“GOOD NEWS! There will be MORE GOOD OMENS!”
The TV show adaptation of Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett’s novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch is back for a brand new season!
Originally supposed to be a limited series, the sheer popularity of the show has prompted Amazon Prime to order six more episodes for a second season of the fantasy drama series.
Fans can anticipate the return of the angel Aziraphale, played by Michael Sheen, and the demon Crowley, portrayed by David Tennant.
Neil Gaiman, along with Douglas Mackinnon, will once again be the showrunners for the brand new season. Gaiman is also set to co-write the sequel with John Finnemore. Reports state that they will start filming in Scotland later this year.
In a Facebook post, Gaiman shares his excitement for the upcoming season.
“It's been thirty-one years since Good Omens was published, which means it's thirty-two 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 wrote in his blog post regarding the Good Omens sequel.
As for the plot, all Neil Gaiman could reveal is that Good Omens will return to Soho, “and all through and space, solving a mystery which starts with one of the angels wandering through a Soho street market with no memory of who they might be, on their way to Aziraphale's bookshop.”
