Where to watch American Gods online in Australia

Matt Sayer 4 June 2017 NEWS


Neil Gaiman's lore-heavy road trip story has finally arrived on the small screen. Here's where to catch it in Australia.

It's not every day a god offers you a job. If American Gods is anything to go by, that's probably a good thing. How would you even go about turning down a job offer from on high? After all, you can't exactly run and hide from the wrath of an almighty being.

It's questions like this that Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) finds himself asking just days after his release from prison. Distraught and despondent in the wake of his wife's death, Shadow accepts a vague job offer from the mysterious Wednesday (Ian McShane), a purported conman who seems to know more about Shadow's life than Shadow does himself. Before he knows what he's gotten into, Shadow finds himself trekking his way across America with a chain of Old Gods in tow, preparing for war against the New Gods of Celebrity and Technology. If Shadow can't find a way to stop them, there won't be much of a world left for any god to rule over.

Based on Neil Gaiman's award-winning novel of the same name, American Gods is under the executive production of Gaiman himself and features a new character written exclusively for the show. Airing on Starz in America, the first season will initially be exclusive to Amazon Prime Video here in Australia, making it one of the key reasons to sign up to the streaming platform.
