As the third season of Starz’s American Gods continues production, Deadline has reported the series has added Lela Loren (Power) in a recurring role.
Loren will star as Marguerite Olsen, a resident of the town of Lakeside where Ricky Whittle’s Shadow Moon is laying low. “While not native to Lakeside, Marguerite Olsen has become part of the fabric of the town as a trusted reporter for the local paper, a committed single mother of two, and a no-nonsense property manager. She is understandably wary of the pain vulnerability brings, but when Shadow moves into her building, he begins to chip away at her defenses and uncover a side to Marguerite she thought she’d locked away for good.”
American Gods is based upon Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name that depicts a brewing war between gods of the ancient world against the new gods of the modern world.
Season three will follow “Shadow as he attempts to break away and assert himself as his own man, setting down roots in the idyllic snowy town of Lakeside, WI, where he’ll uncover a dark secret while exploring questions of his own divinity. Guided on this spiritual journey by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas, Shadow must decide exactly who he is: a god seeking veneration or a man in service of the ‘we’.”
The third season of the Ricky Whittle-headlined American Gods is scheduled to air on Starz in 2020.
