Amazon Prime Video greenlights second season of American Gods

Putting out a new season of television each year is so 2016.

Just the fact that, despite some speedbumps, a second season is still happening and is now in production is great news.

American Gods has started work on its second season and according to Neil Gaiman, they are ready to rock - literally. The location is home not only to many unique collections but also serves as a backdrop to a pivotal moment in the series and book.

"The first season was all about getting to the House on the Rock", says executive producer Neil Gaiman, "It's fantastic to see everyone back, and to be entering the next stage of the story with the best bunch of actors around, along with some inspired filmmakers".

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.

American Gods is the latest show to take 2018 off following Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, Rick & Morty and others.

The season one focused on Shadow Moon, who meets a odd 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.

Excitement is also now building for the Prime Original series Good Omens, based on the hugely-popular novel written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, which will launch on Prime Video around the world in 2019. Jesse Alexander is now taking over the duties with fellow showrunner and EP Gaiman. Chris Byrne ("Star Trek Discovery" "Hannibal") is directing the premiere episode and will co-executive produce along with Heather Bellson and Rodney Barnes.
