The Carousel Room is coming.
American Gods Season 2 is coming in 2019 and a new video gives fans a first look at the House on the Rock.
Production on the eight-episode second season has started and the new season will finally feature the aforementioned quintessential location in Neil Gaiman’s novel. The House on the Rock serves as a meeting place for a conference between the gods.
In Season 1, Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) and Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) were searching for the remaining Old Gods across America. It seems Season 2 will see Wednesday gather the Old Gods to discuss their plan to stop the New Gods. The meeting at the Carousel Room (pictured below) is regarded as one of the more standout moments from the book.
“The first season was all about getting to the House on the Rock,” Gaiman said. “It’s amazing to see everyone back, and to be entering the next stage of the story with the best bunch of actors around, along with some inspired filmmakers.”
Season 2 will have a new showrunner in Jesse Alexander, with Gaiman also taking a more central role on the series. Gillian Anderson will also be replaced as New Media following her departure from the show.
