American Gods Renewed for Season Three


Starz has ordered a third season of its original fantasy series American Gods, which just launched in its sophomore run.

Charles “Chic” Eglee will serve as showrunner in the new season of the Neil Gaiman adaptation. Eglee’s previous writing credits include Dexter and The Shield, and he co-created the series Dark Angel.

“I’m thrilled American Gods has been renewed for a third season, and even more thrilled that I’m getting to work on it with Chic Eglee,” said Gaiman. “Chic is the best partner-in-crime. 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.”
