Beyond that, it's going to be challenging for the show to be able to replicate the creative vision matched by the first season - Fuller has a style that is very visual by nature, and often uses imagery to cultivate emotion just as much as dialogue.
As for the duo's abrupt's exit, "they were not fired nor did they quit", Albrecht said. It's a little bit up in the air what their exact role will be.

"Bryan and Michael will be as involved as they can be, and a lot of that is between Fremantle and Neil and Bryan and Michael, because this is one of those shows that we do through a studio, and we're not in direct negotiations with the actual executive producers and the people who are working on the show.""Our partners at Fremantle are woking with Brian and Michael and their schedules, working out a way for them to continue to be involved", Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said at TCAs.

Gaiman previously tweeted that he would not be working as a showrunner on American Gods, because of his work on the TV adaptation of Good Omens.

However, his thinking may have changed since then.

Still, Albrecht said the network is committed to the show, which was given a quick Season 2 renewal early into its Season 1 run.
