When news broke that Bryan Fuller and Michael Green wouldn’t be showrunning American Gods Season 2, millions of fans suddenly cried out in terror, horrified by the possibility of the critically-acclaimed show being derailed just as it was building momentum.
But if the beloved executive producers have to be replaced, it seems like production studio Fremantle Media has found the only acceptable alternative: Author Neil Gaiman, who created the world of American Gods in 2001.
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 currently underway for a showrunning partner with more experience in TV production to help him handle the adaptation process. “It seems like we’re finally on a path to get this on track to a definite Season 2,” he said.
