American Gods — Seasons 1–3: The Complete Series is being released on DVD March 1 from Lionsgate.
Set in a hidden world where magic is real and gods exist on earth, “American Gods” chronicles the brewing war between Old Gods and New Gods, as the traditional gods of mythology are steadily losing believers to a burgeoning pantheon of modern gods focused on technology and money. The story across three seasons centers around ex-convict Shadow Moon, bodyguard for the mysterious Mr. Wednesday, an Old God trying to rebuild the power and influence the Old Gods once had. As events unfold and Shadow struggles with his identity and place in the world, the series examines humanity’s conflicted relationship with faith and the unknown.
The series is based on the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman and created by Bryan Fuller (“Star Trek: Discovery,” “Hannibal,” “Dead Like Me”) and Michael Green (“Heroes,” Logan, Blade Runner 2049). Stars include Ian McShane, Ricky Whittle, Emily Browning, Orlando Jones, Pablo Schreiber and Crispin Glover.
