Amazon has released a new trailer for American Gods, Neil Gaiman’s fantasy drama which will be available to Prime members in the UK on 1st May.
Based on the award-winning novel of the same name, the series stars Ricky Whittle (The 100, Austenland) as protagonist ex-con Shadow Moon, Ian McShane (Deadwood, Pirates of the Caribbean) as Mr. Wednesday who enlists Shadow Moon as part of his cross-country mission, and Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, Legend) as Shadow’s wife, Laura Moon.
The show also features Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) as Media, the mouthpiece for the New Gods, Pablo Schreiber (13 Hours, Orange Is the New Black) as Mad Sweeney, Yetide Badaki (Aquarius, Masters of Sex) as Bisques.
American Gods uncovers a power struggle between the traditional gods of mythological roots and an upstart pantheon of gods whose behaviour reflects modern society’s love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.
