Jesse Alexander Joins Neil Gaiman As American Gods Season Two Showrunner

In November, series co-creators Bryan Fuller and Michael Green exited the fantasy series, reportedly over creative differences.

Clearly, Starz still wants American Gods season 2 to have a small dose of the Bryan Fuller magic - after all, they have named former Hannibal executive producer Jesse Alexander. Now, The Hollywood Reporter confirms the series has finally hired a new showrunner: Jesse Alexander, who has worked with Fuller on both Hannibal and Star Trek: Discovery. As Gaiman has "an overall deal with Fremantle", the plan was always to find someone new to work alongside him.

At the time of the press event, the fate of the series seemed uncertain, despite the CEO promising, "We're hoping for many more American Gods to appear on Starz".

Bryan Fuller and Michael Green did excellent work turning Neil Gaiman's novel American Gods into a weird, twisted, entertaining series for Starz.

"Neil Gaiman will be taking more of a central role and moving forward into a more traditional showrunner function", Albrecht shared at the Television Critics Association press event. Perhaps Fuller and Green really started to go off the map, though, if Gaiman was no longer pleased. "He loves and understands the book, he loves and understands the TV series and he's dedicated to making future seasons of American Gods as good and as handsome and as unique as they can be", Gaiman tells THR.

Hopefully, with all of the confusion out of the way, the show can now continue on course - though specifically how it will do that is still a question.

No return date has been set yet for the American Gods season 2 premiere. Given the delay in production that this shuffling has caused, the show may end up with a smaller sophomore season than anticipated.

"Not surprisingly if you've seen the show it's not an low-priced show", Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said during January's TCA. It's an expensive show to make and also one that is time-consuming. "Shadow's journey is going to take him, and Mr. Wednesday, and the New Gods and the Old, to some very odd places".

Does this news excite you, or do you think that nobody can fill the shoes of Fuller and Green?
