Neil Gaiman Reveals the Future of American Gods

io9 has a great interview with Neil on the upcoming HBO series.

Obviously, everyone is really excited about the show and its being six seasons long. Do you have any definite plans or ideas you’re excited about?

We want to keep as much of the book in as possible, because that’s what everybody fell in love with. I don’t know how much I can say. My whole thing is trying not say anything until everyone is cast, you’ve got a pilot that’s been filmed that everybody loves and you’ve got a go-date. Talking too much about things is, I think, always foolish. I will say that currently the plan is basically the book American Gods is the first season. We have many plans beyond that, but the book will be the first season.

Yes, I’m excited!
