American Gods Season 3 Episode 5

American fantasy TV series American Gods didn’t air episode 5 of season 3 this week. Instead of 7th February, the episode will now release on 14 February 2021. Adapted from Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name, the series follows a former convict, Shadow Moon, who meets a strange man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. After his meeting, Shadow soon finds himself in the middle of a large-scale conflict between the Old Gods and the New Gods. Here, we will discuss why the fifth episode of the third season didn’t air on 7th February. Additionally, we will also look at the spoilers and what to expect from American Gods Season 3 Episode 5.

The third season features Shadow Moon’s life after moving to Lakeside, Wisconsin, under a false name to hide from the New Gods. It premiered on 10 January 2021. Season 3 of American Gods will conclude with its tenth episode on 21 March 2021. The show’s producers decided not to air the episode as the weekend’s Super Bowl LV, which would attract huge viewership. This year’s match between Kansa City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers was their first Super Bowl match. So, it’s not a surprise that the fans highly anticipated it. Now the episode will be available on the Starz app at approximately 7 P.M., according to the central standard time. Now, let’s check the recap of the fourth episode and the spoilers for the upcoming episode.
