Neil Gaiman’s American Gods Is Coming To HBO

HBO recently announced that American Gods, their new series based on the novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman will have a total of 60-70 one hour episodes divided into six seasons.

Gaiman’s own Twitter feed shared that more material will be written by him, “And for those asking, No, 6 years of AMERICAN GODS on TV doesn’t mean just the 1st book. It means I need to write the 2nd now, for a start.”

The series is planned to be big-budgeted and effects-heavy. “There are some crazy things in there.” said Gary Goetzman, a partner in the production company, Playtone Productions, “We’ll probably be doing more effects in American Gods than has ever been done on a television series,” said Goetzman.

    1. Nick, I heard Neil Gaiman speak about this subject this week and he stated that Anansi Boys is not a sequel at all but just shares a character’s name. There is a Shadow story in Gaiman’s collection, Fragile Things.

  1. Sweet. would love to see more Gaiman-written adventures of the war between the classic and modern gods. Looking forward to the HBO series!
