The TV Adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods Looks Amazing

Bryan Fuller’s (and Michael Green’s) TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods/a really compelling reason to get Starz is almost upon us, and this first full trailer is everything we could’ve asked for it to be. If you’re still sad about Hannibal‘s (another Fuller-run show) cancellation and Fuller’s withdrawal from the new Star Trek series, it looks like you’re going to get a pretty sweet consolation prize when American Gods debuts on April 30—no network TV restrictions in sight.

In case you, for whatever reason, missed out on American Gods so far:

When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.
