Starz is seeking to join the likes of Every Other Network, and are offering American Gods as the perfect example. The series has officially received a full-fledged trailer, and is expected to be a hit. Even if for some bizarre reason it isn’t, it’ll sure be pretty to look at.

American Gods premieres on Starz on April 30th, 2017.

When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew, a storm that will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent death of his wife, and hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand — a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods. 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. Adapted from Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green serve as showrunners.
