Adapted from Neil Gaiman’s best-selling novel. A second bite of the lavish war between old gods and new gods in this eagerly anticipated, provocative and boundary-busting drama. This is the story of the traditional gods of mythological roots, steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods that reflect modern society’s obsession with money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. We were forged in god’s image, but the gods are also made in ours – and in Series 2 the battle moves inexorably toward crisis point as the destinies of gods and men collide. While Mr. World plots revenge for the attack against him in Series 1, Shadow joins Wednesday’s attempt to convince the old gods of the case for full-out war, with Laura and Mad Sweeney in tow. A council at the House on the Rock explodes into chaos, sending deities both old and new on quests across America that will converge on Cairo, Illinois, forcing Shadow to carve out a place as a believer in this strange new world of living gods – a dark world where change demands commitment, and faith requires terrible sacrifice.
