AMERICAN GODS - Page 10

post #451 of 475

Episode Six of this show .... lol.  That was interesting.

post #452 of 475

I was keen on buying the Blu-ray for this because the show is so visuals-driven, but apparently it's only been released (and locked) for Region B?  Da fuq?

Uh, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green have both left the show.

That's... disconcerting.

What the fuck?

Damn, Bryan Fuller is all over the place lately. First bouncing off Star Trek, now this. Oh well. Maybe we'll get another new series from him in the next year?

 

Speculation: Maybe the network tried to pull a Walk Dead Season 2/Frank Darabont on them.

 

They probably should have just done the friggin book in 10 episodes instead of trying to drag it out for years...

Deadline says this:

 

Quote:
Michael Green and Bryan Fuller, the masterminds behind Starz’s American Gods, have exited the big-budget drama series. We hear the duo informed the cast of their departure today.

 

Fuller and Green created the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 award-winning novel and served as executive producers/showrunners on the show, which debuted this past spring and earned a quick Season 2 renewal. We hear more than half of the scripts for Season 2, which had been targeting a mid-2018 premiere, have been written. Gaiman may come on board as a co-showrunner but that is in flux as he also has series Good Omens for Amazon.

 

Word is that, with Green and Fuller working on multiple projects — including the high-profile Amazing Stories reboot at Apple for Fuller and a sequel to Orient Express for Green — Season 2 has not been moving fast enough for producer Fremantle Media North America, which led to the showrunner change.

 

What a waste.

Fuller and Green probably felt the first season didn't contain enough plot strand introductions and hyper-kinetic/stylized visualizations.  They needed the increased budget to remedy those issues.

If Exorcist gets cancelled, Slater (writer of Fantastic Four, 2015)  should give these guys a ring.

STARZ gave them a note that maybe just a hair fewer slo mo closeups of cigarettes glowing. This is their response!

Perfect scenario, Netflix begins producing it.

I haven't even finished S1 of Hannibal and I think he ought to go back to it if offered.

My reaction at present:

Sounds like this was a combination of budget disagreements and the fact that Fuller and Green are juggling other projects.

Why does Fuller keep taking on multiple shows in concert when it is constantly demonstrated that it doesn't work? In a very recent interview he insisted that American Gods was "more than front burner", yet he's also developing the Amazing Stories reboot.

*Shrugs*

 

I thought it was a bad show so whatever.

I think the nature of Amazing Stories meant that he didn't have to be as hands on as a showrunner as he was with American Gods, so it could've worked.

Damn it. I absolutely loved Season 1 and was looking forward to more. Were they still in pre-production for Season 2?

I think the fact that it didn't work suggests that it couldn't.
