After keeping mum for months, author Neil Gaiman and Good Omens director Douglas Mackinnon have finally unveiled a first look of what’s to come for the second season. The well-received Amazon Prime Video series will be hitting the streamer on 28 July, with a new trailer promising more heavenly chaos from main duo Crowley (David Tennant) and Aziraphale (Michael Sheen).
Following the events of the first season, the demon-and-angel pair have been enjoying their time on Earth together, free from the burden of trying to avoid the apocalypse. But Murphy’s Law knows no mercy, and they soon learn of the disappearance of the archangel Gabriel (Jon Hamm), who ends up hiding in Aziraphale’s book shop with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Crowley and Aziraphale must work together to find out what’s happening and hide their actions from their superiors, while shooting long, lingering looks at each other. Go boys!
Originally based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s bestselling novel, Good Omens Season 2 will explore “storylines that go beyond the original source material” and continue fleshing out the pair’s unique friendship. Doon Mackichan and Gloria Obianyo are set to reprise their roles as archangels Michael and Uriel, joining an ensemble cast that includes Miranda Richardson (who plays demon Shax), Maggie Service (Maggie), Nina Sosanya (Nina), Liz Carr (Saraqael), Quelin Sepulveda (Muriel), and Shelley Conn (Beelzebub).
Season 2 of Good Omens sees Gaiman returning as executive producer and co-showrunner, with all six episodes directed by Mackinnon, who also serves as executive producer. The series will start streaming on 28 July with “love stories” and “a lot more Heaven, a lot more Hell” in tow.
