One thing you can always expect from San Diego Comic-Con is the awesome behind the scenes peeks featuring extras from the creators of your favorite TV shows and movies. Well, one show will be noticeably absent from SDCC this year, though it’s definitely for a good reason.
“Alas, the American Gods are not doing anything in Comic-Con this year because we’re going to take some time to make the show rather than talk about it.,” says American Gods showrunner Bryan Fuller when asked by Deadline what they’d be doing for the con this year. While it’s good to know that the poplar show based on the hit book by Neil Gaiman is working hard on bringing us what looks to be an exciting second season, one can’t deny that this is a departure for Fuller, who normally gets very involved in the fandoms of his shows.
“Yeah, we’re disappointed, too,” Fuller went on to say. “We love Comic-Con and we love going down there and sharing the show with the audience. We feel like we make the show, for that crowd, so to meet them and get to say thank you is always fun and meaningful because they’ll let you know when you’re not doing it right.”
At least it’s looking like Season 2 will be just as wonderful as its predecessor, filled with more unforgettable characters, mind blowing visuals, and new additions that book fans have been looking forward to.
"There's lots of new characters to come into this world that were part of this story in the book as well as some that weren't that we want to include," says Fuller. "We're excited about Mama-Ji and we're excited about Sam Black Crow. There were a lot of characters that we want to start weaving into the mythology of the television series, and we're really excited about seeing characters from the first season, again, that you may not expect to see again."
While there has been no official date for the Season 2 premiere, we can assume that the next season will return to wow us all sometime in April 2018.
