‘American Gods’ Showrunners Officially Exit Series

If you haven’t heard of it, American Gods is based on Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel of the same name. The show revolves around a character named Shadow Moon who after meeting someone named Mr. Wednesday, finds himself in the midst of a battle between the Old Gods and the New Gods who grow only grow stronger by the day.

The series was created by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green who also served as it’s showrunners and had a major hand in the development of the first season’s episodes. Unfortunately, due to disagreements about budget as well as the show’s creative direction going forward, both men have decided to leave the popular Starz show.

Half of the episodes of season two have reportedly already been written, and the per-episode budget is rumored to be $10 million.

Fuller actually left his showrunner position on Star Trek: Discovery to help helm American Gods and his next project is a reboot of Amazing Stories for Apple’s new streaming video service, while Green’s credits for this year alone include Logan and Blade Runner 2049.

There were rumors that Gaiman himself could possibly be taking over as showrunner, but the author took to his twitter to denounce them:
