Although Starz has not arranged American Gods’ season 4, there are evidence indicating the fantasy series will be renewed. A dark storm is on the horizon, literally and figuratively, as of the season 3 finale. The only thing more unsure than Shadow Moon’s fate and whether or not war will eventually split between the Old Gods and New Gods is whether the series will visit a fourth and final season.
It’d be an understatement to say that the production of American Gods was a troubled one. The series premiered in 2017 to great acclaim from professional critics and lovers of writer Neil Gaiman alike. Unfortunately, behind-the-scenes conflicts between the showrunners along with the studio over funding and creative leadership led to continual delays and some producers and actors being fired. Much American Gods season, which was perhaps the most secure season up to now, saw controversy as Marilyn Manson was fired by the show in the aftermath of multiple abuse allegations.
The tales from behind the scenes of American Gods were as full of epic drama as the show itself. Regardless of this, the show has struggled forward, turning its story of ex-con Shadow Moon and the way he had been drawn to the world of the celestial, discovering that his father, Mr. Wednesday, was a part of the Norse god Odin. The show went far beyond the boundaries of the novel that inspired it, nevertheless, introducing new characters and fresh challenges for the mortals who discovered their contemporary lives disrupted and forever changed by the existence of the titular American Gods.

It would also be wasteful for Starz to cancel the series now when the end is so close, after it survived so many production problems. Multiple celebrities left American Gods – quitting in protest or being fired; it might be a shame if the show’s entire story was cut short, despite it weathering so much.
