American Gods star Ricky Whittle has teased the show's upcoming season 3 finale, admitting it will make fans "angry".

The Starz series is due to wrap up its third outing this weekend, and while he didn't give anything specific away, the Shadow Moon actor exclusively told Digital Spy that the concluding episode will be "nuts".

"For me, it really does culminate in the most epic season finale," he said. "It's just going to leave fans wanting more because we want more. When I read the season finale, I just texted Chic [showrunner, Charles H 'Chic' Eglee] and the writers, 'Wow.' It blew my mind.

"I can't spoil it," Whittle added. "I don't want to spoil it. It's nuts. But I think fans will be angry because it's so great, and it's that cliché of: it's just going to leave them wanting more, because it's such an upsetting way to end a story, when you can't turn that page."

"You get to the end of the book, and you're like, 'Oh, come on!' It's Empire Strikes Back when it's like, 'You can't…! When is Return of the Jedi? When is it?'"

He further explained: "It's that moment. It's truly written so well. It's a true return to form, and I'm so proud of this season. I feel that this is the strongest season yet."
