                            'American Gods' actor Mousa Kraish urges fans to show support for season 3: "Bring us back sooner than later"

'American Gods' season 2 concluded on April 28, with the season receiving mixed reviews for plotholes, but fans did get further invested in the series post the reveal about the character played by Paul Schreiber - Mad Sweeney - and his past, and his death on episode 7.

Even his chemistry with Shadow Moon's dead wife Laura Moon, who was a walking dead body, caught the attention of audiences and both were lauded for their great performances. Shadow Moon finally learned the truth about who Wednesday was, but the ratings for the second season dropped drastically. Despite all of this, the network announced that the show has been renewed for season 3 and Chic Eglee would be the showrunner. Mousa Kraish, the actor who plays the character of Jinn in the series now wants the show to return sooner rather than later and he took to Twitter to write about it.



Going with the theme of the show, Mousa wrote, "This basically is the theme of my life! Thanks for watching everyone. What a ride this season has been. Can’t wait for season 3 magic. @americangodsus & @AmGodsIntl bring us back sooner than later!! #AmericanGods," and added  "You guys are the fans. So if you want us back, you have to let the powers that be know how much you love us & see our story grow. Salim & Jinn only exist because of YOU!!! I know myself, @AbtahiOmid & the rest of the cast only exist because YOU BELIEVE!! #AmericanGods."

Neil Gaiman, one of the executive producers of the show and also the author of the book of the same name on which it is based, said he was thrilled by the renewal.

In a statement he 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. 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 also hoped that season 4 of the show would be greenlit sooner than later and said, "What I’m hoping is it's less about how long it’s going to take season three than getting a season four [renewal] once season three is underway so we can keep the writer's room on and get the scripts written."
