Amazon Prime Video has greenlighted ‘Good Omens’ for a new season. The actors Michael Sheen and David Tennant will reprise their roles as Aziraphale and Crowley.
The show is based on an International Best-Selling Novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. It will reportedly go beyond the book material as the novel never had a sequel.
While talking about the second season, Gaimen said:
“Terry’s not here any longer, but when he was, we had talked about what we wanted to do with Good Omens, and where the story went next. And now, thanks to BBC Studios and Amazon, I get to take it there.”
The next season is said to take place after a year after the apocalyptic events of the first season. The show will begin with a wandering Angel in SOHO with no memory.
“We are back in Soho, and all through time and space, solving a mystery, which starts with an angel wandering through Soho, with no memory,” Gaiman said while discussing the renewal.
Gaiman will continue as the executive producer and the co-showrunner, alongside executive producer Douglas Mackinnon, who will also return to direct in the show.
Sheen and Tennant had mixed reactions to the news. Sheen revealed to be against the renewal while Tennant was excited to reprise his role as Demon Crawley and work with Sheen again.
The second season of Good Omens is produced by Amazon Studios, BBC Studios Productions, The Blank Corporation, and Narrativia. The premiere date for the new season is yet to be announced.
