After three seasons, American Gods was in a time of change. The show was always changing, with cast members being fired or demoted, showrunners being replaced, and other delays happening. Fans found out in March of this year that it wouldn't be coming back.
After the cancellation, Starz made a statement. It was a little bit of a letdown. There won't be the fourth season of American Gods. We are thankful to our cast, crew, and Fremantle partners, who worked hard to bring Neil Gaiman's timeless story to life in a way that fits with today's culture.
Despite all of this, I don't think the cancellation surprised me. I can see why they couldn't say more, but I wanted them to show more emotion. Even though it caused a lot of trouble, the show that brought Neil Gaiman's well-known book to life on TV was still great.
Just barely, the show made it to the next season. Since March of this year, when Gaiman said he was excited about the series, there hasn't been much information about whether or not it will be moved. However, there have been rumors.
American Gods Season 4: Renewed or Canceled?
According to winteriscomin, in 2019, Gaiman was planning the fourth season with the showrunner, Charles “Chic” Eglee. But those plans were scrapped because of how few people watched the show. People still think that a TV movie or a similar series finale could be coming.
Fans went crazy when NBC canceled its time-traveling show Timeless. In a 2012 movie, the story was finally finished. Similar things have happened in the past, but we haven't heard about them in recent years.
After NBC's Manifest was canceled, this is exactly what happened. Later, Netflix bought the show for the last season with 20 episodes. When will the fourth season of American Gods come out?
Even though something similar may happen with American Gods, I'm worried that we haven't heard anything in months. I think they are just finishing up the last details and will say something in the next few days.
American Gods Season 4 Plot
Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) was seen tied to Yggdrasil (the World Tree), where he was holding a death vigil for Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), who was killed by Laura Moon (Emily Browning) with Shadow Moon's own sword, Gungnir.
In the last episode of the series, Mr. Wednesday's body vanished from the base Yggdrasil. It has never been seen since. Is Mr. Wednesday trying to pull a fast one on us? How does all of this affect Shadow? And what will happen to him? It's possible we'll never find out.
If the show comes back, we can expect to hear more about what happened to Yetide Baaki's character Bilquis. In season 3, Bilquis set out on her own exciting journey.
Let's not forget that after Mr. Wednesday died, Mr./Ms. The world was seen getting ready to war with the Old Gods and the New Gods.
If American Gods have a fourth season, I'd love to see how Shadow's story continues to develop. If he accepts that he is god because he is Odin's son, the story will have to be changed.
The Expected Cast of American Gods Season 4
Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon and Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday were both important parts of their TV shows.
Also Emily Browning as Laura Moon, Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney, Yetide Badaki as Bilquis, Bruce Langley as Technical Boy, Omid Abtahi as Salim, Crispin Glover as Mr. World, Demore Barnes as Mr. Ibis, Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy, and Mousa Kraish as The Jinn.
Unfortunately, there is no trailer for American gods season 4 at this time, but you can watch its season 3 trailer and enjoy the previous season.
