Good omens Season 3 received an upbeat update from creator Neil Gaiman ahead of Season 2’s Prime Video debut on July 28th.
“Because there’s the hypothetical third season, there’s a story, and I didn’t feel like we could go straight into this from season one,” Gaiman said SFX Magazine.
“I knew what was at stake,” Gaiman continued. “I knew what the parameters were. I also knew I had David (Tennant) and Michael (Sheen). I had the angels from plot number one. I had demons from storyline number one. And anyone I wanted to bring back but didn’t have room for right now, I didn’t have to bring them back as themselves.”
What’s coming in Good Omens Season 2?
“Good Omens 2 explores storylines that go beyond the original source material to illuminate the incredible friendship between Aziraphale, a finicky angel and rare book dealer, and the fast-moving demon Crowley,” reads the synopsis. “After the apocalypse was foiled, the two have lived on Earth since the dawn of time, returning to a relaxed life among mortals in London’s Soho. Until the archangel Gabriel unexpectedly shows up at the door of Aziraphale’s bookstore, with no memory of who he is or how he got there.”
The synopsis previews the fact that Crowley and Aziraphale will once again depend on each other for support: “While Crowley is suspicious as to why the archangel has come to the bookstore, Aziraphale is eager to solve the mystery behind Gabriel’s condition . However, the Archangel’s hiding from Heaven and Hell quickly throws their life upside down in unforeseen ways. To solve this mystery and thwart heaven and hell in the process, the duo will need more than just a miracle; They have to rely on each other again.”
With Tennant and Sheen reprising their respective roles as Crowley and Aziraphale, the six-part second season of Good Omens also stars Jon Hamm, Doon Mackichan, Gloria Obianyo, Derek Jacobi, Liz Carr, Quelin Sepulveda, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith to see Niamh Walsh, Shelley Conn, Paul Adeyefa, Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, Maggie Service, Reece Shearsmith and Nina Sosanya.
The adaptation of the 1990 novel by Gaiman and Terry Pratchett will be produced by Gaiman, who will continue to serve as showrunner alongside director Douglas Mackinnon. Executive producers are Mackinnon, Rob Wilkins, John Finnemore and Josh Cole, with Finnemore co-writing season two with Gaiman.
