Good Omens Season 2, the Amazon series based on the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett novel, is on the way – here’s everything we know about the new season so far, including any release date information, cast, plot & more.

Good Omens was a huge hit when it launched on Amazon in May 2019, and the delightful fantasy series will finally return to our screens in 2023. The first season, which directly adapted the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett novel of the same name, told the story of the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and the demon Crowley (David Tennant).

The two beings have lived on Earth for millennia and grown fond of their mortal home, so despite working for the opposing Heaven and Hell, they decide to team up in order to prevent Armageddon from being brought on by the antichrist.

While the first season did adapt the full novel and was initially billed as a limited series, season 2 of Good Omens is well and truly on the way, and here’s everything we know about it so far.

Not a lot has been revealed about the plot of the upcoming Good Omens season however, during an official statement regarding the show’s renewal, Neil Gaiman (who has returned to the helm as showrunner) gave a few brief insights into what fans can look forward to.

In the statement, the author reflected on when he and Terry Pratchett originally started to plot a potential sequel to the novel, mentioning: “I got to use bits of the sequel in Good Omens, that’s where our angels come from. 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.”

When directly mentioning Season 2, Gaiman said: “We are back in Soho, and all through time and space, solving a mystery, which starts with an angel wandering through Soho, with no memory.”

From the above, we can assume that Heaven and Hell, particularly the angels, will again play a pivotal role in the upcoming Season, and perhaps that we’ll even get glimpses of an origin story for Aziraphale and Crowley.

In a Twitter video shared by Amazon Studios last year, Gaiman described the season as “quiet and gentle, and romantic.” This has led to fan speculation that a romance may occur between the show’s leading angel and demon.
