The warring old and new gods are back in American Gods S2 teaser trailer

The second season of American Gods, the Starz adaption of Neil Gaiman's 2001 novel, has been plagued for months by production turmoil, including the recent sidelining of its replacement show runner. So there's been some skepticism among fans of the series that season 2 could live up to the darkly haunting tone of the well-received first season. Now we have our first teaser trailer, and honestly, it looks quite promising, even we mostly just get tantalizing glimpses of the returning cast.

(Mild spoilers for season 1 below)

The central character in American Gods is Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), a recently released convict whose wife, Laura (Emily Browning) is killed in a car crash the day he is supposed to be coming home. Numb with grief, he falls in with the mysterious Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) and becomes his bodyguard. But Mr. Wednesday is not who he seems. He's actually the ancient Norse god, Odin, seeking to rally all the remaining Old Gods, who are slowly dying off from peoples' lack of belief. Their mission: beat back the encroaching influence of all the New Gods so they can survive.
