The hit STARZ show “American Gods” will finally answer some of the surreal questions posed in the season 2 finale. The show is returning next month, continuing the saga based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling novel on the clash between gods and humans.
The “American Gods” Season 2 finale ended with a bang, bringing more tension to the ongoing war and leaving the fate of many of the show’s characters up in the air. This season will see Shadow (Ricky Whittle) attempting to make his own path and forsake his destiny as a god. But he’ll quickly learn that no one can ever run away from their fate.
Here’s the official synopsis for “American Gods” season 3:
This season follows Shadow as he attempts to break away and assert himself as his own man, setting down roots in the idyllic snowy town of Lakeside, Wisconsin, where he’ll uncover a dark secret while exploring questions of his own divinity. Guided on this spiritual journey by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas, Shadow must decide exactly who he is—a god seeking veneration or a man in service of the “we.”
“American Gods” stars Ricky Whittle (“The 100“), Ian McShane (“John Wick“), Emily Browning (“Sucker Punch“), Yetide Badaki (“This Is Us”), Bruce Langley (“Deadly Waters”), and Omid Abtahi (“The Mandalorian“). Marilyn Manson (“Sons of Anarchy“) and Iwan Rheon (“Game of Thrones“) have joined the cast for season 3.
“American Gods,” returns on Sunday, January 10, 2021, at 8 PM ET/PT on STARZ in the U.S. It will also air internationally on Amazon Prime Video, beginning Monday, January 11. Catch up with the show’s previous seasons with STARZ’s “American Gods” marathon starting Saturday, January 9 at 12:00 PM ET/PT. Take a look at the new trailer below.
