Description:  A war is brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and 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. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.

Season End Status: This show started well ratings-wise in its first season for a Starz entry and not surprisingly received an early renewal announcement. It also stirred some buzz on the social networks and was very received by critics and fans. The current plan is to cover the book over a three-season period, and it looks like the show should make that mark and possibly even continue beyond that point.
