Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is set to take over HBO
According to film and TV website Screen Rant, HBO is planning out six seasons of a TV version of Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods, the first of which is set to air as early as next year.
The series would follow the adventures of Shadow, a recently released convict who must navigate a modern landscape populated with Old World gods like Odin, Anansi, Kali, and Anubis, who compete with the brash, modern New World gods for the spiritual domination of the States. Cutthroat and vicious, these are gods who know the stakes and play for keeps.
Now, if they would only make a big-screen version of Good Omens, I could die happy.
