The cable network claims that six new character promos will be out by this weekend.

New teaser trailers and story
The new teaser trailers of “American Gods” give glimpses of the characters of Cloris Leachman, Gillian Anderson, Corbin Bernsen, and Jeremy Davies. Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) is an intelligent man who unites with the Old Gods in a battle against the New Gods. In another promo, Shadow Moon is released from the jail. He has no money to run the family, so his wife, Laura Moon, decides to support the husband. Unfortunately, the lady dies of an infectious disease and her untimely death leaves a bad impact on Shadow.
The making of ‘American Gods’
“American Gods” is set to premiere on April 30, 2017. In 2016, it was stated that HBO is interested in adapting the novel into a TV show. Recently, Michael Green and Bryan Fuller spoke of the project's progress and confirmed that the series would premiere in the last week of April.
Though the story is inspired from a famous novel, the series contains new elements. Earlier this year, HBO's president Michael Lombardo revealed that the project was abandoned as they couldn’t get a decent writer to pen the script.
Michael states that the series follows the events of the book, but most of the events have been expanded to go beyond the characters of Shadow and Wednesday. Its first season consisted of eight episodes, and the shooting began in March 2015. During an interview with Cleveland, Fuller and Green discussed plans for the third season. The new season will cover the Lakeside section of Gaiman’s novel. Its first season received average reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, it had a 75% rating with a mean score of 7 out of 10 based on 21 reviews. On Metacritic, it scored 75 out of 100 based on 7 reviews.
Viewers in the US will have to wait for a few days to catch the first episode of season 2.
