David Tennant and Michael Sheen to Return for Second Season of 'Good Omens'
It's finally official: Good Omens has been renewed for a second season.
David Tennant and Michael Sheen will reprise their roles as the demon Crowley and angel Aziraphale, BBC Studios and Amazon announced in a press release Tuesday.
Neil Gaiman will also return as an executive producer of the hit fantasy series based on his and Sir Terry Pratchett's 1990 novel of the same name. The show follows unlikely duo Aziraphale and Crowley as they team up to save the world from an impending apocalypse.
"It's thirty-one years since Good Omens was published, which means it's thirty-two years since Terry Pratchett and I lay in our respective beds in a Seattle hotel room at a World Fantasy Convention, and plotted the sequel," Gaiman said. "I got to use bits of the sequel in Good Omens – that's where our angels came from. 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."
Gaiman then added ever so teasingly: "There are so many questions people have asked about what happened next (and also, what happened before) to our favorite Angel and Demon. Here are the answers you've been hoping for. 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."
Good Omens debuted on Amazon in May 2019 to positive reviews, but it's taken more than two years for the new season to get a green light. Gaiman said last July that the probability of a renewal was "pretty good," something which has now come to pass. Bring on season two!
