About American Gods Season 3
American Gods chronicles a war brewing between the Old Gods of ancient mythological roots and the New Gods of modern technology. Ex-con Shadow Moon has spent two seasons following his mysterious boss Mr. Wednesday (aka the Norse All-Father Odin) around the country, only to discover at the end of last season that the Old God is actually his father.
This season follows Shadow as he attempts to break away and assert himself as his own man, setting down roots in the idyllic snowy town of Lakeside, Wisconsin, where he’ll uncover a dark secret while exploring questions of his own divinity. Guided on this spiritual journey by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas, Shadow must decide exactly who he is—a god seeking veneration or a man in service of the “we.”
Dominque Jackson as Ms. World: As leader of the New Gods, Mr. World must adapt with the times, taking on a new form when it suits his purposes this season—Ms. World. World is looking to control destiny with a mysterious new piece of technology that, if brought online, will have the power to dominate humanity’s attention. And in this modern age, attention is worship.
Eric Johnson as Chad Mulligan: As Chief of Police in the sleepy town of Lakeside, Wisconsin, Chad Mulligan spends his days mediating disputes between townsfolk he’s known his whole life. This trademark low-key diplomacy works well for Chad until a local teenage girl goes missing, igniting a panic of paranoia and blame that threatens to tear Chad’s beloved town apart.
Ashley Reyes as Cordelia: Cordelia was a whip smart but rebellious college dropout facing mounting legal bills and student debt before Mr. Wednesday arrived in her life. Now, she road trips across the country meeting her boss’ eccentric friends and helping him with “tech stuff,” unaware she’s caught up in a divine battle for the soul of America.
Herizen Guardiola as Oshun: Oshun is a Yoruban goddess of love, purity, fertility who uplifted and empowered the enslaved people who built America. While known as the maintainer of balance, and the mother of sweetness, Oshun is formidable and known for her spiritual strength. This season, Oshun and her fellow Orishas play a mysterious but vital role in Shadow's spiritual awakening.
