American Gods creator Neil Gaiman has officially announced the start of production on the second season of the critically-acclaimed show, which dropped its debut season previous year to much acclaim. He was at The House on the Rock with some of the cast members, and this is where the production of the show has started.
Just the fact that, despite some speedbumps, a second season is still happening and is now in production is great news.
It's been almost one year already since season one of American Gods came to a close. The fans will get to see a lot of familiar characters on the show, as the war between the Old gods and the New gods starts. Executive producer Neil Gaiman made public his desire to stick with the series regardless, but Gillian Anderson exited the show after Fuller and Green left, and Starz reportedly had trouble finding producers willing to fill the roles of Fuller and Green. "Things are gonna get darker, things are gonna get more unsafe". "Things are going to get more risky".
Based on the best-selling book of the same name, American Gods stars Ricky Whittle (The 100, Austenland) as protagonist ex-con Shadow Moon, Ian McShane (Deadwood, Pirates of the Caribbean) as Mr. Wednesday, and Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, Legend) as Shadow's wife, Laura Moon.
According to the network, production on the new season began at the Wisconsin roadside attraction, The House on the Rock, which is a quintessential location in Neil Gaiman's acclaimed contemporary fantasy novel.
Take a look at the video and image below. There may be more flashbacks in the film, like before, that will tell the story of people coming to USA, who bring their gods with them. The new hotness? Making fans wait 18 months or more! Though Season 1 debuted in April 2017 and concluded in June 2017, Season 2 won't premiere until sometime in 2019.
