Who's Who on American Gods

A guide to 19 characters from Neil Gaiman's book and the Starz series.

by | March 23, 2017 | Comments

To get ready for Starz’s new series American Gods, you could read the book by Neil Gaiman — all 700+ pages of it. (If you have the time, you really, really should.) It won’t completely spoil the show, as creators Bryan Fuller and Michael Green have promised to diverge from the novel and expand on some characters to give them more to do.

The cast of the series gave SXSW Film Festival audiences some insight into those characters when the show stopped in Austin, Texas, earlier this month to premiere the first episode. The producers, who also participated in the show’s panel at the annual fest, shed light on some of the characters who don’t appear until later in the first season.

Check out the gallery below before American Gods premieres at the end of April to learn more about the players in this epic battle between the classic and modern gods.

SPOILERS AHEAD!

American Gods premieres April 30 at 9 p.m. on Starz. Read Rotten Tomatoes’ interview with Fuller and Green here.
