Showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green exit ‘American Gods’

The hit Starz drama American Gods are losing their showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green as the second season is currently in the process of being written.

Fuller and Green created the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel three years ago with it finally premiering this year. They served as executive producers as well as its showrunners. The series was a hit in ratings and critics for its portrayal of unique characters and special effects and quickly earned a second season renewal.

There has been no official word on the reason behind their exits.

Don’t worry too much about Fuller and Green. They currently have projects going on for other TV series. Fuller is currently working on Apple’s ‘Amazing Stories.’ Green is working on the Netflix drama ‘Raising Dion’.

The series is currently in the process of finding a new showrunner.

American Gods is set to return spring 2018 on Starz.

American Gods Official Synopsis:

When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.
