Starz has released some wild new footage from Neil Gaiman’s American Gods season two, It released the first three minutes of the incredible fantasy drama. It focuses on Mr. World (Crispin Glover) calmly preparing for war with the old deities.
When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.
Season two will see “Mr. World task Mr. Town with hunting down Shadow (Ricky Whittle, The 100) and getting out what he knows about Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane, Deadwood)’s plan. Town’s methods are wildly effective and may help him get to the heart of his and World’s curious questions.”
American Gods also star Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) as Laura Moon and Pablo Schreiber (Orange is the New Black) as Mad Sweeney and Orlando Jones (Sleepy Hollow) as Mr. Nancy.
American Gods will air on Sunday, March 10th, 2019.
