MUMBAI: We are excited to share with you the trailer for the next season of the Prime Original series, American Gods, which will be coming back to Prime Video on March 11, 2019. The eight episode season will be available exclusively for Prime members in more than 200 countries and territories, excluding the U.S, with new episodes release weekly.

The YouTube link to the trailer here.

Starring Ricky Whittle (The 100, Nappily Ever After) as Shadow Moon and Ian McShane (“Deadwood”, John Wick) as Mr. Wednesday, American Gods is a one-hour drama adapted from Neil Gaiman’s best-selling novel about a war brewing between Old Gods and New Gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.

We were forged in God’s image, but the Gods are also made in ours — and in Season Two the battle moves inexorably toward crisis point as the destinies of gods and men collide. While Mr. World plots revenge for the attack against him in Season One, Shadow throws in his lot with Wednesday’s attempt to convince the Old Gods of the case for full-out war, with Laura and Mad Sweeney in tow. A council at the House on the Rock explodes into chaos, sending deities both Old and New on quests across America that will converge on Cairo, Illinois: forcing Shadow to carve out a place as a believer in this strange new world of living gods — a dark world where change demands commitment, and faith requires terrible sacrifice.

American Gods also stars Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, The Affair) as Laura Moon, Pablo Schreiber (First Man, Orange is the New Black) as Mad Sweeney, Crispin Glover (Back to the Future, Alice In Wonderland) as Mr. World, Orlando Jones (Madiba, Sleepy Hollow) as Mr. Nancy, Yetide Badaki (Aquarius, This Is Us) as Bilquis, Bruce Langley (Deadly Waters) as Tech Boy, Mousa Kraish (Superbad, Transparent) as The Jinn, Omid Abtahi (Damien, Legends) as Salim and Demore Barnes (12 Monkeys, Waco) as Mr. Ibis. Guest stars include Cloris Leachman (Malcom in The Middle, Raising Hope) as Zorya Vechernyaya, Peter Stormare (Fargo, Prison Break) as Czernobog, and joining Season Two are Sakina Jaffrey (House of Cards, The Blacklist) as Mama-Ji’, Dean Winters (Divorce, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) as Mr. Town, Devery Jacobs (Cardinal, The Order) as Sam Black Crow and Kahyun Kim (Adam Ruins Everything, Shameless) as New Media.

 Written by Neil Gaiman in 2001, American Gods has been translated into over 30 languages and earned numerous accolades including Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker Awards for Best Novel.  

American Gods will be available for Prime members to stream or download and enjoy anytime, anywhere at no additional cost to a Prime or Prime Video membership in more than 200 countries and territories. Members can watch via the Prime Video app on Fire TV stick, compatible Android and iOS phones and tablets, popular LG and Samsung Smart TVs, Android TV by Sony, Sony PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox One, Apple TV 3 or 4, or online at PrimeVideo.com.

American Gods is produced by Fremantle. Jesse Alexander, Neil Gaiman, Craig Cegielski, Scott Hornbacher, Ian McShane, Stefanie Berk, Christopher J. Byrne and Padraic McKinley serve as executive producers.
