Looks like the war between the "new gods" and "old gods" off-camera has finally reached a cease-fire (so fans can get back to the on-screen war they want to see), with Starz announcing their series adaption of Neil Gaiman's novel American Gods is retuning for its second season on Sunday, March 10, 2019, at 8 p.m. ET. – and will also be available the same day via the Starz app. Along with the premiere date, the cable network also released the official promo art/poster for the series (thanks, Vulture!):
First screened at this year's New York Comic Con (NYCC), here's a look at Starz's second-season teaser for the return of American Gods:
"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.
A council at the House on the Rock explodes into chaos, sending deities both Old and New on quests across America that will converge on Cairo, Illinois: forcing Shadow to carve out a place as a believer in this strange new world of living gods — a dark world where change demands commitment, and faith requires terrible sacrifice."
