Good news for bookworms and TV series buffs alike!
While Amazon Prime confirmed there will be a season 2 of the comedic fantasy drama Good Omens, Neil Gaiman also tweeted that his novel Anansi Boys will be appearing on the small screen.
Gaiman wrote, “I’ve been hinting for, well, over a year now, that there are two big TV shows I’m making. Last month, we announced Good Omens 2. Here’s a clue to what the other one might be…”
A plan is placed to adapt the book into a limited six-episode series and will start shooting in Scotland later this year according to a report published by Variety.
Anansi Boys is a fantasy novel written by Gaiman and published in 2005. It follows the story of Charlie Nancy, a young man who is usually picked upon and embarrassed by his father, Mr. Nancy—an incarnation of the West African trickster god Anansi.
Amazon Studios, The Blank Corporation, Endor Productions, and RED Production company are working together to produce the show. Currently, Gaiman has an overall deal with Amazon.
