American Gods season 2 is going to be premiering on Starz at some point in 2019, and this week, we’ve got some more news via the network about who will be appearing.
Dean Winters – The Oz and Law & Order: SVU actor is going to be playing the guest role of Mr. Town, described as follows: “A strong believer in progress, Mr. Town is tasked by Mr. World (Crispin Glover) to find out what Shadow (Ricky Whittle) knows about Mr. Wednesday’s (Ian McShane) plan. His brutal efficiency and technique just may get him the answers to his curious questions.”
Given how great Winters has been in other roles, isn’t it pretty easy to have some confidence in him here?
Devery Jacobs – Meanwhile, the First Nations performer is set to recur on this show as Sam Black Crow. Here’s a little more info: “Sam, a college student, is spiritually cynical for someone who claims to believe in so much. She lives life with fierce confidence and openness, selling the chainsaw art she carves by the roadside for extra money.”
Kayhun Kim – Finally, Kim is set to be New Media, who is the “goddess of global content — and in this age, a cyberspace chameleon, who is also a master of manipulation.” This is a move that was conceived somewhat following the departure of Gillian Anderson, who played the role of Media over the course of the first season. There are some key differences between the two characters, but the motives for them are probably the same: It’s a way to really show precisely how influential technology can be.
These castings, on the surface, all sound exciting for what we want American Gods season 2 to be — an exciting, action-packed series of stories that are creative, imaginative, and hopefully a worthy follow-up to the first season.
