The Neil Gaiman fantasy drama returns.
In a hidden world where magic is real, the Old Gods fear irrelevance among modern deities in the fantasy drama American Gods.
A former convict meets a con artist who also happens to be the Norse god Odin. Together, they seek to build a dream team that combats the modern forces of the New Gods, including globalization, technology, and new media. Inspired by Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name, the Emmy-nominated American Gods is one of the most addicting fantasy shows since Game of Thrones.
