American Gods was just renewed for a second season

American Gods was just renewed for a second season

Since American Gods has hewed pretty closely to the source material and there isn't much in the way of a follow-up book, it is unclear what exactly season 2 of the series might entail.

The pay cabler has handed out a season two renewal to the fantasy series, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The CW's Dynasty reboot from Gossip Girl team greenlit
Esther and Richard Shapiro, producers of the original show and a spinoff, " Dynasty II: The Colbys", are also on board. It's been a very competitive season at the CW, with all six pilots coming in strong.

The show, based on Neil Gaiman's novel and executive produced by Bryan Fuller, Michael Green and Gaiman, debuted to solid ratings for Starz. The series has been praised for its performances, stunning visuals, and frank sexual content.

American Gods also stars Yetide Badaki, Emily Browning, Bruce Langley, Pablo Schreiber, and Crispin Glover; the first season also features Gillian Anderson, Kristin Chenoweth, Peter Stormare, Cloris Leachman, Mousa Kraish, Omid Abtahi, Orlando Jones, Demore Barnes, Chris Obi, Jonathan Tucker, Corbin Bernsen, Betty Gilpin, and a nightmare buffalo with fire eyes. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon (The 100's Ricky Whittle), is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday (Deadwood's Ian McShane), a con-man but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation for a battle with the new deities. The old gods fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the new gods. "Neil Gaiman, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green have ignited a conversation through cinematic magic, presented through a diverse ensemble of actors that continue to keep us engaged and inspired", Cegielski said. More than 5 million multiplatform viewers watched the premiere, says Starz.

American Gods season 1 continues this Sunday at 9 pm ET/PT on Starz.
