Neil Gaiman is Up for More 'Good Omens': 'I Think the Probability Is Pretty Good'
Neil Gaiman's DC comic book series The Sandman is being made into an audiobook, with James McAvoy taking on the title role, also known as Lord Morpheus.
With The Sandman audiobook releasing on July 15, Gaiman has been doing the press rounds. In a recent interview with Digital Spy, he was asked about there being more Good Omens, which was adapted for TV in 2019.
Gaiman is keen on the idea, saying, "I think the probability is pretty good. It's not like anybody doesn't want to make more Good Omens. We just need to figure out how and when and all of the various ifs, and sort everything out."
He went on to address the obvious, "Plus, we're in COVID world right now, where nobody even knows how to shoot big drama. There are problems that none of us quite know how to solve."
On a lighter note, he elaborated on the joy of the project for himself and viewers, saying, "But we'd all love to do it, so it's really just a matter of seeing if we can actually make that happen in the world, if we can make the time happen, if we can work it with everybody's schedule. I know I'm not the only person who wants to see more Crowley and Aziraphale."
In the six-part series, the demon Crowley and angel Aziraphale are portrayed by Anglo favorites David Tennant and Michael Sheen. The two also teamed up for a 3-minute lockdown Good Omens reunion special, which you can take a peek at below:
Tennant and Sheen got on so well, they even created a five-part series called Staged, which they filmed during quarantine. The two star as actors who are furloughed and work to figure out what to do with their downtime.
Gaiman teases that he made this happen, saying, "I was so proud of (Staged). I was like, 'Ah, I brought you together!' I thought they were so funny in Staged."
Hmm, maybe he isn't teasing when taking the credit for creating this combo?
Either way, cheers to more Good Omens and these three reuniting at some point. If you find yourself now itching for more Gaiman, we just did a roundup of on-screen adaptations of his stories.
