American Gods, Season 4 Updates:
The producers announced the renewal of the show for the third season in March 2019. Since then, there have been no updates about the upcoming season. The production of the third season was supposed to commence in March 2020 but has halted. The show is yet another victim of the pandemic. The fourth season too will come out later for sure. But when no one knows.
We can only hope and anticipate the third season to come out later this year. Again, the chances are very bleak and depend entirely upon the current situation.
