Neil Gaiman fans have been not-so-patiently awaiting the premiere of the small screen adaptation of his best-selling novel American Gods since news first broke of its development last year. Since then, we’ve grasped onto every snippet of new information surrounding the series and its casting — Dane Cook as Shadow Moon’s best friend, Robbie? Kinda genius — and we’ve scoured the internet for set photos and related press releases.
Okay, so Joe and I have.
Seeing as this weekend arguably marks the biggest weekend for industry announcements and sneak peeks (because if you aren’t following the news coming out of San Diego Comic-Con, then what are you really doing with your life?), what better time to release the first trailer for the new series than now.
My Gods, it only makes the waiting worse.
Along with finally seeing that first meeting between Ricky Whittle’s Shadow Moon and Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednesday, Starz and series creator Bryan Fuller have truly breathed life into Gaiman’s epic cast of characters, from the proud Czernobog (Peter Stormare) to the seductive Bilquis (Yetide Badaki)… and yes, that one scene that you’re thinking of? It’s happening.
Can you wait for the series premiere in 2017? Because I’m having a really hard time with it now.
