American Gods is down another key cast member. TVLine reports Kristin Chenoweth will not return for the Starz TV show’s second season.
Chenoweth plays the Germanic goddess Easter on the fantasy drama, which is based on the bestselling novel by Neil Gaiman. The cast also includes Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Yetide Badaki, and Bruce Langley.
Already, we’ve reported that Gillian Anderson will not appear in season two of American Gods. Now, Chenoweth is departing too. During a press event, Chenoweth revealed that her loyalty to former showrunner Bryan Fuller is what pushed her to leave the Starz series.
Fuller left American Gods after season one due to creative differences with producer Freemantle.
What do you think? Have you seen American Gods? Will you watch season two?
