You can check it out right here to get ready for the show's April 30th premiere!

Starz has released a new trailer for the first season of American Gods.

The good news? The seemingly never-ending wait for American Gods to land on our TV screens is almost over. It's a blend of fantasy, mythology and Americana that focuses on the impending battle between the dying Old Gods and New Gods assembled by conman, Mr. Wednesday.

The lead character here is Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), a recently released convict who returns home to bury his wife and meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), a traveling con man in need of some muscle. The series stars Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Bruce Langley, Pablo Schreiber and Yetide Badaki. But Mr. Wednesday hides his true identity as a powerful former deity, as the duo journey cross-country to assemble his New God army.

Gillian Anderson plays Media, Kristin Chenoweth is Easter, Jonathan Tucker is Low Key Lyesmith, Cloris Leachman is Zorya Vechernyaya, Peter Stormare plays Czernobog, Chris Obi is Anubis, Demore Barnes is Mr. Ibis, Corbin Bernsen is Vulcan, and Mousa Kraish is The Jinn. American Gods won both the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award for best novel. Bryan Fuller ("Hannibal", "Pushing Daisies", "Heroes") and Michael Green ("The River", "Kings", "Heroes") are writers and showrunners.

Starz retains all network pay TV and SVOD rights, as well as certain DVD distribution rights in the U.S. and Canada, to the project. FremantleMedia is distributing the series worldwide.

We see, in other words, a whole lot of weird shit - which is exactly what we might've expected from the dark, even eerie source material of Gaiman's American Gods.
