Season 2 of “Good Omens” was never intended to be a continuation of the series. Neil Gaiman, the show’s writer and showrunner, as well as co-author of the novel from which it is adapted with the late Terry Pratchett, was initially quite clear on this point in his initial statement.
“The wonderful thing about ‘Good Omens’ is that it has three distinct parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. In other words, the first season of “Good Omens” is called “Good Omens.” It’s absolutely fantastic. It comes to an end. We have six more episodes to go before we’re finished “According to the Austin American-Statesman, he spoke to an audience at South by Southwest in 2019.
Season 2 of the hit series, which follows the unlikely pairing of angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and demonic demon Crowley (David Tennant) as they work together to find the Antichrist and thwart plans for Armageddon, may have received some — or at the very least positive indications — about the possibility of a second season.
It was reported in 2019 (via Deadline) that Amazon’s Vernon Sanders said, “It’s in Neil’s hands right now, but we’d love to do it.” “It’s in Neil’s hands right now,” Sanders said.
Recent reports indicate that Gaiman is beginning to consider it as a viable option. As Gaiman explained to Radio Times in 2020, “Right now, the challenges of creating more Good Omens are challenges of time and of the world, rather than challenges of willingness.” “I’d love to write more Good Omens stories in the future. I’d like to see Crowley and Aziraphale working together on something.”
But what kind of stuff are we talking about?
And when is this going to happen?
Good Omens Season 2 Release Date
Scotland has begun filming, which means the film will be released in 2022, according to our current projections.
Neil Gaiman has unexpectedly returned to the show as executive producer and co-showrunner, and Douglas Mackinnon has been re-hired as the show’s director after a successful first season.
We had to demonstrate that we were capable of transporting them both to Scotland. When the zoom call from Los Angeles came in, there were a few puzzled looks. After that, they went away and tried to figure out where Scotland was, but they failed “According to Mackinnon, speaking to Deadline. “We have the cream of the crop when it comes to locally sourced talent. The word ‘local’ makes it sound a little self-conscious. I’m glad that we’re finally bringing these shows to the city with Neil – it feels like everyone is ready to put them on, and there’s no sense of embarrassment.”
As part of the celebration of the start of filming, Amazon released a couple of new images from the set, which is extremely exciting. Gaiman, on the other hand, is overjoyed to be back on set (via CBR).
“I am overjoyed to be back here on the streets of Soho, where I can witness, on a daily basis, the magnificent performances of Michael Sheen and David Tennant,” the showrunner expressed his delight. “Even though I long for the days when I could bask in Terry Pratchett’s brilliance, it sometimes feels like we’re all still trapped inside his head.
This season’s story shenanigans were co-written with me by the brilliant John Finnemore, and it has been an absolute pleasure working with the director and co-showrunner Douglas Mackinnon as he steers the ship, along with our incredible crew, who have returned to do it all over again.”
“Having a company of players reuniting for this second season of Good Omens is like bringing a family back together, only this time in Scotland,” Mackinnon said. “It’s like bringing a family back together, only this time in Scotland.” “Not only has the cast been reunited, but so has a large portion of the Good Omens Season One crew. Our team is being strengthened by the addition of new talent on both sides of the camera, and I am looking forward to being at the helm for six more episodes of what we hope will be heavenly entertainment,” says the executive producer.
In other words, Amazon Prime subscribers will have another six episodes to look forward to in the near future, and it appears that the creative team is equally ecstatic about the prospect as we are.
Good Omens season 2 cast
Tennant and Sheen have clearly returned to their roles as the show’s leading characters.
Paul Adeyefa, Michael McKean, Gloria Obianyo, Miranda Richardson, Maggie Service, Reece Shearsmith, and Nina Sosanya are among those who have returned to the show. Although the Good Omens team has confirmed that some of the returning actors will be playing new characters, it is still unclear which ones. We’ll let you know as soon as we have more information on this strange revelation.
Good Omens Season 2 Plot
In a statement, Gaiman said, “It’s been 31 years since Good Omens was published, which means it’s been 32 years since Terry Pratchett and I laid in our respective beds in a Seattle hotel room at a World Fantasy Convention and plotted the sequel.” “Terry Pratchett and I laid in our respective beds in a Seattle hotel room at a World Fantasy Convention,” Gaiman said (via TV Line).
“I was able to incorporate elements of the sequel into Good Omens because that is where our angels came from. Terry is no longer present, but when he was, we discussed what we wanted to do with Good Omens and where the story should go from there.”
He went on to say: “There has been a slew of questions about what happened next (and also what happened before) to our favorite Angel and Demon, and the answers have been plentiful. Here are the answers you’ve been looking forward to finding out. We’re back in Soho, and we’re traveling through time and space to solve a mystery that begins with an angel wandering the streets of Soho with no recollection of where she came from.”
“It’s probably less good for the universe because it almost certainly means that there will be some new existential threat to its existence to deal with, but, you know – swings and roundabouts,” Tennant continued.
In an interview with RadioTimes.com, Gaiman stated that the sequel he was working on with Pratchett would delve into “where the angels actually came from,” and based on what he said in the above statement, it appears that’s exactly what we’ll be getting.
