Brian’s powerful main title theme features vocals from Shirley Manson of Garbage, and has collaborated with Debbie Harry on another track to be released later in the season. Based on Neil Gaiman’s award-winning fantasy novel and created by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, American Gods features a spectacular cast including Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Gillian Anderson, Peter Stormare, Pablo Schreiber, boasts Emily Browning.
The A.V. Club praises the season premiere: “If future episodes continue with this swaggering confidence, lush sensuality, and clear narrative strokes, American Gods will be as audacious and intriguing as the confusing, daring, misplaced gods themselves.”
Screen Rant writes “…if ever there was a show demanding sumptuous visuals and elaborate set pieces to underline the enormity of what’s about to unfold, it’s American Gods… And as such, the stage is set for American Gods to deliver a big, bold, and beautiful new series.”
