The trailer of American Gods season 2, based on Neil Gaiman's book of the same name, was recently released and it hints at a war between the Old Gods and New.

"When people first came to America they brought us with them," says Mr Wednesday's voice (Ian McShane) as the trailer shows him, Mr Nancy (Orlando Jones) and other traditional Gods of mythological roots. "Gradually, they abandoned us. Old, forgotten Gods. Now there are new Gods growing in America, and they want to destroy us," he says.
