American Gods returns to Prime Video on the 11th of March with the launch of the first episode of Season Two. New episodes will follow weekly.
In season two, the battle between Old Gods and New Gods continues to brew as we join Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane, Deadwood) just a few short hours after his declaration of war and the epic showdown that ensued at Easter’s party. Shadow (Ricky Whittle, Austenland) will begin to understand this strange world of the gods and carve out a place in it as a believer in order to survive. But change will require sacrifice.
Speaking at the London screening event last week, the stars of the show discussed the upcoming season.
Ian McShane spoke about the return of season two, saying, “You need to reward the viewer and we’re doing that, this season we’re getting back to the book. You will get to see this fantastic cast interacting more.” He also had high praise for the writer, stating “Gaiman’s writing in this thing is like magic metamorphasised. American Gods is a complicated show.”
Emily Browning spoke about her character’s relationship with Mad Sweeney, “We definitely… evolve. But that’s all I can really say. However, Laura’s arc shifts a little bit when she meets Mr. Wednesday…”
Ricky Whittle spoke about getting into shape for the new series. “It’s really tough, because everyone else goes home and learns their lines. I have to do that, but I also have to hit the gym, maintain a certain amount of calories… [Ian McShane snores for comic effect]”.
Season Two of American Gods is available on Prime Video 11th March, with new episodes launching weekly.
