Starz announced through their American Gods twitter that the show has started production and is set to return in 2019. After much speculation about the direction of the show, especially after the departure of the EP’s and key actors, it finally feels like we can breath just a bit easier. American Gods is coming back for Season 2 and from the preview posted…WE’RE NOT READY!
In the preview, the cast and EP’s have started filming at one of the most notable places from Neil Gaiman’s iconic book, The House on the Rock. Just from the look of it you know that things are going to get weirder, darker, and even more topsy turvy for Ricky Whittle’s character Shadow Moon and his companion Mr. Wednesday, played by Ian McShane.

Even Bruce Langley, who plays Tech Boy, got in on the fun and posted a production photo of him being surrounded by over a dozen cameras, with the caption, “I still don’t think they had enough cameras on me…”
