Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys to become Amazon series separate from canceled American Gods



Anansi Boys, Neil Gaiman's spin-off to his acclaimed American Gods novel, is getting a TV adaptation after all these years. Amazon Studios has greenlit a six-episode limited series with plans to start shooting in Scotland later this year. 

Anansi Boys centers on the family of Mr. Nancy, the African trickster god Anansi. It's a story about Charlie Nancy, who learns that his recently deceased father is none other than Anansi. On top of that, he has a brother he never knew about who's entering his life and making it more dangerous.

Mr. Nancy appeared on Starz's series for two seasons, Orlando Jones played him and helped write for the drama.

The show will be separate from Starz's American Gods.
