I cannot contain my excitement for the news I am about to break to you!! In an official statement from STARZ, American Gods has announced the premiere date for their second season. Drum roll please!
March 10th at 8 pm! For those who don’t have a calendar in front of you, that’s on a Sunday and officially, only three months away!

Taking place after season one’s explosive season finale, the battle will move on where gods and men collide. We’ll see Mr. World plotting revenge in response to the attack in season one’s finale, Shadow making his stake with Mr. Wednesday, and Laura and Mad Sweeney in tow of the former’s journey to bring in the Old Gods for this war.
