'American Gods': Michael Green & Bryan Fuller Exit As Showrunners Of Starz Series

Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, the team behind the Starz adaptation of the 2001 Neil Gaiman novel, have opted to leave the series. While it's believed that each episode of Season 2 war nearing a price tag of $10 million, the two executive producers were pushing for more. FremantleMedia, who produces the series, tried to impose some budget cuts from the second season, which did not sit well for the showrunners. "Sources close to the production said that the per-episode budget for American Gods season two already almost ten million". They now have projects going on for other TV series. The series was a hit in ratings and critics for its portrayal of unique characters and special effects and quickly earned a second season renewal. Fuller and Green were executive producers with Gaiman himself.

They'll both be busy regardless, as Fuller is working on a remake of Amazing Stories for Apple and Green has several film and TV projects in development.

Fuller was previously the creator/executive/producer/showrunner of CBS All Access' Star Trek Discovery, but he left before production began.

"In her review of the first season for Variety, critic Sonia Saraiya wrote, "['American Gods'] is a sprawling, lovely show that is fascinating, brilliantly executed, and rather hard to follow. It's not just Shadow that is unmoored, it's the audience, too: "Like the feverish terror of a bad dream, the show presents a disorienting, portentous landscape - with absolutely no instructions whatsoever".
