“American Gods” Renewed for Season 3

The Straz series has been renewed. 

American Gods will officially return for a third season. The news was confirmed just one week into the second season of the series. 

American Gods is based on Neil Gaiman’s novel, who also serves as executive producer. Starring as leads are Ricky Whittle and Ian McShane. The new season also brings with it a new show runner — Charles “Chic” Eglee.

“Audiences continue to worship at the altar of American Gods and we are excited to be able to announce to all the true believers that there is more of this fantastical series to come,” said  Starz programming boss Carmi Zlotnik in a statement today “With Chic at the helm, the invaluable insight and contributions of Neil Gaiman and the undeniable talent of this dedicated cast and crew, we know that the show will continue to deliver on the vision and promise laid out in the novel.”

“Chic is the best partner-in-crime,” Gaiman added. “We’ve been working for weeks now on the shape of the season and I’m delighted that he gets to carry the American Gods torch on to glory. Thank you to Fremantle, Starz and Amazon for having faith in the series, to Bryan, Michael and Jesse for bringing it this far, to all the cast and crew, and most of all to the viewers. It’s their love of the characters that took us to this point, and will take us on to the next chapter.”
