Faith Will Be Restored When "American Gods" Season One Descends from Above on Digital HD October 6 and on Blu-ray™ and DVD October 17 from Lionsgate

SANTA MONICA, CA (August 17, 2017) – The critically acclaimed Starz fantasy series "American Gods" Season One, produced by FremantleMedia North America, arrives on Digital HD October 6 and Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD October 17 from Lionsgate. From writer-producers Bryan Fuller ("Hannibal") and Michael Green ("Heroes") and based on Neil Gaiman's international best-selling novel, "American Gods" Season One is a visual feast focusing on an ex-convict named Shadow Moon, and his sudden introduction into a power struggle between the Old and New Gods. "American Gods" Season One stars Ricky Whittle ("The 100"), Ian McShane (John Wick: Chapter 2, "Game of Thrones"), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events), Pablo Schreiber (13 Hours, "Orange Is the New Black"), Peter Stormare (John Wick: Chapter 2, Fargo), and pop culture icon Gillian Anderson ("The X-Files," "Hannibal").

When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday's bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It's a hidden world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they've lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.

The home entertainment release of "American Gods" Season One features over two hours of exclusive extras including "The Road to 'American Gods'" documentary, six behind-the-scenes featurettes, audio commentary on the premiere and season finale episodes, God Squad Video Commentary, and an opportunity to explore the Crocodile Bar in 360 degrees. "American Gods" Season One will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $34.98, respectively.
