The first season finale of American Gods (Starz, Sundays, 9/8C) is the kind of flourish that has been set up from the opening moments of the series premiere when we learned how Odin became aware of the New World.

There are key moments for virtually every key character and several plot arcs converge in unexpected ways. It is a towering achievement television.

Mr. Wednesday Produces Second Season for American Gods!

American Gods – the elegantly odd series based on Neil Gaiman’s epic war-of-the-gods novel – has been renewed for a second season.

The series (and the novel) follows ex-con Shadow Moon and the mysterious Mr. Wednesday on a road trip across America to recruit old gods (Czernobog, Biquilz, Anubis) from many mythologies to his side for a war against encroaching modern gods (Media, Technical Boy).

American Gods runs Sundays (9/8C) on Starz.

Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods takes all manner of clichés and bends them and twists them until they emerge all shiny and new. It’s a new mythology; it’s a road trip; it’s a mismatched buddy movie, and more. And it’s absolutely brilliant.

Bryan Fuller has produced legendary TV like Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies and Hannibal – all absolutely brilliant. Michael Green, with whom he created TV’s take on American Gods (Starz, Sundays, 9/8C), has had equally wonderful shows – like Jack & Bobby, Everwood, Kings and The River.

Starz has released the opening credits for the premiere episode of American Gods – a series of mythical images given a 21st century spin.

They’re quite lovely in a moody, high-tech, glossy darkness kind of way.

There’s also a new trailer that looks at what Shadow Moon is getting himself into (that would be big trouble…).

American Gods, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, premieres on Sunday, April 30th (9/8C).
