Ricky Whittle’s Comments on American Gods “Controversy”: “We Just Loving Life”

It seems like American Gods may have lost their new showrunner Jesse Alexander. Reported by THR, it seems that Alexander maybe “fired but not fired” and there seem to be certain reports that want to say that what Alexander and those involved American Gods comment on is downplaying the “turmoil” surrounding season one. This also follows rumors that floated around season one, which saw the exit of Michael Green and Bryan Fuller, as well as the reduction of episodes from ten to eight. American Gods has been doing a lot of their own promotion, with stars Ricky Whittle, Demore Barnes,

‘American Gods’ Season Two to Premiere Early 2019

I’m a big fan of the Starz series American Gods. I wanted to start this off saying that. Based on novelist’s Neil Gaiman’s book of the same name, the show centers around Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) as he’s thrown into a crazy, off-balanced world of gods and monsters. Though the first episode aired in 2017, we’ll have to wait until 2019 for the second season to come around. Luckily, though; it seems like we won’t have to wait too long into the new year to get new episodes, based on Whittle’s tweet. Ahhh love my #AmericanGods fam🙌🏾🎥 a cast that

A Prayer for Mad Sweeney: What if Sean Harris Hadn’t Left American Gods?

Recasts happen all the time. A lot of our favorite on-screen characters landed that position because someone else had stepped away. Whatever cinematic powers above willed for the original pick to be gone and to bring in who rightfully deserved that role. While it might not always be the case, we can, for the most part; all agree that Pablo Schreiber’s casting in STARZ American Gods as Mad Sweeney was a match made in heaven. Sweeney is a leprechaun who aids Mr. Wednesday, much to his chagrin; and is loosely based on the lore of Buile Shuibhne – an Irish

Season Recap: American Gods

There’s rarely a television concept that we haven’t seen before. How many shows out there are based around crime scene detectives or sitcoms about the all American family? Stemmed from a book, American Gods certainly offers a unique storyline. Bringing together new and old gods from mythology into modern day society makes for one strange, interesting world that at times works and at times, doesn’t work. American Gods has only had one season so far and that season consisted of eight episodes. The series opens up with Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) being released from prison a few days before his
