The long-awaited season three of American Gods launches globally on Starz, January 10th, 2021.
American Gods chronicles a war brewing between the Old Gods of ancient mythology and the New Gods of modern technology. Shadow Moon spent two seasons accompanying his boss, Mr. Wednesday, around the country, only to discover the Old God is actually his father.
This season, Shadow attempts to break away and assert himself as his own man. Putting down roots in the idyllic, snowy town of Lakeside, Wisconsin, he uncovers a dark secret while exploring questions of his own divinity. Guided on this spiritual journey by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas, Shadow must decide exactly who he is.
The Knockturnal had the pleasure of speaking with Ricky Whittle, Yetide Badaki, and Bruce Langley about their favorite scenes and why American Gods is arguably the most timely show out there.
