Amazon Studios has renewed its supernatural comedy series ‘Good Omens’ for a second season with Michael Sheen and David Tennant returning as Aziraphale and Crowley respectively. The former is an angel and the latter a demon who are working together to amidst the threat of Armageddon.
“The second season of the six-part humorous fantasy drama will begin filming later this year in Scotland and will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories around the world at a later date,” Amazon said in a press release. “The new season will explore storylines that go beyond the original source material to illuminate the uncanny friendship between Aziraphale, a fussy angel and rare book dealer, and the fast-living demon Crowley. Having been on Earth since The Beginning and with the Apocalypse thwarted, Aziraphale and Crowley are getting back to easy living amongst mortals in London’s Soho when an unexpected messenger presents a surprising mystery.”
The show is based on the 1990 fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. The first season also featured six episodes, winning several awards including “Favourite On-Demand Show” at the TV Times Award.
Amazon confirms that “Neil Gaiman continues as executive producer and will co-showrun along with executive producer Douglas Mackinnon, who will also return to direct. Rob Wilkins, John Finnemore and BBC Studios Productions’ Head of Comedy Josh Cole will also executive produce, with Finnemore serving as co-writer alongside Gaiman.”
Sheen and Tennant also shared their thoughts on the renewal.
“Personally I’m against it, but the world isn’t going to just save itself, is it,” joked Sheen. “If David and I can manage to not fall out too badly this time it may even have a chance of getting finished.”
“The return of Good Omens is great news for me, personally,” Tennant added. “As I get to work with Michael again, and I get to say Neil’s wonderful words once more. It’s probably less good for the universe as it almost certainly means there will be some fresh existential threat to its existence to deal with, but, you know – swings and roundabouts…”
