American Gods - Season 2 - Gillian Anderson Not Returning

Thanks to Lady_Junky for the heads up.

Time will tell, but for now, Anderson says, “It has been an extraordinary gift and I'm incredibly grateful for the existence of Scully in my life and for the gift that Chris gave me in casting me, and my friendship with David, and it's been a wonderful run, but I've got other things to do.”

One of those things, unfortunately, will not be appearing again as the new god Media in the second season of “American Gods” on Starz. Anderson says the departure of showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green means she will not return to the show. She does, however, have two feature films slated for 2018, including the espionage comedy “The Spy Who Dumped Me” with Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, and Duchovny is about to set off on a tour of Australia and New Zealand in support of his upcoming album “Every Third Thought,” out digitally January 26.

“American Gods” and Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth and designer-turned-director Tom Ford were recognized for contributions to LGTBQ visibility on Sunday at the TrevorLive LA gala, held at the Beverly Hilton.

On the carpet, Chenoweth, who played the goddess Easter on the first season of Starz’s “American Gods,” said she was “devastated” when she found out that showrunners Michael Green and Bryan Fuller were departing ahead of Season 2, which Variety reported on Nov. 29.

“Bryan asked me to come on board,” Chenoweth, who also worked with Fuller on “Pushing Daisies,” said. “The cast, we all talk to each other and they’re getting together tonight, so we’ll see what happens next.”

With Fuller’s departure, her position on the series is now uncertain, Chenoweth revealed. “When Bryan was the showrunner, I was coming back for several episodes, but I don’t know now,” Chenoweth explained. “It depends on who it is and if they think I add value or not.”
