American Gods season 3
Season 3 of American Gods began airing on Starz in the US on January 10th, 2021.
After 10 enthralling episodes, the season came to a captivating conclusion on March 21st in an episode that left jaws firmly planted on the floor.
Shadow spends much of the season 3 finale hanging from a mystical tree with its vines tightly wrapped around him as he undergoes a vigil for his recently deceased father, Mr Wednesday.
However, Shadow’s ordeal seems to have been part of Mr Wednesday’s plan to return to his true form, that of the Norse god Odin.
“A blood sacrifice by a son? Wow. That’s powerful enough to restore me to all my former glory. Odin the all-father, all-powerful once again,” Mr Wednesday explained.
Will American Gods return for season 4?
- American Gods will not be returning for season 4 as Starz has cancelled the series.
The announcement of American Gods’ cancellation came on March 29th, 2021 and follows a steady decline in viewing figures for the series.
According to Deadline, talks are reportedly ongoing about potentially ending the show with a TV movie or an event series in order to align with Neil Gaiman’s original novel.
After all, following the jaw-dropping cliffhanger ending of season 3, it would almost be criminal for the series not to return for a proper conclusion.
Ian McShane talks season 4
Speaking to Decider prior to the show’s cancellation, American Gods star Ian McShane said: “Who the hell knows what’s going to happen next about series four.
“At the end of Episode 10, we will have kind of done most of the book in the form up to a certain point. But then it gets interesting. Where do you go to then? You can go anywhere after that.”
Season 3 of American Gods came to an end on March 21st on Starz and its cancellation was confirmed on March 29th.
