American Gods sidelines new showrunner following season 2 delays

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Starz and Fremantle have reportedly pushed American Gods executive producer Jesse Alexander to the side as the series’ showrunner. Alexander was hired earlier this year following the resignation of original showrunners and co-creators Michael Green and Bryan Fuller.

Alexander was apparently asked a month ago to stop working on the trouble series, including participating in any other areas of production or post-production. He have also reportedly turned in multiple drafts for the season two finale which were ultimately rejected by Starz and Fremantle executives.

Furthermore, production on the series’ second season is currently on hiatus and is already six weeks behind schedule. The outlet reports that cast members haven’t received their scripts yet for the the show’s season two finale and have been working on re-shoots and pick-ups for earlier episodes instead. Because of all the delays, the drama will most likely be able to return in 2019 which is two years after its first season.

“American Gods has a deep and complex mythology and a unique visual style that makes this series one of the most ambitious productions on television, and one that we remain committed to delivering for our audience,” a spokesperson for Starz said in a statement. “We are confident that when the fans get their first look at season two in just a few weeks at New York Comic-Con, they will agree it was worth the wait.”

Fremantle added “We stand by our network partner’s statement and share in their confidence that season two will exceed expectations. Our cast and crew are extremely passionate about the show and have delivered something that remains loyal to the source material and true to the creative vision of Neil Gaiman. We think fans will feel the same when we share a first look at New York Comic-Con in a few weeks.”
