  • American Gods: Season Two Production Begins for Starz Series (BTS Video)

Video streaming platform Amazon Prime Video has given the go-ahead for the second season of its original series "American Gods". A key portion of the book's narrative takes place at House on the Rock, and as Gaiman and then-showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green told TVLine a while back, American Gods shot them on location.

First released exclusively to Deadline, the clip gives fans glimpses at the cast as well as hints at what the upcoming season will feel like operating under a new showrunner.

With its premiere directed by Hannibal and Star Trek Discovery alum Chris Byrne, the eight-episode second season of American Gods is expected to air in 2019, as Whittle says in the BTS clip. Season two will also see the return of Mad Sweeney played by Pablo Schreiber (13 Hours), Tech Boy played by Bruce Langley and Kristin Chenoweth (Descendants) as Easter, in addition to some new unannounced characters. Season 2, it seems, will finally feature Wednesday assembling his fellow Old Gods at the Biggest Carousel in the World to discuss his game plan, in one of the most memorable sequences from Gaiman's novel.

American Gods is still a very important series for Starz just because it continues their association with a popular author and beyond that, features an exciting, dramatic story that is really different from something that you are seeing virtually anywhere else.

The season one focused on Shadow Moon, who meets a odd man named Mr. Wednesday after being released from prison, and soon becomes embroiled in a large-scale conflict between the Old Gods and the New Gods, who grow stronger each day. Byrne is co-EPing along with Heather Bellson and Rodney Barnes. SVP Original Programming Marta Fernandez and Manager of Original Programming Kathleen Clifford are the Starz execs in charge.
