The old gods are coming back! Almost two years after the first season wowed viewers, Starz's TV adaptation of American Gods is returning for its second season. At their New York Comic-Con panel on Friday afternoon, the cast and executive producer Neil Gaiman gave us a first look at what we can expect when the show returns in 2019.
The second season picks up right where we left off in the first, following the epic showdown at Easter's party. Shadow (Ricky Whittle) finally knows exactly who he's working for as he and Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) continue their cross-country road trip. The brief teaser gives us glimpses of the oncoming war between the old gods (including Yetide Badaki as Bilquis and Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy) and the new (Bruce Langley as Technical Boy and Crispin Glover as Mr. World). Laura Moon (Emily Browning) and Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber) go on an adventure of their own while, as Gaiman put it simply during the panel, "Things get worse for everybody in dramatically interesting ways."
While the teaser doesn't give an exact date for the start of season two, we do know it'll return in 2019 at some point! Given how the first season premiered in April, we can assume it'll be around the same time frame. Check out the full teaser above, and stay on your toes for more details as the season premiere gets closer.
