American Gods returning for 3rd season

Share article:

"American Gods" has been recommissioned for a third season.

The blockbuster Amazon Prime Original series is based on the award-winning novel by Neil Gaiman, who is delighted "Dexter" screenwriter and producer Charles "Chic" Eglee will be on board as the new showrunner.

Neil - who has also penned books such as "Stardust" and "Coraline" - said: "I'm thrilled "American Gods" has been renewed for a third season, and even more thrilled that I'm getting to work on it with Chic Eglee.

"Chic is the best partner-in-crime. We've been working for weeks now on the shape of the season and I'm delighted that he gets to carry the "American Gods" torch on to glory."

The "Sandman" writer also thanked the cast, crew and fans for being devoted to the series and says the universal "love" of the fantasy drama - which stars Ricky Whittle, Emily Browning and Crispin Glover - has ensured its comeback.

"It's their love of the characters that took us to this point, and will take us on to the next chapter."
