Following up the STARZ series look at what lies ahead for Shadow Moon's (Ricky Whittle), STARZ's adaptation of author and executive producer Neil Gaiman's American Gods rolled along on Wednesday with a look at the leader of the old gods' side of the war against the new gods, Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane)- but of course, we know him from a number of other names. In the clip below, McShane tells us that Wednesday is traveling the "forgotten coasts of America" as he looks to shift the tides of the war in his favor. As Shadow learns more about "dear old dad," it appears he'll also have a chance to meet his new "stepmom," Cordelia (Ashley Reyes).

"American Gods" is the epic story of an inevitable war building between the Old Gods of mythology and our New Gods of technology. Whittle stars as ex-con Shadow Moon, a man pulled into the service of the mysterious Mr. Wednesday, played by Ian McShane ("Deadwood", John Wick) — only to discover that not only is his charismatic but un-trustable boss actually the Norse All-Father god Odin, he's also…Shadow's father.

In Season Three, Shadow angrily pushes this apparent destiny away and settles in the idyllic snowy town of Lakeside, Wisconsin — to make his own path, guided by the gods of his Black ancestors, the Orishas. But he'll soon discover that this town's still waters run deep, and dark, and bloody, and that you don't get to simply reject being a god. The only choice — and a choice you have to make — is what kind of god you're going to be.
