If the belated second season of American Gods feels more faithful to the book, that’s because production delays led to co-executive producer Neil Gaiman exerting more control over the TV adaptation of his best-selling novel.

This R-rated fantasy series reaches a whole new level of weirdness as the battle between the Old Gods and the New gains momentum. Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) rallies a war council at the House on the Rock, where Shadow (Ricky Whittle) and the gods ride a psychedelic carousel into another dimension, while Mr. World (Crispin Glover) plots revenge following the attack on Easter’s party. Fans will have to wait for season three, though, for the much anticipated Lakeside story arc.
