“Amazon Prime Video has lifted back the curtain and revealed that American Gods season three will start streaming on Monday, January 11 2021, following its Starz premiere in the US the day prior.

Creator Neil Gaiman penned a heartfelt letter to accompany the announcement, where he explained that season three is jam-packed “full of drama and emotion, the very real and the utterly strange,” and “features some of the finest performances the show has yet seen”.

According to Gaiman, the American Gods ”had no idea how timely it would turn out to be” and that the new season will see Ricky Whittle’s Shadow Moon try to settle down in a town called Lakeside, just as he does in the original novel.

“At the same time, in season 3, we wanted to focus on the characters and their journeys,” Gaiman continued. “To show Shadow forging a path guided by the Gods of his ancestors, becoming more himself while deciding who he is and what side he’s on – humanity’s or that of the Gods.”
