Word is out this evening that American Gods has been cancelled by Starz after three seasons. The sad news comes a week after the fantasy drama aired its third-season finale.
Adapted from the 2001 Neil Gaiman novel, the series follows ex-con and widower Shadow Moon, who has his life turned upside down not long after being released from prison. He meets a charismatic con man named Mr. Wednesday, who is actually an incarnation of the God Odin and looking to confront the new Gods, who have been growing stronger. Together, Mr. Wednesday and Shadow Moon begin a journey across America in an attempt to build an army of Old Gods that will battle for power against the New Gods.
While today’s cancellation cuts the ongoing story short, there is talk that a TV movie or event series could be a possibility down the road to give American Gods a proper ending. Star Ricky Whittle took to Twitter shortly after the news broke to thank his fellow cast members, the crew, and the fans. He also noted that he, Gaiman, and Fremantle are committed to completing the story.

As director James Gunn promised on his Twitter feed, a red-band trailer for The Suicide Squad arrived online today. Also joining the advertising campaign are some individual character posters – and one outstanding ensemble one. A sequel to David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad (though minus a number in the title, probably to sell it as a soft reboot), The Suicide Squad finds Task Force X sent to the island nation Corto Maltese to do some clandestine wet work for the government. Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, and Viola Davis return as Harley Quinn, Rick Flag, Boomerang, and Amanda Waller; they’re joined by Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Michael Rooker as Savant, Jon Cena as Peacemaker, and Pete Davidson as Blackguard, among others.
In a recent interview, Avengers-franchise star Scarlett Johansson shared her opinion that by nature of their job, actors are not “obligated” to act as politicians, but rather only to act.
Speaking with UK fashion magazine The Gentlewoman, Johansson told staff writer Sophie Elmhirst that she did not personally think that “actors have obligations to have a public role in society.”
