Neil Gaiman is widely revered as one of the most prominent and talented writers in the world. Not only is he a standout in the comic book community for his work onThe Sandman, but the multi-talented author is also known for his books outside of the medium.
Gaiman's work is often adapted for the screen to deliver the layered stories in a medium that appeals to wider audiences. His projects that have received television series adaptations are The Sandman, Lucifer, Good Omens, and American Gods.
While many of the shows stemming from Gaiman's writing are popular, American Gods particularly struck a chord with audiences as it aired on Starz, which allowed it to fit in the realm of adult entertainment. Now that the series has ended, Lionsgate is releasing a complete collection of all three seasons along with a tonne of additional features.
The official press release from Lionsgate states the following product information about the release of American Gods: The Complete Series:

The story across three seasons centers around ex-convict Shadow Moon, bodyguard for the mysterious Mr. Wednesday, an Old God trying to rebuild the power and influence the Old Gods once had. As events unfold and Shadow struggles with his identity and place in the world, AMERICAN GODS examines humanity’s conflicted relationship with faith and the unknown.
American Gods: The Complete Series gets a DVD release on March 1st.
