What we know about the American Gods Season 3 premiere date, cast, and more

It’s not long now until American Gods Season 3 premieres. You can watch it this weekend in the U.S., although those internationally are waiting until Monday.

It’s okay; this season is more than worth the wait!

And it has certainly been a wait. The season has been in the works since 2019 (with the writing starting a year ago!) and has been through a few showrunner changes since then. It’s been shrouded in controversy throughout that time, too. But fans of the Neil Gaiman novel will want to see how it all plays out, especially since this season is set to return more faithful to the books.

So, let’s delve into what we know about American Gods Season 3, including where and when to watch.

American Gods Season 3 premiere date

The official premiere date is Sunday, Jan. 10. New episodes will be available to stream at 8/7c on the channel.

If you have the STARZ App, which you will do when you get it through Amazon Channels, you’ll be able to watch from midnight. Delve right into the next chapter in Shadow Moon’s story.

The episodes are released weekly on Sundays, which is standard for STARZ.
