American Gods, on the other hand, is the type of show that anyone could watch. It has a total of 3 seasons. The most recent season, season 3, premiered on January 19, 2021.

Shadow finds a secret America as their journey begins, where magic is actual and dread rises over the growing power of New Gods such as Media and Technology. Mr. Wednesday strives to unify the Ancient Gods to protect their survival and reclaim the authority they’ve squandered in a great strategy to resist the danger, leaving Shadow battling to embrace a new reality and his position in it.
Season 4 Of American God’s – Cancelled Or Renewed?
The news that mythological series American God’s had been terminated after three seasons emerged at the end of March. It’s simply the worst news a fan could receive: their favorite show has been canceled. The third season of American Gods ended on a massive cliffhanger that has yet to be resolved.
And it’s very surprising for the viewers. A representative told Deadline after the third season of American Gods aired on Starz. “American Gods will not return for a fourth season. Everyone at Starz is grateful to the dedicated cast and crew, and our partners at Fremantle who brought author and executive producer Neil Gaiman’s ever-relevant story to life that speaks to the cultural climate of our country.” As a result, the show was officially over. But why is this the case?
What Caused the Cancellation of the American God’s Series?
When it initially aired, the show was doing quite well, especially to both the original showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. They were later terminated while planning the second installment.
Purportedly, due to a disagreement with production company Fremantle about the show’s expense. Later, another showrunner, Jesse Alexander, was brought in to replace the pair. But it wasn’t as great and wasn’t performing as well. Charles H Eglee was selected as the fantasy drama series’s fourth showrunner, and he demonstrated to be a steady hand, directing the production toward a better critical reaction.
Later, it was announced regarding the cancellation of the show through a spokesman. The series wasn’t doing great. Though we don’t have any official statements on this, this is most likely the case regarding the reason behind the cancellation.
“The Show Isn’t Dead Yet”
Well, since it was announced that the show was nearing an end, viewers weren’t willing to accept it. And it’s pretty obvious because the cliffhanger at the end of Season 3 of American Gods is surely upsetting.
There’s something else viewers should know. On Twitter, writer Neil Gaiman stated, “It’s definitely not dead.” “I’m grateful to the team at Starz for the American Gods journey so far. Fremantle (who make AG) is committed to finishing the story that began in episode one, and right now we’re all just waiting to see which way forward is best, and who it’ll be with.”

So basically, Starz is considering making Neil Gaiman’s adaption into an event series or a movie. So, as soon as any additional statements are made, we will keep everyone informed.
