The gods aren't going anywhere.
Just two episodes in, "American Gods" has yet to answer several questions; however, whether or not the show will continue isn't one of them. Starz made its announcement Thursday, less than two weeks after the series' April 30 premiere. Apparently, the network isn't into playing it cool when it knows what it wants.
The "American Gods" Twitter account shared the news, saying that fans' "prayers have been answered."

The series is based on the 2001 novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman, who serves as one of the show's executive producers alongside developers Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. Like the book, the series centers on Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), a man who gets out of jail and then caught up in a battle between two opposing groups of gods. The story seems to have captivated viewers so far -- the premiere's live + same day audience number placed it among Starz's best ever for an original series, according to Deadline.
"American Gods" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
