The second season of the American Gods proposed only Starz in the last week, and fans can breathe easily: Deadline reports that the network has renewed the series for a third season, and has taken on Hemlock Grove and Walking Dead producer Charles Eglee to act as a showrunner.
Based on the classic fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman, American Gods follows a former prisoner named Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) who suffers an epic battle between factions of old and new gods when he is hired by a mysterious man, Mr Wednesday (Ian McShane) to act as bodyguard and driver.

These problems seem to have taken a bit of a toll on the resulting season. The departures in Anderson and Chenoweth forced the show to remove some of the storylines that remained at the end of the season one and at least in the beginning, the series does not seem to have found its foot, although the reviewer Samantha Nelson says there are potential remains in the series. With the appointment of Eglee as showrunner, this coming third season will be able to avoid some of these problems and keep the show on track to debut at Starz in a better way.
