Gaiman said that the showrunners have “really made a show to be proud of.” When asked if there might be another American Gods novel on the cards, he was optimistic.

 

“We’ve probably got around five seasons from the first novel and probably by the time that’s ready, there will be another ‘American Gods’ novel done.”

 

We can’t wait to see what the show has in store for us next season, with on-location shooting beginning shortly. 

 

‘American Gods’ is out now on Steelbook, Blu-ray, and DVD.
