I mentioned before, it did very well for us.

Appointing Neil Gaiman, though, suggests that there's going to be an effort to make season two of "American Gods" as rich and deep as the first season.

Starz's big-budget drama American Gods has been making headlines in the past couple of months with the surprise exit of the masterminds behind the genre series, executive producers/showrunners Michael Green and Bryan Fuller, who created the adaptation of Neil Gaiman's 2001 award-winning novel.

"They were not fired, nor did they quit", Albrecht said. A lot of that is between Fremantle, Neil and Brian and Michael. Everyone is trying to work this out and have this be a win-win for the people involved and the show itself. Our partners at [production company] Freemantle are working with Bryan and Michael on their schedules, for a way for them to be involved. It's a little bit up in the air what their exact role will be. "It's a big show, it's a monster show and it's faced numerous challenges that terrific complex premium shows face trying to get seasons, especially when art comes before commerce". Albrecht addressed this issue by pointing out that this is not an cheap show, which means there will be some budgetary constraints. [It's] obviously not ideal to have two years in-between seasons. Fremantle needs to know there is a formula to get the show on. It might be that the things that Bryan and Michael were doing in their schedule would not allow them to focus in the way that Fremantle has wanted them to, although I don't know that specifically.
