Fans of Good Omens, it is time for celebrations. We say so because ‘Good Omens’ has been renewed for a season 2 by Amazon Prime Video. Almost everything has been decided and started. An in-depth brochure for season 2 is right here for you.
Good Omens Season 2
The season 2 of Good Omens is being directed by Douglas Mackinnon. The screenplay for the season 2 is has been written by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett. These two wrote the screenplay of season 1 from their book titled ‘Good Omens’.
Neil Gaiman has said that he and Terry had completed the season 2 screenplay before the death of Terry. Based on the screenplay, the production of season 2 began in November 2021 in Scotland.
The production is being handled by Narrative, Amazon Studios, BBC Studios, and The Blank Corporation. Recently it was reported that maybe the production is complete or will be complete by the middle of 2022.
If indeed the production is complete then editing should occupy this year. Thus, it should be safe to assume that season 2 will release on Amazon Prime Video in early 2023 with 6 episodes like season 1. Expect to see the trailer around that time only. Up next are the cast details of season 2.
The cast of Good Omens Season 2
For season 2, all the cast members of season 1 are going to return. This includes the 5 main members of the cast as well. They are Michael Sheen as Aziraphale, David Tennant as Crowley, Daniel Mays as Arthur Young, Sian Brooke as Deirdre Young and Ned Dennehy as Hastur.
Along with them, the other 15 secondary cast members are going to be there for season 2. Now, let’s discuss the plot of season 2.
Plot of Good Omens Season 2
In season 1, we saw that Aziraphale and Crowley were together able to prevent the Apocalypse. Now the angel-demon duo is back on earth.
They restarted their lives as humans as season 1 came to a close. For season 2, the show is going to explore the origin story of Aziraphale and Crowley. The two are going to be in Soho, with no memory of what has happened in past.
Parallel to this plot will be the relationship between Aziraphale and Crowley. Throughout season 1, it was apparent that the two had a romantic appeal for each other. Even Gaiman has acknowledged this fact and has hinted towards season 2 exploring this relationship.
That is all for now. We expect to get the confirmed release date soon, once the official announcement of the completion of the production is made.
The announcement will be made by Amazon. Till then if you happen to have missed out on season 1 of ‘Good Omens’ then you can do catch up very easily. All the season 1 episodes are available on Amazon Prime Video.
Watch the show today and get ready to welcome season 2.
