Starz has gone dark and bloody for its new AMERICAN GODS preview.

Ricky Whittle stars as Shadow Moon, an ex-con who is feeling adrift after the death of his wife. He accepts a position as bodyguard and traveling partner for conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But as Shadow soon comes to realize, Mr. Wednesday isn’t just a man — he’s a very powerful old deity and he’s on a cross-country mission to build himself an army and reclaim his lost glory.

AMERICAN GODS is a battle between old Gods and New Gods. The Old Gods are being pushed aside as their believers die off or turn to New Gods, who offer people money, technology and celebrity.

AMERICAN GODS premieres on Sunday, April 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
