David Tennant and Michael Sheen are back in the third series of Good Omens, here are the details.
Neil Gaiman’s television adaptation of his and Terry Pratchett’s fantasy series Good Omens has been hugely successful these past few years, not least due to the chemistry and charisma of leading duo David Tennant and Michael Sheen. The second series, which debuted in August, was reported to be the number one show on Amazon Prime worldwide, and the first season was hardly struggling for acclaim, either.
A third series commission has been on the cards for a while, with the caveat that producer, director and co-showrunner Douglas Mackinnon would not be returning.
However, that hasn’t stopped Amazon pressing ahead with the third and final series.
While plot details are thin on the ground, we do know that David Tennant and Michael Sheen will be reprising their roles as fast-living demon Crowley and fussy angel Aziraphale.
We also know that Gaiman will act as showrunner and lead writer.
Speaking about the recommission, Gaiman said “I’m so happy finally to be able to finish the story Terry and I plotted in 1989 and in 2006. Terry was determined that if we made Good Omens for television, we could take the story all the way to the end. Season One was all about averting Armageddon, dangerous prophecies, and the End of the World. Season Two was sweet and gentle, although it may have ended less joyfully than a certain Angel and Demon might have hoped. Now in Season Three, we will deal once more with the end of the world. The plans for Armageddon are going wrong. Only Crowley and Aziraphale working together can hope to put it right. And they aren’t talking”.
Further casting has yet to be announced, we’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
