What Is American Gods About
American Gods debuted on Starz in April 2017, and was a critical and fan hit. The series centers on Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle, The 100, Mistresses), an ex-convict who, after losing his wife in a tragic accident on the eve of his release from prison, is struggling to find his purpose. When charismatic
After centuries in America, borne to these shores by generations of people traversing the globe, the old gods are being lost and forgotten. As their religions and believers diminish, they are growing weak, fading away, and being wiped out by the new gods of Media, Technology, and Globalization. However, Mr. Wednesday is on a quest to recruit the old gods to pull together, to gather their strength, and go to war to save their very existence, and Shadow has yet to know his own mysterious role in this pending clash of the titans.

The cast of characters—and the cast that plays them—is as broad as the stories and histories represented. Featured actors include Emily Browning (The Affair) as Shadow’s dead-but-not-gone wife Laura, Pablo Schreiber as a volatile leprechaun Mad Sweeney, Peter Stormare as a god of darkness and death, Orlando Jones as trickster god Anansi, and a delightfully floral bedecked Kristen Chenoweth as Easter, as well as goddess of love Bilquis (Yetide Badaki), Anubis (Chris Obi), and Egyptian god Thoth (Demore Barnes).
The slick, flickering persona of the new gods’ leader, Mr. World, is played with glee by Crispin Glover, accompanied by Bruce Langley as Technological Boy, and Gillian Anderson as the shape shifting pop-culture channeling New Goddess Media. (Season 2 will see a new New Goddess of New Media rise in Kahyun Kim.)
After spending the first season building the team and laying the groundwork for what’s to come, on March 10, it’s show time and the gods are ready for war.
