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.
