American Gods premiered on Starz earlier this Spring and earned a quick renewal after it became a ratings hit. The reason why Fuller and Green have exited the series hasn’t been confirmed yet, though Deadline reports it is because of the series’ budget. According to them, the first season’s budget had grown to Game of Thrones levels and Dante di Lorento, the new chief of American Gods‘ producer FremantleMedia North America, wanted to cut the second season’s budget, leading to Fuller and Green’s departure.
Despite their exit, Fuller and Green have apparently written more than half the episodes for the 10-episode second season, which Starz is aiming for a mid-2018 premiere.

The underappreciated ‘nature gone wild’ porn horror movie subgenre has a somewhat patchy history, with a viewer’s search more likely to end up in some SyFy channel Megapterranoshark Versus Crocosaur cul-de-sac than something of the calibre of a Jaws or Arachnophobia. Sharks, spiders and gators are all well served, though (alongside the glaring lack of a movie adaptation of Guy N. Smith’s glorious Night Of The Crabs books) rodents have had something of a raw deal.
