Take a trip back to Reykjavik with Neil Gaiman, as he reveals the origins of his epic story. American Gods premieres on Starz on April 30 in the US, and on Amazon Prime Video on May 1 outside of the US.
Based on the international best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman, American Gods follows Shadow Moon as he embarks on a road trip across America with the enigmatic conman Mr. Wednesday. On their journey, Shadow discovers that Mr. Wednesday is in fact one of the old gods brought to this country by settlers long ago, who warns of a war brewing between the forgotten old gods of myth and the new American Gods of money, technology and media. And as Shadow finds himself evermore deeply embroiled in this world of gods among men, he has a choice to make. Should he follow Mr. Wednesday into battle and find out more about his own mysterious past or attempt to reconcile with his recently deceased wife?
Brought to the screen by executive producers Bryan Fuller (Hannibal), Michael Green (Heroes) and Neil Gaiman, American Gods stars Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday, Emily Browning as Laura Moon, Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney and Gillian Anderson as Media.
