Where is American Gods filmed?

Based on the 2001 bestseller novel by Neil Gaiman, American Gods tells the quest of Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday to bring the Old Gods (from classical mythology) together, and get ready for the war against the New Gods, invented by man. The gods are a bit like Marvel superheros, but with real life problems, like most of people.

Leading the cast are Ricky Whittle (The 100) as Shadow, Ian McShane (John Wick: Chapter 2, Pirates of the Caribbean) as Wednesday, and Emily Browning (A Series of Unfortunate Events) as Laura Moon.

The two main characters will travel across the country in a road trip, so potentially interesting filming locations are expected. American Gods was filmed basically in Toronto, Oklahoma and Wisconsin:
