It seems as though Starz’s newest series, American Gods, is already being renewed for a second season ahead of its season one premiere later this month. According to Omega Underground, filming for the second season is set to begin this September and end in May of 2018 in Canada.

You can see the listing below.

Earlier this week, the opening title sequence for the series was released online. You can watch it here.

American Gods posits a different kind of war brewing—one between Old Gods and New. The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the New Gods. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.

The series also stars Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Yetide Badaki, Bruce Langley, Jonathan Tucker, Crispin Glover, Cloris Leachman, Peter Stormare, Chris Obi, Mousa Kraish, Gillian Anderson, Omid Abtahi, Orlando Jones, Demore Barnes, Dane Cook, Kristin Chenoweth, Corbin Bernsen, Jeremy Davies and Beth Grant.

The first season of American Gods premieres on Starz on April 30 at 9/8c.

10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV

Independent Comics
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.

Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles.  Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems  from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet.  Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing.   Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.

Here’s a list of 10 more comics ripe for the silver screen. Click Next to start!
