American Gods Releases a Bunch of Character Posters

Executive Producer Bryan Fuller released a whole bunch of new character posters via Twitter for his upcoming new television series on STARZ, American Gods. Shown are most of the major players in the series. You can click on the pictures below to get a full look.

Adapted from Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel of the same name, the show follows Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) who is thrown into a war between the gods of the old world versus the new.

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 hidden 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.

American Gods stars (as pictured below) Ian McShane, Ricky Whittle, Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Peter Stromare, Orlando Jones, Kristen Chenoweth, Yetide Baraki, Crispin Glover, and Bruce Langley. The show premieres on STARZ April 30, 2017.
