We’ve had our eyes on this one for a while, and meant to do a write-up when the trailer dropped a while back. But this week, Starz released the credits sequence for American Gods, the new trippy, mystical sort-0f adventure drama series which drops on April 30th, based on the book by Neil Gaiman, and now we’re all juiced up and have to spew our excitement.

Also expected are some highly entertaining performances, given not just the presence of Ian McShane, but a supporting lineup that includes Crispin Glover, Cloris Leachman, Kristin Chenoweth, Gillian Anderson, Pablo Schreiber, Orlando Jones, and Emily Browning. Come on, now. That’s a hell of a cast.
Even if you don’t know much about the book – and to be fair, it’s been a long time since we read it, so we’re pretty rusty on the particulars – this sure does look like a must-see to us. We’ll be there. And if we’re feeling it, we’ll be talking about the costume design a bit.
