THE ONLY CHOICE A GOD DOESN'T GET TO MAKE ... IS WHETHER TO BE A GOD STARZ RELEASES TEASER TRAILER FOR SEASON THREE OF "AMERICAN GODS" EXCLUSIVELY AT NEW YORK COMIC CON
ADDITIONALLY, STARZ UNVEILS FIRST-LOOK PHOTOS FROM
SEASON THREE, WHICH RETURNS IN EARLY 2021
Santa Monica, Calif. - October 9, 2020 -- Starz, a Lionsgate Company (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), released, today, the first teaser trailer and imagery for season three of the STARZ Original series "American Gods." Based on the international best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman, the teaser dropped with a glitchy interruption from the New Gods, following the show's virtual panel at New York Comic Con this evening. Starz also revealed two first-look photos from the new season.
The panelists appearing at the New York Comic Con virtual event included series creator and American Gods author, Neil Gaiman, as well as "American Gods" cast members, Ricky Whittle ('Shadow Moon'), Emily Browning ('Laura Moon'), Yetide Badaki ('Bilquis'), Bruce Langley ('Tech Boy'), Omid Abtahi ('Salim') and series newcomer, Ashley Reyes ('Cordelia').
"American Gods" is the epic story of an inevitable war building between the Old Gods of mythology and our New Gods of technology. Whittle stars as ex-con Shadow Moon, a man pulled into the service of the mysterious Mr. Wednesday, played by Ian McShane ("Deadwood", John Wick) - only to discover that not only is his charismatic but un-trustable boss actually the Norse All-Father god Odin, he's also... Shadow's father.
In Season 3 Shadow angrily pushes this apparent destiny away, and settles in the idyllic snowy town of Lakeside, Wisconsin - to make his own path, guided by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas. But he'll soon discover that this town's still waters run deep, and dark, and bloody, and that you don't get to simply reject being a god. The only choice - and a choice you have to make - is what kind of god you're going to be.
"American Gods" also stars Crispin Glover ("Back to the Future") as Mr. World, Demore Barnes ("12 Monkeys," "Waco") as Mr. Ibis, Devery Jacobs ("Cardinal," "The Order") as Sam Black Crow, Blythe Danner ("Huff," "Will & Grace") as Demeter, Marilyn Manson ("Salem," "Sons of Anarchy") as Johan Wengren, Julia Sweeney ("Shrill," "Saturday Night Live") as Hinzelmann, Iwan Rheon ("Game of Thrones," "InHumans") as Liam Doyle, Danny Trejo (Machete) as Mr. World, Peter Stormare ("Fargo," "Prison Break") as Czernobog, Denis O'Hare ("True Blood," Dallas Buyers Club) as Tyr, Lela Loren ("Power," "Altered Carbon") as Marguerite, Dominique Jackson ("Pose") as Ms. World, Wale (American Honey, "Godfather of Harlem") as Chango, Herizen Guardiola ("The Get Down") as Oshun, and Eric Johnson ("The Girlfriend Experience," "Vikings") as Chad Mulligan.
Produced by Fremantle with Executive Producer Charles H. Eglee serving as Showrunner, alongside Executive Producers Neil Gaiman, Anne Kenney, Damian Kindler, David Paul Francis, Mark Tinker, Ian McShane, Craig Cegielski, and Stefanie Berk, "American Gods" returns for its third season in early 2021 on STARZ.
