The revival of American Gods is taking a break.
But the hit drama, which stars D.J. MacLean as a disgraced former priest, has been quietly rolling out a slew of new material this month that will be available in theaters in November.
The show’s main cast members were in Los Angeles last week to preview a new episode, and the showrunner, Bryan Fuller, told EW the series will get a full reworking of the season finale.
Fuller says the new material includes an extended version of the pilot that will air during a different time slot.
“We’re working on a lot of stuff,” he said.
“There’s a lot we can’t talk about.
But I can tell you that we’re going to be doing a lot with the rest of the world this year, and we’re very excited about that.”
Fuller also said that the show will be coming back to the TV screens for the first time in about a decade.
The cast members also shared some other surprises for fans: A teaser trailer for the upcoming season was released, as was a preview for the next season.
Fuller also announced that the new season of American Horror Story: Coven will be the final season.
The series, which returns to television in 2018, will end its run in 2019.
Fuller said that a new season will be “an hour-long serial,” which he said would be about three-and-a-half hours long.
“I think it’s going to feel like a new chapter in this story,” he told EW.
“It will feel like an epic adventure.”
Fuller added that the final seasons of the original and upcoming seasons will be more focused on characters who have been out of the limelight for a while.
“You know, the people that we want to leave behind,” he explained.
“That’s something that we’ve been able to do in a way that we can never do in an episodic series.”
The American Gods was one of the most beloved series on television at the time it was first created, and it was widely praised for its distinctive mythology.
But, in recent years, it has suffered from a lack of focus.
Fuller previously told EW that he was disappointed that the series was canceled before its second season even aired.
“A lot of people are very disappointed with that,” he revealed at the TIME Tech Summit last year.
“And I’m not saying that they’re all going to forgive me.
But they’re disappointed that we didn’t make it a more interesting and exciting and compelling show.”
