Released from prison, Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) takes a job as bodyguard to the mysterious Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). When his new employer is revealed to be one of the Old Gods--ancient deities whose power and influence are dwindling--Moon becomes caught up in their struggle with the New Gods, who are based on modern concepts such as technology, the media, and globalization. In Season 2, the battle moves towards crisis point. While Mr. World plots revenge, Shadow throws in his lot with Wednesday's attempt to convince the Old Gods of the case for full-out war, with Laura and Mad Sweeney in tow.
