AMERICAN GODS CANCELLED

After huge season-to-season declines in the ratings, Starz has cancelled the American Gods TV series. There won’t be a fourth season but, the show may still get some kind of a conclusion.

An adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel, The third season of American Gods averaged a 0.04 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 170,000 viewers. Compared to season two (which aired in 2019), that’s down by a whopping 65% in the demo and down by 49% in viewership.

There is talk of Gods getting some closure either via a TV movie or an “event series”. It’s unclear what the realistic chances of this wrap-up might be as the traditional ratings saw such large season-to-season declines this year. It’s not known what the delayed and streaming numbers were but, if they were impressive, Starz probably wouldn’t be pulling the plug on the show in the first place.
