In one of the least surprising bits of news this year, Starz has given its “American Gods” series a second season renewal.
Bryan Fuller and Michael Green’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 award-winning novel premiered on the premium cable network on April 30th to solid reviews and ratings.
Ian McShane and Ricky Whittle lead the mythological fantasy drama with the first episode having garnered more than five million viewers total so far over multiple airings and online.
While a specific number of episodes for the second season has not been determined, it’s expected to be at least the eight that the first season had.
The first season is said to have only adapted around one-third of the novel which means there’s plenty of material left to mine. The show’s second season is expected to launch in mid-2018.
