Speaking about what fans can expect from the new series, creator Gaiman said he was surprised by how “timely” the third season felt.
He said fans would finally get to see Shadow Moon (played by Ricky Whittle) going to Lakeside and trying to “lose himself in normality” after leaving behind the grip of Mr Wednesday (Ian McShane).

Gaiman said as well as Shadow forging his own path with the help of the Gods of his ancestors, he would also be treading a fine line as he tried to decide whether he fell on the side of humanity or the Gods.
The acclaimed writer hailed the cast and said “favourite characters” would be brought back in some “remarkable new ways”.
There will also be further development of the other character arcs in the show with Gaiman teasing plenty of “drama and emotion”.
In a letter to fans, he wrote: “We knew also that we wanted to continue to root the show in the landscapes of America.
“To explore what ‘America’ means to its people and to talk about immigrants — about the very different people who came to this remarkable land and brought their gods with them.
“The new gods of phone and app and glitter demand our attention and our love, and the old gods want to mean something again.”
Gaiman went on to conclude: “The struggles of the gods and the people in season three of American Gods are the struggles of America.
“We didn’t think it would prove as timely when we plotted it, nor did I think the novel would still be relevant when I wrote it over 20 years ago.
“But I’m glad it’s happening now, in a year when it feels as though diverse stories are being heard, and honored [sic], and allowed to change the future.”
