It’s taken an eon to finally descend from Olympus, but Starz and Bryan Fuller’s take on Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is finally going before cameras. Starz has announced the official start of production with new cast photos, while stars Cloris Leachman, Peter Stormare and more join the roster.

Having only recently table read, it could be some time before Starz’s American Gods delivers any real first look, but Bryan Fuller’s cast continually proves itself worthy of Olympus. Latest to join the series in God-ly roles are none other than Jonathan Tucker and Back to the Future icon Crispin Glover, but as whom?
TV viewers and Black Sails fans, you finally have something in common. Starz will join the ranks of TV channels offering their services to stream independent of any cable package, even tossing in the Outlander Season 2 premiere as an incentive.
The first season of Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead didn’t end with our beloved aging Lothario stockboy conquering his titular enemy (it’d be a short show if he did), instead taking an unexpected trip down south. Not Hell, but close! See Ash party chainsaw-style across Florida in our first official photo from Season 2!
Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods has been rather meticulous with the casting to date, and now the floodgates may have opened. Not only has Sean Harris joined in the favorite role of Mad Sweeney, but so too has American Gods found its Bilquis and Technical Boy.
The casting of Starz’s Bryan Fuller-adapted American Gods has been slow going, but grows more divine with every addition. After the casting of our Shadow Moon and Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednedsay, Emily Browning has joined American Gods in the role of Laura Moon, a “tricky character” from Neil Gaiman’s original novel.
As soon as The 100 fan-favorite Ricky Whittle was announced to lead Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods as Shadow Moon, CW viewers had to wonder if Lincoln’s days were numbered. Now, Whittle’s exit appears to have been confirmed, along with some surprising bad blood, revealed by none other than the actor’s mother.
Bryan Fuller may be busy putting mortals in space, but that hasn’t stopped him from appointing American Gods at home. Following the initial announcement of Shadow Moon, Fuller reveals that Deadwood’s foul-mouthed Ian McShane will take the coveted regular role of Mr. Wednesday, himself among the famed American Gods.
Outlander fans, your time is nigh. After a criminal wait between the two halves of Season 1, Starz has officially set a Season 2 premiere date for Jaime and Claire’s trip to France in April. Have a look-see with the first trailer and a new poster, and get those tongues a-waggin’, oh dear.
Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead earned itself a groovy Season 2 pickup before the first run even premiered, and now Bruce Campbell is already dusting off the chainsaw again. Joining Ash this year will be none other than cameo mainstay Ted Raimi, along with The Six Million Dollar Man himself, Lee Majors, in roles key to Ash’s childhood.
