While we are all looking forward to seeing Bryan Fuller’s take on Neil Gaiman’s American Gods hitting the small screen, we’re grabbing for any available piece of information on it that we can get our grubby little mitts on.
At the 2016 TCA winter press tour audience, Starz CEO Chris Albrecht confirmed the show will go into production this year: “Scripts are coming in, they’re really terrific,” he said.
Last year Fuller said: “The arc of the first season, we take a slow burn on it and really take advantage of the real estate of 10 episodes to dig deep with the characters and really make it a character tale of someone finding their faith.
“Shadow’s journey is one of a non-believer becoming a believer — becoming something to believe in. We really want to make sure that we tell that story effectively.”
It is expected the series will also include events in the book Ananzi Boys which is based in the same universe and the sequel which Neil Gaiman is reportedly writing.
