After a long while of waiting, American Gods has finally confirmed when the Starz drama will return for its second season, with a new behind-the-scenes teaser and photo.

Starz has shared a first look at filming on House of the Rock, the novel’s most famous location, which was teased in the Season 1 finale. While highlighting the return of cast members like Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Yetide Betaki, Mousa Kraish and Omid Abtahi, the official video also announces that the eight-episode return has been scheduled for a 2019 premiere.

Watch the clip below:

Executive producer and co-showrunner Neil Gaiman said of the return:

“The first season was all about getting to the House on the Rock. It’s amazing to see everyone back, and to be entering the next stage of the story with the best bunch of actors around, along with some inspired filmmakers.”

This press release also confirms other members of the returning cast, such as Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Orlando Jones, Bruce Langley, Crispin Glover, Cloris Leachman, Peter Stormare, Chris Obi and Demore Barnes. In fact, Gillian Anderson is the only Season 1 star who has been confirmed to not be returning, following the exit of Michael Green and Bryan Fuller as showrunners – although, Easter actress Kristin Chenoweth’s return is also unlikely, given her new role in NBC’s Trial & Error. American Gods was recently revealed to be casting a “New Media” role to replace Anderson, to be played by a 20-something Asian woman.

Season 2 has previously brought on board Star Trek: Discovery alum Jesse Alexander to sharing showrunner duties with author Neil Gaiman, as the creator was reported to be “unhappy with the direction Fuller and Green planned to take season two as their vision was not a straight adaptation of his source material.”
