American Gods Season 2 News and Updates
Carmi Zlotnik (Starz programming president) complimented the AG executive producers namely, Bryan Fuller, Michael Green and Neil Gaiman by saying they have the artful skills to beautifully enhance the occurrence of various events and happenings.
Let me come up with the wish list of the viewers. The fans must be having many questions in their mind. When will season 2 be aired? Who’s in and who’s out from the cast list? Read out the article to know more about American Gods second season.
American Gods Season 2 Release Date
According to the news hub, season 2 will possibly release in the mid-2019. The first installment also appeared in the mid-time in 2017. The production for the new installment started in April 2018.
In a conversation with Fuller, Green, and Gaiman, they revealed some fact about the story’s conclusion. Season 1 would end just as the Shadow Moon, Mr. Wednesday & Co. reach the House on the Rock. The tale seems to follow the story in the novel.
The unexpected departure of showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green has led to extended delays. It is alleged that they exited because show’s production company FremantleMedia refused to raise the already allocated budget of $10 million per episode. However, they will still have the executive producer credit.
After them, Jesse Alexander has taken over the mantle. He will work alongside the author Neil Gaiman.

The AG s1 originally had 10 episodes to air, but the showrunners decided to air only the first 8 episodes. The 2 episodes’ story was shifted to the next part of the series. It was done due to structural reasons. The second installment will have 10 episodes as told by Fuller.
