Gillian Anderson Won’t Return as Media in Season Two of ‘American Gods’

One of the more inspired bits of casting in Starz’s television adaptation of American Gods was Gillian Anderson as ‘Media.’ Sadly though, it looks like she won’t be back when the show returns for it’s second season.

It was first reported an article on The X-Files in the LA Times earlier this week. After mentioning how Anderson may not return as Scully after this season, they reported:

[She] 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.

Fuller and Green left the show back in November, and have still not been replaced by the network as showrunners and producers. Honestly, this is not a good sign for the show, and there are fears that more of the cast may end up departing.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
