The wait is over and fans of the television adaptation of Neil Gaiman's 2011 novel American Gods will finally get to see new episodes of the fantasy drama and we have all the details on how you can watch the show on TV or online.

American Gods tells the story of inmate Shadow Moon who is released early from prison to attend his wife's funeral. However, his trip home is delayed and he ends up meeting the infamous Mr. Wednesday who offers him a job. Shadow Moon then takes on the role of being Wednesday's driver, assistant and bodyguard.

Soon after, Shadow finds himself in a hidden world where magic is real and the Old Gods including Odin, Anubis and others find themselves losing influence to the New Gods who include technology and media. Mr. Wednesday then tries to rally the Old Gods to defend their existence and rebuild the influence they have lost in the modern world.

Without going too far into spoilers, season 3 sees Shadow turn away from his destiny in the town of Lakeside, Wisconsin where he tries to make his own patch. However, the town isn't quite what it seems and Shadow realizes that you can't simply reject being a god. Instead, he'll have to decide what kind of god he wants to be.

Whether you're a big fan of Neil Gaiman's novel by the same name or just want to see Ian McShane reprise his role as Mr. Wednesday, we'll show you exactly how to watch season 3 of American Gods online from anywhere in the world.

American Gods - When and where?
