The second season of American Gods, the Starz show based off Neil Gaiman’s award winning novel, officially has a premiere date and a new poster.
Announced by Starz, the eight-episode second season will premiere on Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT. Starz also announced that all eight episodes of the first season will air back-to-back on December 29, starting at 12pm PT/3pm ET.
The one-hour drama follows a war brewing between Old Gods and New Gods, as traditional gods lose believers to gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.
Season 2 sees the battle enter a crisis point as destinies of gods and men collide. Mr. World (Crispin Glover) plots revenge while Shadow (Ricky Whittle) and Wednesday (Ian McShane) attempt to convince the Old Gods to enact full-out war.
In our review of American Gods Season 1, we called the show “Great” saying “American Gods is unlike anything you’ve seen on the small screen before.” We learned earlier this year that Season 2 won’t get to Lakeside, but will visit Cairo and the 1930s.
