It doesn’t feel really not good for season 2 of American Gods
Whether we believe it or not, life sends us when even a few times signs that you need to know to take into account. A little as if a force superior was saying to us “keep an eye out coco, you’re about to make a huge bullshit !”
Surinterprétation or reality, hard to know, but the fact is that there is an area where these signs are particularly meaningful and rich in a background of truth : entertainment. In fact, with the experience and habit, we get to see these signs to know when a project starts to seriously repress the underside of the arms, even when it feels like the actual christmas tree. All that to say that we are going to talk about the series American Gods.
The season 1 of the series adapted from the novel of Neil Gaiman has been released last year on the network Starz, and it was something ! Indeed, it was downright awesome. While we could expect that the season 2 is started on-the-field, the problems started. And they were not small, since this are definitely the two show runners of the series, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, which are made to land. They were then replaced by Jesse Alexander, also an executive producer on the series. And since, it is not too much news so we told ourselves that it must have been moving in the right direction.
Except that no, in fact, as the Hollywood Reporter has just told us thatAlexander is no longer part of the team for a month. If we are told that he has not been fired officially, it would have been “invited” to leave after that his scripts for the double final episode of season 2 have not convinced the decision-makers. It should also be said that it would be delivered seven versions of the scenarios which have all been rejected. So, necessarily…
Courage is said to you
The most serious in all this, is that the season 2 has already started filming under the supervision of Jesse Alexander , and that it was apparently a big mess with the actors who were changing their dialogues because the scenarios were not convincing. Where it becomes even more complicated, is that the shooting schedule has already been exceeded by six weeks and that the actors have still not received the scripts in the final, being concentrated more on the reshoots of the previous episodes. Currently, the production would be paused.
To make matters worse, it seems that the production has promoted to a writer to the position of showrunner after the departure of Alexander, but that this mysterious person would have deserted his post just after his appointment. So yes, it does not smell good at all, we can quietly sit on a diffusion in 2019 even if Starz continues to assert that it will present a first preview of the season 2 at New York Comic Con in two weeks. Suspense, suspense…
The fate of the series is in the balance
