It's been a rocky road, but American Gods season 2 is on its way - though fans will have to wait until 2019 to see it. Starz posted a video on Monday showing the cast and crew of the fantasy series (based on the Neil Gaiman fantasy novel of the same name) beginning production on season 2. It was said that Fuller and Green parted ways with the Starz drama after clashing with producer FremantleMedia over budget and creative direction for the second season of the series.

Season 2's cast includes Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday, Emily Browning as Laura Moon, Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney, Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy, Yetide Badaki as Bilquis, Bruce Langley as Technical Boy, Crispin Glover as Mr.

Following the rocky road and possible cancellation, "American Gods" has started its production for its upcoming season 2. In the teaser below, Gaiman shows off The House on the Rock-an essential location from Gaiman's source material that will be included in the second season.

"American Gods" has been translated into over 30 languages and earned numerous accolades including Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker Awards for Best Novel. It seems Season 2 will see Wednesday gather the Old Gods to discuss their plan to stop the New Gods.

With its premiere directed by Hannibal and Star Trek Discovery alum Chris Byrne, the eight-episode second season of American Gods is expected to air in 2019, as Whittle says in the BTS clip. Jesse Alexander is now taking over the duties with fellow showrunner and EP Gaiman.

Executive Producer and writer Neil Gaiman announced the start of filming in a new video that has been released online [see below]. Byrne is co-EPing along with Heather Bellson and Rodney Barnes.
