YES. YES. YES.
Dominique Jackson has joined the cast of Amazon Prime’s original fantasy series American Gods.
The actress will be a recurring cast member for the show’s upcoming third season, which is due to premiere in 2020. Following the news, she wrote on Twitter: “Hardworking does pay off! Thank you American Gods.”
Marilyn Manson, Blythe Danner, Herizen Guardiola, Ashley Reyes and Eric Johnson have also been announced as guest stars.
Jackson will reportedly portray Ms. World, another incarnation of Crispin Glover’s character Mr. World. Season 3 will follow Ricky Whittle’s character Shadow as he attempts to break free from the restraints of Mr Wednesday – played by Ian McShane.
The highly-anticipated season will also see the return of main cast members such as Emily Browning, Bruce Langley, Yetide Badaki, Pablo Schreiber, Orlando Jones, Mousa Krais, Omid Abtahi and Demore Barnes.
Jackson is best known for her legendary role as Elektra Wintour on Ryan Murphy’s LGBTQ drama, Pose, which features the largest amount of trans actors in regular roles of any scripted TV series in history.
Since the show premiered last year, it’s received universal praise from fans and critics. Last month, Billy Porter made history once more when he became the first openly gay black man to win Lead Actor in a Drama Series.
