Here’s a quick intro to some GODS apart of the show..
“Bilquis” played by (Yetide Badaki) , is a succubus-like goddess of love,
In the Abrahamic tradition, she’s the queen of Sheba, and in some legends…half human…half demon.
Without proper worship though, she has become a prostitute in America, taking love and bodies of men as a tribute.
In order to understand things… You’ve got to have the POWER to believe! #believeinstories 🎩
Meet Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones). In the folklore of the Asante people of Ghana…there is a trickster named Compé Anansi, associated with the sky god Nyame. Anansi can take the form of both a man and a spider, and he’s a spinner of stories...
Long stories…especially ones that illuminate his cleverness or the stupidity of others.
This… is Technical Boy👇🏽👇👇🏻👇🏼 (Bruce Langley). Based on his toys and chatter…
he is a god, too — the god of the internet. A bratty type… New School “Techno Wiz” threatened by the presence of the Old School Gods.
In technical boys reality…Language is a virus, religion… an operating system…. and prayers… are like spam to him..
This type of warped future… leads you to #BelieveInFEAR….
That’s what this guy wants you to do…
“Mr. World” played by (Crispin Glover), is the leader of the New Gods and Mr. Wednesday’s opposite number.
In the American Gods novel, Mr. World is the leader of team of “spooks,” a group of shady black hat spy types born from America’s infatuation with government coverups and conspiracies.
Mr. World now represents the concept of globalization, hence the name. Mr. World supposedly seeks unity, though he keeps the full extent of his plans to himself.

It’s not too late to GET INTO THIS !!!
Whether you’re in need of a refresher…( gotta pay close attention here folks… there’s a LOT going on!!!)
Or…. If you’re simply intrigued… Let’s go back to square one…
Ready ???? Ok!
Here’s the deal…. 👇🏼👇👇🏽👇🏻
The dramatic series on the STARZ network..is an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s…2001 novel about the Old Gods of the old traditions and the New Gods of the modern world coming into conflict in America.
Gaiman took inspiration from gods of real world myth when he created the Old Gods of American Gods. He also looked towards unique obsessions in American Culture… to come up with the “New Gods.”
Ex-convict Shadow Moon,
played by (Ricky Whittle) ,
exists in a world that he doesn’t really understand. In the midst of this… He’s dazed and confused by the recent, tragic death of his wife.
Little does he know his life is about to change after he meets a crafty, charismatic con man named “Mr. Wednesday,” portrayed by (Ian McShane)
And how does one get a name like Mr. Wednesday???
When Shadow… asked for this man’s name… This guy turns around… and asks what day it is — Wednesday, it seems. “Today’s my day,” he says. “Let’s go with that.”
Mythology plus etymology tells us that Wednesday… is actually Odin. A WAR GOD.
“Mr. Wednesday” offers Shadow a job as his bodyguard. As their journey begins, Shadow encounters a hidden America where magic is real and fear grows over the ascending power of New Gods like Technology and Media.
In a grand plan to combat the threat, “Mr. Wednesday” attempts to unite the Old Gods to defend their existence and rebuild the influence that they’ve lost, leaving Shadow struggling to accept this new world and his place in it…
Where Shadow is concerned… you’re lead
to #believeindestiny 🙌🏽
Back to the war god..
According to the old tales.. “Odin” gouged out one of his eyes in exchange for a drink from the Well of Wisdom;
Mr. Wednesday has a glass eye.
Ohhh yeahhhh!!! Add in lots of action, and some mind benders… and it’s ON!
“Mr. Wednesday” wants to unite the Old Gods in last glorious battle against the New Gods.
And so…There’s an epic battle between the OLD G’s ( Old Gods) & (New Gods)
They are an interesting bunch indeed… (A Leprechaun 🍀 included… Gold coins and all.)
(Pablo Schreiber) SAYS he’s a leprechaun, but he’s tall. Is he a god? Not sure…. but he has godlike powers. — some say the leprechauns came from godlike beings called the Tuatha De Danann, who were the last race of gods to live in Ireland before the Celts and the Gaels arrived.
All that being said… Just
