June 4 (UPI) -- Dean Winters, Devery Jacobs and Kahyun Kim joined the ensemble for Season 2 of the Starz series American Gods, the network announced Monday.

They will play the characters of Mr. Town, Sam Black Crow and New Media, respectively.


The modern myth show is to return in 2019 with eight fresh episodes.

"A strong believer in progress, Mr. Town is tasked by Mr. World to find out what Shadow knows about Mr. Wednesday's plan. His brutal efficiency and technique just may get him the answers to his curious questions," the cable network said in a news release.

"Sam, a college student, is spiritually cynical for someone who claims to believe in so much. She lives life with fierce confidence and openness, selling the chainsaw art she carves by the roadside for extra money," the synopsis continued. "New Media is the goddess of global content -- and in this age, a cyberspace chameleon, who is also a master of manipulation."

Season 1 stars Crispin Glover, Ricky Whittle and Ian McShane will return in their roles of Mr. World, Shadow and Mr. Wednesday.


Whittle offered a warm welcome to his new castmates on Twitter.

"Massive welcome to our #newmedia @kahyunkim257 eagle eyes out there would've clocked her out with the godsquad already soooooo much fun & already part of the fam,excited for you to see the awesome work she's doing and season we have ahead #AmericanGods #season2," he tweeted.

Another post from the actor read: "Soooooo finally Shadow Moon meets Sam Crow welcome @kdeveryjacobs to #AmericanGods #season2 #believe."
