American Gods has added three new cast members for key roles in the upcoming second season. The Starz dark fantasy series has cast Dean Winters (John Wick), Devery Jacobs (Mohawk Girls) and Kahyun Kim (Shameless) in the roles of Mr. Town, Sam Black Crow and New Media, respectively. Kim’s New Media is taking over for the role of Media played by Gillian Anderson in the first season. Anderson left the show following the departure of original showrunners Brian Fuller and Michael Green.

The second series will see Mr. World (Crispin Glover) task Mr. Town with tracking down Shadow (Ricky Whittle) and finding out what he knows about Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane)’s plan. Town’s methods are brutally efficient and may help him get to the root of his and World’s curious questions.

Jacobs will portray Sam Black Crow, a college student that is spiritually cynical for someone, despite claiming to believe in so much. She lives life with fierce confidence and openness, selling the chainsaw art she carves by the roadside for extra money.

Kim’s New Media is the goddess of global content — and in this age, a cyberspace chameleon, who is also a master of manipulation. The new season premieres next year on Starz.
