Are you going to write any of episodes in Season 2?
Gaiman: I don't know. I had to write six full hours of television for Good Omens, so that kind of took up my script-writing time this season, although I did little bits of writing around the edges for American Gods. Mostly, it was weird things where they'd phone me up and say, "We want to know more about Mad Sweeney. Do you have more about Mad Sweeney than is in the book?" "Why, yes, I do!" "Would you write it all down for us?" So I would write about the 6,000 years of Mad Sweeney stories. And they'd say, "Can we use this?" "Of course!"
We have an animated bit in the beginning of Episode 5. The script, as written, didn't actually work once you put the narration together with the animation. I remember watching it and thinking, "Oh, wow, this is really good, but..." And I said to Michael, "You need much better narration to get the story to work. The animation needs it." And he was like, "Yeah, you're right. When can you get it done by?" So then I'd write the animation narration. So it was fun feeling like I was out there, and my executive producer job was a real job. But we'll see if I get to write a full episode for the next season. It depends on how far through my novel I am at the time.
