It’s been some time since we had any significant updates on Bryan Fuller’s Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, and Shadow Moon is at last rising. Following word of an SXSW premiere, American Gods now sets its official Starz debut for late April, with some fresh key art to boot.

Bryan Fuller is no stranger to remixing and re-imagining established canon, as we’ll soon re-learn with Starz’s long-gestating adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. Now, a new photo reveals a fresh addition to Shadow Moon’s opposing deities, as Corbin Bernsen takes a role as the unofficial God of Guns.
It’s been some time since we’ve had any update on FX’s long-developing iteration of an even longer-developing Y: The Last Man TV series, and if ever we needed a TV series with powerful women at its center, now’s the time. To wit, reports indicate the series might finally have a showrunner, borrowing American Gods and Heroes alum Michael Green.
Few would argue that Deadwood alum Ian McShane made inspired casting for Bryan Fuller’s American Gods, but things could have been much, much weirder. According to Nicolas Cage (yes, that Nicolas Cage, just for re-emphasis), Starz’s hotly-anticipated series nearly cast him as Mr. Wednesday.
Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods has gone a bit quiet since the trailer premiere at Comic-Con and subsequent TCA panel, but a Fuller reunion is always worth the wait. Enter Pushing Daisies alum Kristin Chenoweth decked out as Easter, the latest American God given a photo tease.
You’ve waited, and we’ve certainly written enough stories without official photos, but American Gods is finally here! Straight from Comic-Con 2016, the first trailer for Bryan Fuller’s Neil Gaiman adaptation has arrived, plus bonus Pushing Daisies reunion with Kristin Chenoweth!
You’ve seen Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday, you’ve seen Mad Sweeney and the Technical Boy. Now, ahead of Starz’s American Gods debut at Comic-Con, sneak a peek at Yetide Badaki as the terrifying love goddess Bilquis, along with an official logo for the Bryan Fuller series, and more to come.
Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods has gone far enough into production for photos and a first trailer to arrive next week, that we wouldn’t necessarily expect any more significant additions to the cast. Not so, apparently, as comedian Dane Cook has apparently snagged a role in the new series, set to bow in 2017. Yes, Dane Cook.
The cast of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is an eclectic one, to say the least, while the first photos of Bryan Fuller’s Starz adaptation offered a taste of this wild, weird and colorful world. If you want to get Technical, take a look at the newest photo ahead of Comic-Con 2016, as Technical Boy gets a (retro) upgrade for 2017.
You didn’t think we’d make it through Comic-Con 2016 without worshiping Starz’s American Gods, or Ash Vs. Evil Dead, did you? Fear not, for those groovy gods have officially confirmed their panel plans for 2016, while a new photo teases Gillian Anderson as the God-ly Media.
