It was only back in January that we shared the trailer for the second season of “American Gods” which airs on the Starz Network and if you missed that trailer please just click HERE to be up to date with the rest of us. This season begins tonight on the Starz network which is a premium channel from your cable provider and it will be episodic as opposed to something that you can sit and binge. Let’s take another look at the premise and casting along with the poster for the season.
The Premise: When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he enters a world he does not understand and meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday. Left adrift by the recent death of his wife, Shadow is hired as Mr. Wednesday’s assistant/bodyguard. He finds himself in a hidden world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, including Technology and Media. In a grand plan to combat the threat, Mr. Wednesday attempts to unite the Old Gods to defend their existence and rebuild the influence that they have lost, leaving Shadow struggling to accept this new world and his place in it.

I once said that there was never a better time to be a fan of comic books and the vivid stories that come from them and are now finding themselves to the big and small screen. The CW Entertainment network has a half dozen DC Comics superhero shows and now a popular Dark Horse Comics title “American Gods” is getting a second season for its tales. The show is based on the novel by the great Neil Gaiman and the first official trailer for this new season is down below. I’ve also added some premise and the massive casting from last season for those who might only just be learning about the series. Take a look.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve already stated that I am not sure about catching this one right away but the DVR allows for easy binge watching. Have any of you readers sunk your teeth into the original novel at all? I know there is a comic book hitting the stands as well and perhaps I will add that to our narratives as well in the comic book review area. Tell me below if you will be watching. I’d like to hear.
So I’m going to admit to you all that I am not really on point about this one. I never read “American Gods” even though its by the great Neil Gaiman but I did know about the upcoming series thanks to the fine folks at Dark Horse who we see every year at Toy Fair. It seemed that not only would they be publishing a limited series comic book but also a line of products related to the upcoming live action drama which will air on the Starz network. Check out the first trailer, or what I believe to be the first trailer 😀
