Some of the most fascinating things about Starz’s adaptation of American Gods revolve around the major changes made in order to make the show feel contemporary.

The first trailer for American Gods’ second season is here and it’s as gorgeous as it is foreboding of the terrible things to come.
American Gods is only about to enter its second season, but it’s had almost as much turnover as the Trump administration. The newest shake-up involves showrunner Jesse Alexander, who himself replaced Michael Green and Bryan Fuller after they were pushed out. Now, it looks like he’s being pushed out too. As the…
We’ve seen little bits here and there of Amazon and the BBC’s adaptation of the beloved Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and the dearly missed Terry Pratchett. But while Comic-Con didn’t give us a trailer, it did let us peek behind the curtain to see the novel’s fantastical mishmash of Angels and Demons come to life, plus a…
With the first season’s showrunners leaving and the exit of a major star, it’s been a tense time waiting for the resurrection of American Gods. But Neil Gaiman’s just given a new look at the Starz show, which will be coming back in 2019.
It truly sucks that Gillian Anderson won’t be reprising her role as shape-shifting deity Media on American Gods. But it sounds like the producers of season two are taking the opportunity to add a similar character that will present the same kind of ideas, but in a totally different and fresh way.
Almost two decades after the BBC adapted Mervyn Peake’s classic fantasy series Gormenghast, Neil Gaiman is finally achieving his dream of bringing it back to the screen.

The latest trailer for John Cameron Mitchell’s adaptation of the Neil Gaiman short story leans a little more into the alien weirdness the first trailer touched on—but it also shows us just how much is being added to the movie beyond the original tale.
Starz’s wonderful take on Neil Gaiman’s tale of modern day gods wasn’t the only great adaptation of American Gods we got recently.

Neil Gaiman’s collection of weird and haunting short fiction, Likely Stories, made the leap to TV recently, with a UK adaptation that aired on Shudder last year. Now, it’s making the leap back to print—but in the form of a new graphic novel adaptation courtesy of Fables artist Mark Buckingham.
Thirty years ago, the first Sandman comics introduced readers to Dream of the Endless and the denizens of the fantasy realm where he ruled. Neil Gaiman said goodbye to writing Sandman stories three years ago, but he’s coming back to oversee a bunch of new spin-off series published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint.
Adaptations can be a tricky thing—especially when the source material you’re working with is something like Good Omens.

Recently, a friend of mine and I had a conversation on Twitter about shipping. Specifically, that we share a Star Wars ship: Rey and Kylo Ren (please be kind, commenters). We shared a couple jokes and thoughts about The Last Jedi and Reylo, and then went our separate ways.
The more and more we see of Good Omens, the sadder it is that Neil Gaiman’s collaborator on the original novel, the departed Terry Pratchett, isn’t here to see his work come to life. But the BBC series, in some subtle ways, is planning at least one lovely tribute to the author.
Amazon’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens has a truly remarkable cast—but even then, rarely does it get as good as casting Jon Hamm as the Angel Gabriel. Now we know what he’s going to look like, and it’s pretty damn fabulous.
