American Gods author/executive producer Neil Gaiman offered up a sneak peek at Season 2 of the Starz drama Monday when he tweeted a photo of himself and new co-showrunner Jesse Alexander with the cast at a spot fans of the book will instantly recognize: House on the Rock in Spring Green, Wisc.
The show also tweeted video on Monday previewing the showdown of the gods (and Shadow) - including cast members Badaki, Ian McShane, Ricky Whittle, Orlando Jones, Omid Abtahi and Mousa Kraish - at the eclectic attraction. Thus, it seems like the sophomore season will finally feature Wednesday (McShane) gathering his fellow Old Gods at the Biggest Carousel in the World to discuss his game plan, which is one of the most memorable sequences from Gaiman's novel. The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society's modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.
The season one focused on Shadow Moon, who meets a unusual man named Mr. Wednesday after being released from prison, and soon becomes embroiled in a large-scale conflict between the Old Gods and the New Gods, who grow stronger each day. Executive producer Neil Gaiman made public his desire to stick with the series regardless, but Gillian Anderson exited the show after Fuller and Green left, and Starz reportedly had trouble finding producers willing to fill the roles of Fuller and Green.
