American Gods news is rolling in! For a 2019 debut there is much more to announce and exciting news to come. We’re already getting some news as to new casting and a possibility of where the story might go. I for one have to catch up on the show, but I’m hoping that the second season stays as true to the book as what I’ve watched from the first season did!

‘American Gods’ Casts Mr. Town, Sam Black Crow & New Media Roles For Season 2 On Starz
The eight-episode second season of the well received drama based on Neil Gaiman’s fantasy novel American Gods, from FremantleMedia North America, is set to return in 2019. It will have Winters’ Mr. Town tasked by Mr. World (Crispin Glover) to find out what Shadow (Ricky Whittle) knows about Mr. Wednesday’s (Ian McShane) plan. His brutal efficiency and technique just may get him the answers to his curious questions.
First Nations actor Jacobs will recur as a college student named Sam Black Crow. She is spiritually cynical for someone who claims to believe in so much. She lives life with fierce confidence and openness, selling the chainsaw art she carves by the roadside for extra money.
Julliard alum Kim will recur as New Media, the goddess of global content — and in this age, a cyberspace chameleon, who is also a master of manipulation.
Jesse Alexander joined American Gods as executive producer and new showrunner for Season 2, replacing Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. He executive produces alongside Gaiman, Ian McShane, Craig Cegielski, Scott Hornbacher and FMNA’s Stefanie Berk. Chris Byrne is directing the premiere episode and will co-executive produce along with Heather Bellson and Rodney Barnes. Lisa Kussner will produce.
