It’s fantastic news, you wicked little demons: Season 2 of Good Omens is in full swing, which means Aziraphale and Crowley have been bothered with more vital concerns rather than sipping champagne at The Ritz.
Given that Neil Gaiman previously told that he and Terry Pratchett had “always agreed” to slog on Good Omens “jointly or not at all,” this may come as a surprise to some.
668: The Neighbour of the Beast, the sequel to the original novel, was never completed, and Gaiman informed us that the show’s first season included a lot of facts from that tale in the series.
He explained, “[Things like] spreading into heaven and hell.” “Gabriel (Jon Hamm) isn’t in the book, but he and the other angels, as well as a number of the other demons, came from all of Terry Pratchett and I’s discussions about what we’d do in a sequel.
“In some respects, I’ve already kind of used that material up.”
Gaiman has come up with a lot more ideas since then, and he subsequently stated that “if people love this enough, and if the time and the desire are there, we could easily go back and make a lot more.”
It’s worth noting that the preceding comment was made before he appeared to rule out returning to that world once more, but enough with the past. We’re currently anticipating the second season of Good Omens.
When Will Season 2 Air?
Although a release date has not been set, we know that it will be in 2022.
Douglas Mackinnon has been rehired as director, and Neil Gaiman has been rehired as executive producer and co-showrunner.
“We needed to show that we could get them both to Scotland. The zoom call from Los Angeles was met with puzzled looks. After that, they set out to attempt to figure out where Scotland was “According to Mackinnon, who spoke to Deadline.
“We’ve got the top of the crop when it comes to local talent. ‘Local’ makes it seem a little self-conscious. I’m delighted we’re finally bringing these performances here with Neil — it seems like everyone is eager to put them on, and there’s no hesitancy.”
Amazon announced the start of filming by releasing new photos from the set, which were exciting.
“I am so delighted and ecstatic to be back here on the streets of Soho, witnessing Michael Sheen and David Tennant’s great performances every day,” the showrunner remarked. “I miss Terry Pratchett’s brilliance, but it feels like we’re all still trapped inside his skull.
“It’s been a dream come true too with the great John Finnemore on this season’s plot hijinks, as well as to work with the director and co-showrunner Douglas Mackinnon as he steers the ship, as well as our incredible team, who have returned to do it all over again.
“It’s like getting a family back together for this second season of Good Omens,” Mackinnon added. “Not only has the cast reunited, but so has a large portion of the Good Omens Season One crew.
On both sides of the camera, the number of our crew is growing, so I’m pleased to remain at the helm for six more episodes of what we believe will be heavenly entertainment.”
So, Amazon Prime members will soon have another six episodes to look forward to, and it appears that the creative team is just as pleased as we are.
Tennant and Sheen have undoubtedly returned as the show’s faces.
Paul Adeyefa, Michael McKean, Gloria Obianyo, Miranda Richardson, Maggie Service, Reece Shearsmith, and Nina Sosanya are among the others who have returned. However, the cast of Good Omens has indicated that several of the returning performers will play new roles.
Is the Plot of Season 2 Out?
“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,” Gaiman said in a statement.
“It’s 31 years since Good Omens was published, which means it’s 31 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,” Gaiman said (via TV Line).
“In Good Omens, I got to utilise some of the sequel, which is where our angels came from. Terry is no longer with us, but while he was, we discussed what we wanted to achieve with Good Omens and where the plot should go next.”
He also said: “People have been asking a lot of questions regarding what occurred afterwards (and possibly before) to our favourite Angel and Demon. Here’s the information you’ve been looking for. We’re back in Soho, and we’re unravelling a storey that begins with an angel walking the streets of Soho with no recollection.”
