American Gods: Tech Boy Will Make Season 3 "Deliciously Uncomfortable"

Just because it's the day after Thanksgiving doesn't mean STARZ's adaptation of author and executive producer Neil Gaiman's novel American Gods is taking the day off to rest its full belly- not when there are still gods left to be introduced before the show's third-season return on January 10, 2021. This time up, it's Tech Boy's (Bruce Langley) turn in the spotlight- though we're not sure that's exactly where he wants to be. On one hand, the new season will find the new god learning a bit of autonomy- a situation he's never found himself in before. On the other hand, World (Crispin Glover, Danny Trejo, and Dominique Jackson) isn't too happy with Tech Boy right now, so he's got one shot left to make things right.

For a look at what Langley has to say about a Tech Boy who's on the clock and about to make things even more "deliciously uncomfortable," check out the following clip:

"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.

STARZ'S American Gods stars Ricky Whittle (The 100, Austenland) as 'Shadow Moon,' Ian McShane (Deadwood, Ray Donovan) as Mr. Wednesday, Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, The Affair) as Laura Moon, Yetide Badaki (Aquarius, This Is Us) as Bilquis, Bruce Langley (Deadly Waters) as Technical Boy, Omid Abtahi (The Mandalorian, Damien) as Salim, Ashley Reyes (Night Has Settled) as Cordelia, Crispin Glover (Back to the Future) as World, Demore Barnes (12 Monkeys, Waco) as Mr. Ibis, Devery Jacobs (Cardinal, The Order) as Sam Black Crow, and Blythe Danner (Huff, Will & Grace) as Demeter.
