Just the fact that, despite some speedbumps, a second season is still happening and is now in production is great news.

The carousel is found in tourist attraction known as 'The House on the Rock' in Wisconsin, a weird real-life location that was been briefly referenced at the end of season one. Oh, just hanging out with gods and mortals at the House on the Rock.

Season 2 of "American Gods" will premiere sometime in 2019 on Starz.

The trailer also shows that even though Gillian Anderson has departed the series, Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Yetide Badaki, Orlando Jones, Mousa Kraish, and Omid Abtahi will all be back for the new season.

This isn't the only series based on Gaiman's work being worked on, with Prime Original series Good Omens - based on the popular novel from Gaiman and Terry Pratchett - also set to launch on Prime Video around the world at some point in 2019. The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society's modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.

Produced by FremantleMedia North America, American Gods is EP'd by Gaiman, Alexander, McShane, FMNA's Stefanie Berk, Craig Cegielski and Scott Hornbacher.

The season one focused on Shadow Moon, who meets a unusual man named Mr. Wednesday after being released from prison, and soon becomes embroiled in a large-scale conflict between the Old Gods and the New Gods, who grow stronger each day. In February, however, the network finally named Jesse Alexander as the new showrunner, and he's the one calling the shots now that filming has finally gotten underway on Season 2. Senior Vice President of Original Programming Marta Fernandez and Manager of Original Programming Kathleen Clifford are the Starz executives in charge of "American Gods".
