American Gods: Season 3 Videos

Tv Season Info

"American Gods" is the epic story of an inevitable war building between the Old Gods of mythology and our New Gods of technology. Ricky Whittle ("The 100," Nappily Ever After) 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. However, 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.

Critic Reviews for American Gods Season 3

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

Series three is where the fever belatedly breaks and everyone involved takes deep breath. Oh miracle of miracles, American Gods may finally be watchable.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The one thing everyone can agree on is the road trip between Odin and Shadow is the heart of the show. As long as that part works, the show has a central axis on which to turn.

Will it finally put all the pieces together in the back half of the third season or maybe even the fourth? God only knows.

Jan 9, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

How many new converts will be lured in by these new episodes remains to be seen, but for the faithful "American Gods" delivers another religious experience.

Jan 12, 2021 | Full Review…

Thankfully, season three is a re-righting of the ship - though not without caveats.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's a new chapter and a welcome one. The stage is set for a satisfying season, and it won't disappoint.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 4.25/5 | Full Review…

Browning and Rheon have solid chemistry, but their characters make it seem as if American Gods isn't willing or able to try playing with new ideas in terms of story dynamics.

Jan 11, 2021 | Full Review…

There's little focus and disparate storylines, and American Gods doesn't seem interested in the deeper questions it once asked. Unlike the dead on the show that rise again, what made it special may not be able to come back.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Although a few of our favorite players are noticeably absent, there's enough potential in the season opener to get us suitably excited for what's to come -- and to give us the hope that the show might finally find its footing again.

Jan 11, 2021 | Full Review…

No amount of good acting, lavish costumes, and beautiful visuals can make up for the lack of interest the show seems to have in really investigating the heart of this American story.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

If last season left you feeling ambivalent about American Gods, the premiere might not be enough to win you back. But for viewers still committed to the show, there are a few bright spots... that indicate the season will be worth the investment.

    The first episode of season 3 was boring and all over the place
  • 3d ago
    This show went from one of my favorites in season one to never wanting to see it again in season two
  • 4d ago
    A good start to a show what did lost the focus. I'm still waiting the promised war.

    Honestly a little slow this season, but still a great watch. Some great surprising/mouth dropping moments. I would still highly recommend watching if you enjoy fantasy/drama shows.
