American Gods returns in March 2019

The troubled series will finally come back next year.

The cast of American Gods.

American Gods season two will hit Amazon Prime Video next March.

The second season of the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s classic fantasy novel will begin airing on March 11th, 2019.

The series’ future was under question after original showrunner Bryan Fuller (of Hannibal fame) left the show, leaving it in jeopardy.

Now, after being in development for over a year, American Gods will come back to Amazon, which holds the rights to broadcast the series in the UK.

American Gods follows a man who gets embroiled in a battle between Old Gods and New Gods, who represent typically American modern cultures. 

Alongside the release date, a synopsis has been published, suggesting that season two will take the series to new heights. 

“In season two, the battle between Old Gods and New Gods continues to brew as we join Mr. Wednesday just a few short hours after his declaration of war and the epic showdown that ensued at Easter’s party. While Mr. World (Crispin Glover, Alice In Wonderland) plans revenge for Wednesday’s attack, Mr. Wednesday continues his quest to pitch the case for war to the Old Gods with Shadow, Laura (Emily Browning, Sucker Punch) and Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber, Orange is the New Black in tow. 

“When things don’t go as planned after an encounter at the House on the Rock, both Old and New Gods, as well as those they meet along the way, find themselves on quests across America — all destined in some way for Cairo, Illinois. Shadow will begin to understand this strange world of the gods and carve out a place in it as a believer in order to survive. But change will require sacrifice.”

Whilst the series has gone through “development hell”, the strong cast of American Gods could mean that season two is just as successful as the first. 

You can catch up with the full first season via Amazon Prime Video now.
