American Gods was in transition after three seasons. The show was constantly in flux, with cast members being fired or demoted, showrunners changing and other delays. In March this year, fans were informed that it would not be renewed.
Starz released a statement following the cancellation. It was somewhat disappointing. “American Gods won’t return for a fourth series.” We are grateful to our cast and crew as well Fremantle partners, who tirelessly worked to bring Neil Gaiman’s timeless tale to life in a way that is timely in the current cultural climate.
Although I can understand why they couldn’t say more, I wanted more emotion. It was still a great show that brought Neil Gaiman’s beloved novel to life on the small-screen screen, despite the controversy. Despite all this, I don’t think I was shocked by the cancellation. The show barely made it to the next season.
Although there isn’t much information on whether the series will be relocated since Gaiman expressed his excitement for it back in March of this year, there have been some rumors.
American Gods Season 4: Renewed or Canceled
In 2019, Gaiman was working with showrunner Charles “Chic”, Eglee to plan for the fourth season. However, those plans were halted after the show’s low ratings. There is still speculation that a TV movie or similar series finale may be in the making.
Although we haven’t heard about it in recent years, similar events have happened in the past. Fans rioted after NBC cancelled Timeless, its time-traveling series. The story was finally wrapped up in a 2012 movie. This is exactly what happened to NBC’s Manifest after it was cancelled. Netflix later acquired the series for a final season with 20 episodes. American Gods Season 4 Release date Renewed or Canceled
Although it is possible that something similar will happen for American Gods’, I am concerned about how many months have gone by without any news. I believe that they are only finalizing details and will announce something in the next few days.
American Gods season 4 plot
Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), was seen bound to Yggdrasil (the World Tree), where he was holding a death vigil in honor of Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), who was killed by Laura Moon, Emily Browning, with Shadow Moon’s personal sword, Gungnir.
The series finale ended with Mr. Wednesday’s body disappearing from the base Yggdrasil. It has never been seen since. Is Mr. Wednesday trying to trick the audience? What does this all mean for Shadow? And how will it impact him? It is possible that we will never know.
If the series returns, we can expect to continue that storyline and to hear about Bilquis’ (Yetide Baaki) fate. Bilquis embarked on an adventurous journey of her own in season 3. Let ‘s not forget about Mr./Ms. World was seen getting ready to wage war against the Old Gods, and the New Gods following the death of Mr. Wednesday.
If American Gods has a fourth season, I’d be very interested to see Shadow’s story develop further. The story will be rewritten if he accepts his divinity his as Odin’s son.

Are there any more American Gods?
Fans have been considering whether Starz could offer another home for American Gods since the announcement that the show would not be returning for its fourth season.
Neil Gaiman, an essayist, tweeted that “It’s still alive” Starz has been a great partner in my American Gods venture. Fremantle, which makes AG, is focused on finishing the story that began in scene one. At this point we are all waiting to see which direction is best and with whom it will take us.
With Neil Gaiman and this fantastic cast and group, we explore every option to continue telling this eminent story.” We explore all options to tell this great story.”
It’s almost certain that American Gods would return as a full-length series. However, there is no information on which organizations or embellishments are interested in continuing the adventure.
American Gods Season 4 Storyline
The finale of American Gods season 3 saw Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), tied to Yggdrasil the World Tree. There he held a passing vigil in support of Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), but he was shot by Laura Moon (Emily Browning), with his special lance, Gungnir.
However, the last snapshots of the series finale show that Mr. Wednesday has disappeared from Yggdrasil. Is it fraud? What does Shadow mean by this? We might never know.
We can only hope that the series will return. If so, we can continue the storyline to find out what happens to Bilquis (Yetide Baaki), who went on a wild adventure in the third season. We must also not forget Mr/Mrs. World was preparing for a conflict between Old Gods and New Gods following Mr. Wednesday.
If American Gods season 4 continues, I would love to see Shadow’s adventure. If he accepts Odin’s eternity his as his child his, then the story will be rewritten in a way that we have never seen before.
