American Gods has been canceled at Starz, just a week after the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s bestselling novel concluded its third season.

The decision to cancel the fantasy drama series comes amid low viewership for the season and just a week after the season 3 finale.

A Starz spokesperson said in a statement –

American Gods will not return for a fourth season. Everyone at Starz is grateful to the dedicated cast and crew, and our partners at Fremantle who brought author and executive producer Neil Gaiman’s ever-relevant story to life that speaks to the cultural climate of our country,”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network announced on Monday that the show would not be renewed for a fourth season, though sources have said that Starz is in talks with producers at Fremantle for “a potential event series or movie that would wrap up the story,” which derives from Gaiman’s fantasy novel of the same name.

Actor Ricky Whittle has said he’s “committed to completing” the American Gods story after the show was pulled by the American network.

Whittle had played the lead role in the fantasy drama series which was an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel of the same name.

American Gods joins a growing list of TV shows that have been canceled or announced to be ending in 2021, including BBC’s Peaky Blinders, which announced in advance of its sixth season that it would be ending, allowing the show to go out on its own terms and hopefully craft a satisfying conclusion, though showrunner Steven Knight has already told Deadline that the series will return “in another form.”
