American Gods is finally back on our screens, with the fantasy series returning for a third season.

It’s been a year and a half since the show, based on Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel of the same name, was on our screens, and fans will be itching to re-immerse themselves in the fantasy world once again.

The cult series follows protagonist Shadow Moon in a world where gods mingle with humans in everyday life.

What can we expect? Gaiman recently wrote to fans in an open letter, saying that makers of the show wanted the third season to ‘focus on the characters and their journeys’, while also making sure to ‘root the show in the landscapes of America’.

But when is the series back on TV, and where can we watch it?

This is everything you need to know.
