American Gods Canceled

American Gods had a turbulent run, and now the show has been canceled after three seasons by Starz. The Neil Gaiman adaptation was launched under the guidance of writers and showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. However, reports indicate that Gaiman was unhappy with how Fuller and Green strayed from his source material (although some sources say Fuller and Green were pushed out because of budget reasons). Fuller and Green were replaced by Jesse Alexander, but Alexander ran into trouble almost immediately and was replaced by Charles “Chic” Eglee. During this musical chairs game of showrunners, several cast members left the show, and co-star Orlando Jones said he was fired because Eglee didn’t like his character. Now, after all of this, Starz has canceled the series after three seasons, with a chance for things to be wrapped up in a TV movie.
