If you’re hoping that perhaps Gaiman himself may join the series in an expanded role, it’s not likely to happen. The author himself already shut down that possibility on Twitter, noting that he’s already busy serving as showrunner on Amazon’s Good Omens, another adaptation of his works.

Following the news that the Fuller and Green were departing, American Gods star Ricky Whittle (Shadow Moon) took to social media to say goodbye to the pair. “You will always be apart of the American Gods family and I will always be grateful to you for the opportunity of working with you,” he writes in a lengthy Twitter post.

This is the second time in just over a year that Fuller has departed a major series. In October 16, he stepped down as showrunner of Star Trek: Discovery before the series went into production. He will next work on a reboot of Amazing Stories, which is being produced by Apple. Green, for his part, is venturing back to the big screen as he writes a sequel to Murder on the Orient Express.
