The battle between the deities has barely begun but now it looks like we'll get to see more of the conflict. American Gods has just been renewed for a third season and will be bringing in yet another showrunner after Season 2.

According to Variety, The Walking Dead executive producer Charles 'Chic' Eglee will serve as showrunner for American Gods Season 2. In addition to that, he will also executive produce the Starz series.

Eglee is known for his work on TV shows like Dark Angel, Hemlock Grove, Dexter, and The Shield. He will replace current season showrunner Jesse Alexander, who had previously taken over for Season 1's Bryan Fuller and Michael Green.

Neil Gaiman, who wrote the novel, is delighted that American Gods has been renewed and is getting a new showrunner.

"I'm thrilled American Gods has been renewed for a third season, and even more thrilled that I'm getting to work on it with Chic Eglee," Gaiman said. "Chic is the best partner-in-crime. We've been working for weeks now on the shape of the season and I'm delighted that he gets to carry the American Gods torch on to glory."

The Good Omens co-author also made sure to extend his gratitude to the previous showrunners of the series.

"Thank you to Fremantle, Starz, and Amazon for having faith in the series, to Bryan, Michael, and Jesse for bringing it this far, to all the cast and crew, and most of all to the viewers. It's their love of the characters that took us to this point, and will take us on to the next chapter," he said.

American Gods airs every Sunday nights on Starz.
