‘Good Omens’ To Return On Amazon
by Erik Amaya
It turns out a good thing can happen again.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has commissioned a second season of Good Omens. The first six-part season stared Michael Sheen and David Tennant as an angel and a demon, respectively, uninterested in either the war between their people or the impending apocalypse. It was, of course, based on the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. The latter served as the program’s executive producer and showrunner — a job he always likened as a favor to the late Pratchett. But considering how well-received the show was, how could you not come back to it?
Also, there is that sequel Pratchett and Gaiman never had the chance to author together. “It’s 32 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 in a statement. “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.” The new season will see Aziraphale (Sheen) and Crowley (Tennant) confronting a “surprising mystery” after an angel with no memory of their own existence upends the pairs Soho-based lives.
Joining Gaiman on the production side of things are John Finnemore as co-writer and Douglas Mackinnon as co-showrunner and series director. Rob Wilkins and Josh Cole are also onboard as executive producers. The six-part second season will shoot in Scotland later this year, suggesting it will be available on Amazon sometime next year.
