Dean Winters Among New Additions to American Gods Cast


Dean Winters (Divorce, John Wick), Devery Jacobs (Cardinal, The Order) and Kahyun Kim (Shameless, Freaky Friday) have been cast in the sophomore season of American Gods.

Season two of the eight-episode drama series returns to Starz in 2019. Winters has been cast in a guest role as Mr. Town. A strong believer in progress, Mr. Town is tasked by Mr. World (Crispin Glover) to find out what Shadow (Ricky Whittle) knows about Mr. Wednesday’s (Ian McShane) plan.

Jacobs takes on a recurring guest star role as Sam Black Crow. Sam, a college student, is spiritually cynical for someone who claims to believe in so much. She lives life with fierce confidence and openness, selling the chainsaw art she carves by the roadside for extra money.

Kim will be in the recurring role of New Media. New Media is the goddess of global content—and in this age, a cyberspace chameleon, who is also a master of manipulation.

American Gods is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Jesse Alexander (Hannibal, Heroes) will serve as showrunner and executive producer this season.
