‘American Gods’ Adds Marilyn Manson for Season 3

The Wrap Tuesday, 17 September 2019
‘American Gods’ Adds Marilyn Manson for Season 3Marilyn Manson is joining the third season of Starz’s “American Gods,” the network confirmed.

Manson will play Johan Wengren, the lead singer of Blood Death, a Viking death metal band that is a source of power for Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednesday (also known as the Old God Odin). The character is not from Neil Gaiman book of the same name that the series is based on.

Charles “Chic” Eglee is spearheading the third season of the Gaiman-based drama, the show’s third different showrunner in as many seasons.

“American Gods” stars McShane, Ricky Whittle, Orlando Jones, Emily Browning, Pablo Schrieber, Kahyun Kim and Dean Winters.

Michael Green and Bryan Fuller, who originally adapted Gaiman’s 2001 novel for Starz, left the series after the first season, with Jesse Alexander taking their place. But then last fall, it was reported that Alexander was no longer working on the show. At the time, Starz and the show’s studio Fremantle declined to comment on Alexander’s status.

During a conversation about the production troubles in February, Gaiman told TheWrap that Alexander was brought in simply to be a bridge to make sure the season was finished. The series was renewed for a third season in March.

Deadline first reported on Manson’s casting.
