Good Omens first released in 2019 to massive success as fans loved the Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman adaptation. Amazon Prime has finally announced the show will be getting a second season, bringing the angels and demons back for another world-ending adventure. Express.co.uk has all the details on the upcoming sequel season.

When is Good Omens season two release date?

Once again based on Terry Pratchett’s and Neil Gaiman best-selling novel, Good Omens will return for another adventure.

The new season will be broken up into six parts and will begin filming later in 2021 in Scotland.

A release date is currently unconfirmed, however, with filming taking place late-2021, fans should expect the series to drop mid-2022 at the earliest.

The new season will go to new and unexplored places and it ventures beyond the original source material to illuminate the uncanny friendship between Aziraphale (played by Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant).

The plot remains largely under wraps, however, Amazon Prime has given fans a teaser for what to expect this time around.

Following the events of season one, the pair have thwarted the end of the world and are now enjoying the easy life.

Living amongst mortals in London’s Soho, the duo are enjoying their life when suddenly an unexpected letter presents a surprising mystery.

Gaiman is back as executive producer on the season and will run the show alongside Douglas Mackinnon who is back in the director’s chair.

Gaiman shared his excitement over the sequel season, releasing a statement that explains the origins of the continuation.

The author wrote: “It’s 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.

“I got to use bits of the sequel in Good Omens — that’s where our angels came 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.

“And now, thanks to BBC Studios and Amazon, I get to take it there.”

Is there a trailer for Good Omens season 2?

Currently, there isn’t a trailer for the new season, however, Amazon has released a poster that shows Aziraphale and Crowley walking together.

The pair are in the middle of a busy street with the Good Omens 2 title above them.

A trailer should be expected to drop in early 2022 once filming is complete and post-production has begun. 

Throughout 2021 more information and details of season two will be revealed and 2022 will bring fans a trailer. 

There is the possibility Amazon could release a teaser trailer sooner but fans will have to wait and see.

Who is in the cast of Good Omens season two?

David Tennant and Michael Sheen are back once again as the fast-living demon Crowley and fussy rare book dealer Aziraphale.

So far there haven’t been any further confirmations on the cast, with the pair being the only confirmed characters to return.

With filming taking place later in the year, more casting will be announced in the coming weeks.

There will likely be more returning cast members, alongside the potential of new faces joining the series.

Tennant and Sheen also talked about the exciting news of the announcement, saying: “The return of Good Omens is great news for me, personally.

“As I get to work with Michael again, and I get to say Neil’s wonderful words once more.”

Sheen added: “Personally I’m against it, but the world isn’t going to just save itself, is it?

“If David and I can manage to not fall out too badly this time it may even have a chance of getting finished.”

Good Omens season two will be available to watch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video
