Actor Ian McShane has said that the season of his hit show, "American Gods", will be closer to the book it is based on. The fantasy drama, which premiered on Starz in April 2017, is adapted from Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name.

It follows Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), who meets a strange man named Mr Wednesday (Ian McShane) after being released from prison, and soon becomes embroiled in a large-scale conflict between the Old Gods and the New Gods, who grow stronger each day. The season two of the show will premiere next month, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Talking about the show at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, McShane said, "Season 2 is really a great way back to the book, which I thought we got away from in season one... We needed to get back to the line in the book, which is reuniting Shadow with his story." "Gaiman wrote a great blueprint for a TV series that can go wherever it wants as long as it remains true to the roots," he added.
