Streaming service Amazon Prime Video has announced three new cast members will be joining the second season of the Starz original series American Gods
Dean Winters (Divorce, John Wick), Devery Jacobs (Cardinal, This Order) and Kahyun Kim (Shameless, Freaky Friday) have been cast as Mr. Town, Sam Black Crow and New Media respectively. Season two of the eight-episode one-hour scripted series will return to Amazon Prime Video in 2019 in both Australia and New Zealand.
Dean Winters’ character Mr. Town is a strong believer in progress, as he is tasked by Mr. World (Crispin Glover) to find out what Shadow (Ricky Whittle) knows about Mr. Wednesday’s (Ian McShane) plans by any means necessary.
Devery Jacobs’ character Sam Black Crow is a college student who is spiritually cynical for someone who claims to believe in so much, all while selling the chainsaw art she carves by the roadside for money.
Kayhun Kim will take on the recurring role of New Media, the goddess of global content, as she thrives in the modern age as a cyberspace chameleon and a master of manipulation.
American Gods is produced by Fremantle Media North America, with Jesse Alexander (Hannibal, Heroes) serving as showrunner and executive producer for the upcoming season.
American Gods season two will premiere sometime later in 2019.
