Shadow is settling into the snowy town of Lakeside, WI in the new teaser trailer for the third season of Starz’s American Gods. The network unveiled the trailer after its panel session Friday at New York Comic-Con.
“It was the most efficient season yet, which was a great gift to have a knowledge of where your characters are going,” said Ricky Whittle, who plays Shadow on the series, which does not yet have a premiere date.
During his time in Lakeside, Shadow is trying to make his own path, guided by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas. But he’ll soon discover that this town’s still waters run deep, and dark, and bloody, and that you don’t get to simply reject being a god. The only choice — and a choice you have to make — is what kind of god you’re going to be.
Season 3, which will air in 2021, comes after some creative stumbles behind the scenes with The Walking Dead alum Charles “Chic” Eglee coming on board as new showrunner.
Today’s panel featured Whittle and co-stars Emily Browning (Laura Moon), Yetide Badaki (Bilquis), Bruce Langley (Tech Boy), Omid Abtahi (Salim) and series newcomer Ashley Reyes (Cordelia), as well as Neil Gaiman, who wrote the original book.
American Gods also stars Ian McShane, Crispin Glover as Mr. World, Demore Barnes as Mr. Ibis, Devery Jacobs as Sam Black Crow, Blythe Danner as Demeter, Marilyn Manson as Johan Wengren, Julia Sweeney as Hinzelmann, Iwan Rheon as Liam Doyle, Danny Trejo as Mr. World, Peter Stormare as Czernobog, Denis O’Hare as Tyr, Lela Loren as Marguerite, Dominique Jackson as Ms. World, Wale as Chango, Herizen Guardiola as Oshun, and Eric Johnson as Chad Mulligan.
Produced by Fremantle, the series is executive produced by Eglee, Gaiman, Anne Kenney, Damian Kindler, David Paul Francis, Mark Tinker, McShane, Craig Cegielski and Stefanie Berk.
