Starz has announced that its fantasy series “American Gods” will return with its second season on March 10.

The series is based on the novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman. It chronicles the struggle between old Gods such as Love and Evil and new Gods like Technology.

The first season featured the most explicit gay sex scene aired on television between Salim (Omid Abtahi) and Middle Eastern god Jinn (Mousa Kraish).

Despite receiving critical acclaim upon its debut in 2017, the show struggled to continue production when its showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green exited the show over “budget and creative direction.” Stars Gillian Anderson and Kristin Chenoweth departed the show soon after. Series producer Jesse Alexander and Gaiman took over as showrunners but the appointment was shortlived as Alexander also left the show.

Watch the season two trailer below.
