Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming installment. Read at your own risk, Spoilers Ahead!
American Gods is a fantasy television show produced for Starz premium network. With its debut back in April 2017, the series won our hearts with its intense storyline. It revolves around Shadow Moon (Ricky White) and his unusual job offer from an odd man named Mr. Wednesday (Ian Mcshane). Soon after he accepts the work, Shadow finds himself entangled in major conflicts between old and new gods.
American Gods Season 3: Renewal
The fantasy series stands as one of the most successful dramas on Starz. Both the previous seasons worked well with the audience. Hence, the television network ended up being much confident about the show’s future. As a result, the series was instantly renewed within a week of Season 2’s conclusion.
The second installment took too long to return to the television again. Due to frequently changing showrunners, the series saw major delays in the filming schedule last year. Luckily, American Gods Season 3 is finally into productions now. Since Charles Eglee is set to serve as showrunner, the third season didn’t take long to begin the shoot.
The cast members began filming back in September 2019. Lead actor Ricky Whittle shared his delight through a social media post. He went on to thank the American Gods team and his fans for the soulful existence of the show. The productions are expected to continue upto March 2020.
American Gods Season 3: Cast Additions
The third season is going to have a bunch of exciting cast additions. As of now, we’re informed of just a few of them. The list includes two-time Emmy winner Blythe Danner for a four-episode arc. The veteran actress has done dozens of films and shows in her acting career. Moreover, Danner will play the role of Demeter, the Greek goddess of the harvest. The character is said to have an unresolved romantic history with Mr. Wednesday.
On the other hand, American Gods Season 3 is set to have another exciting addition to the cast. Brilliant singer-actor Marilyn Manson will now be a part of the upcoming season. He will be playing the lead singer of a Viking death metal group, Johan Wengren. Furthermore, Manson will recur for four episodes in the third installment.
When Will Shadow Be Back On Television?
The famous fantasy series is yet to have a firm premiere date. However, the production will certainly run upto March 2020. The installment will take a few months for post-production. This suggests that American Gods Season 3 has higher chances of release around May-June 2020. Although fans must wait for an official announcement by Starz network.
The third season will take us to Lakeside, Wisconsin, this time. Tired of the mess between the Gods, Shadow left his town in the previous season. The new location holds much importance for the fans of Neil Gaiman’s novel. Hence, we hope that Season 3 does justice to their expectations.
