Meet Mr. Moon and Mr. Wednesday in First American Gods Trailer

After years of being teased of an adaptation for Neil Gaiman‘s American Gods, Starz finally pulled the trigger and has now released a preview for the 2017 series!  It’s pretty brief but it does a nice job showing Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday and the other new and old dieties in this world.

The reveal was made during the Starz panel at SDCC 2016 and featured Director Bryan Fuller and Kristen Chenoweth who is playing Easter in the series.

When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.

So far, it looks like American Gods is off to a strong start but we won’t know for sure until the series comes out next year!
