No. of Season: 3
Just a week after American Gods wrapped its third season last March, Starz announced that the fantasy drama will not be returning for a fourth season on the network. Though fans were saddened by the premature end to the series, its cancellation wasn’t really unexpected. The third season of the show averaged a 0.04 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 170,000 viewers ― down by a whopping 65% in the demo and down by 49% in viewership from season 2, which aired in 2019.
Despite the show’s cancellation at Starz, executive producer Neil Gaiman and production company Fremantle assured fans that American Gods is not dead yet. “Fremantle are committed to finishing the story that began in episode 1, and right now we’re all just waiting to see which way forward is best, and who it’ll be with,” Gaiman wrote in a tweet.
Fremantle also released a statement echoing Gaiman’s social media post: “Fremantle is committed to completing the epic journey that is American Gods, one of TV’s most inclusive series with the most amazing fans across the globe. With Neil Gaiman and this fantastic cast and crew, we are exploring all options to continue to tell this magnificent story.”
