Nine TV shows to watch in January

American Gods          

The Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 fantasy book of the same name returns for a third series, continuing the story of a war building between the Old Gods of mythology and the New Gods of technology. As the story picks up, ex-con Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) has moved to the idyllic Wisconsin town of Lakeside to forge his own path, guided by the gods of his black ancestors – but crafty Mr Wednesday (Ian McShane) is determined to bring him back into the fold.

Shadow has assumed a new identity in an attempt to hide from the New Gods. However, he’ll soon discover that as the son of Odin, you don’t get to simply reject being a god, only what kind of god you’re going to be. Season three will also see Dominique Jackson, Danny Trejo and Crispin Glover appear as different versions of World, the leader of the new gods. Watch the trailer here. Premieres 10 January on Starz US and 11 January on Amazon Prime Video.
