Trailer for Amazon Prime's American Gods Season 2

American Gods season two is almost here – and The Independent is happy to unveil an exclusive fresh piece of additional content ahead of the new episodes

Almost two years after the first season debuted, the series – an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel – is set to return with a run of episodes that will pick up where its predecessor left off: with Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) fully embracing the conflict between the old gods and the new as the “protector” of Mr Wednesday (Ian McShane).

Returning cast members include Crispin Glover who plays new god leader Mr World, and Emily Browning, the deceased wife of Shadow Moon.

New cast additions include House of Cards' actor Sakina Jaffrey, who’ll play Hindu goddess Mama-ji, while John Wick actor Dean Winters will appear as Mr Town.

Since its first season concluded, American Gods saw a shake-up as showunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green stepped down. Jesse Alexander – who served as an executive consultant on TV series Lost – will oversee season two’s eight episodes.
