American Gods Season 3: Here’s everything you need to know about the third season of the riveting fantasy drama on Starz and Amazon Prime Video.
American Gods is an American fantasy drama series based on Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name. Though the novel was published way back in 2001, it still continues to remain fresh in the minds of the readers. The reason for this is Gaiman’s wacky yet relatable characters, imaginative plot, and layered narrative.
The first season premiered on 30 April 2017 followed by another riveting season released in March 2019. The show was praised for its engaging and cohesive storytelling and stellar performances. Soon after the second season premiere, Starz renewed American Gods for the third season. The expectations are once high from this show. So, without any delay let’s have a detailed look at American Gods Season 3 release date, cast, and more details.
Season 3 expected plot
Neil Gaiman hasn’t revealed anything about the forthcoming season plot, but the author spoke about the appointment of Charles “Chic” Eglee (The Walking Dead) as the series’ new showrunner.
“I’m thrilled American Gods has been renewed for a third season, and even more thrilled that I’m getting to work on it with Chic Eglee. Chic is the best partner-in-crime. We’ve been working for weeks now on the shape of the season and I’m delighted that he gets to carry the American Gods torch on to glory.”, he said in a statement.
It is highly anticipated that the upcoming season will deal with Shadow Moon’s new identity, which he himself isn’t aware of. The end of the second season was beautifully staged and kept the audience hooked as to how the story will proceed. The season will also look into the character arc of Laura Moon and her journey. The season ended with a spectacular reveal and has the audience guessing as to how the proceedings will turn out to be.
Who’s in the cast for American Gods season 3?
The show is expected to retain core cast members including Ricky Whittle (Shadow Moon), Ian McShane (Odin/Mr. Wednesday), Emily Browning (Laura Moon), and Crispin Glover (Mr. World).
Musician Marilyn Manson, veteran actress Blythe Danner has joined the show for the third season as confirmed by Neil Gaiman. The two members who will not be in the third season are Orlando Jones, who played Mr. Nancy, and Mousa Kraish, who played Jinn.
Neil Gaiman revealed to Radio Times that veteran actress Blythe Danner will appear across four episodes as Demeter, the Greek goddess of the harvest with an “unresolved romantic history” with Mr. Wednesday and a bit of a problem – her involuntary commitment to a mental institution.
Production Update On American Gods Season 3
