American Gods: Season 2, the continuing saga of the fantasy battle between new and old gods based on Neil Gaiman’s bestseller, arrives on digital July 22 and Blu-ray (plus digital) and DVD Aug. 20 from Lionsgate.
Renewed for a third season on the heels of the Starz Original’s sophomore debut, “American Gods” stars Ricky Whittle (“The 100”), Golden Globe winner Ian McShane (2004, Best Television Actor – Drama Series, TV’s “Deadwood”; John Wick, Hellboy), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, Sleeping Beauty), and Pablo Schreiber (“Orange Is the New Black,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” 13 Hours).
In season two, the battle moves inexorably towards a crisis point as the destinies of gods and men collide. While Mr. World plots revenge for the attack against him in season one, Shadow throws in his lot with Wednesday’s attempt to convince the old gods of the urgency for full-out war, with Laura and Mad Sweeney in tow.
The release includes three featurettes:
- “The House on the Rock: Setting the Stage,” a closer look at the location;
- “The Second Coming: Neil Gaiman on Season Two”; and
- “Gods and Ends: Random Musings from the Cast.”
