Nearly sixteen years after it was released as a novel, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is finally coming to television this year. That is not news, to any fans of the book, it was teased last year that it was coming to Starz as a series. Since it’s announcement, there was no real word as to when the series would arrive to our televisions, but now we know that it is coming.
It was announced on Thursday that the series will debut on April 30th. Bryan Fuller is helming the series that he was supposed to work on in conjunction with Star Trek Discovery, but left Discovery to focus his full attention on Gods.
If you aren’t familiar with the story, it is about two factions of gods battling for control. The younger gods believe in materialistic pleasures, sex, drugs and embrace a modern sense of self and then you have the old guard that have lost dominance due to the modern sense of the American people.
You can check out the poster for the series below. The series stars Ricky Whittle (The 100), Ian McShane (Deadwood), Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), Emily Browning (Suckerpunch), Pablo Schreiber (Orange is the New Black), Kristin Chenoweth (Pushing Daisies) and Jeremy Davies (Lost).
American Gods will premiere on April 30 at 9 p.m. ET on Starz.
