On Prime Video, there is a show based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s novel, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnus Nutter, which follows the adventures of Agnus Nutter.
Season one debuted in 2019 to considerable acclaim and adoration from the audience. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s determination to work on their Good Omens project “together or not at all” is what made the program possible.
Magic was always there in the series, however. Pratchett wrote a letter to Gaiman while they were both working on adapting it for the film. Good Omens author Terry Pratchett requested the letter to be mailed to Gaiman after his death and begged him to continue writing on the book even though he was no longer around.
Fortunately, Gaiman was able to fulfill his dream. This time around, the acclaimed author is back to make season two of the series.
When Will Good Omens Season 2 Release?
Good Omens 2 has yet to receive a release date as of May 2022. The show is currently in post-production, so we may expect to see it on our televisions sometime in the latter part of the year.
In November 2021, filming began in Scotland and finished in early March 2022. In a tweet, Michael Sheen shared an image of Aziraphale’s classic cream coat hanging from a door as confirmation of the rumors.
He said: “At times like this we need all the angels we can get. Sadly it’s time for this one to hang up his coat. However….#GoodOmens2”

“We had to prove we could take them both to Scotland. There were bemused stares down the Zoom call from Los Angeles. They went away afterward trying to work out where Scotland was,” Mackinnon told Deadline. “We have the cream of the crop of local talent. ‘Local’ makes it sound slightly embarrassed. I’m glad that finally, we’re bringing these shows here with Neil – it feels like everyone’s ready to make them, there’s no shyness.”
New photographs from the production have been released by Amazon to mark the beginning of filming, which is quite exciting.
Who Will Return in Good Omens Season 2?
Season one characters who will return in season two have been revealed by Amazon Prime. However, it was mentioned in the press release that several of the actors will be returning to the show under new names.
I can’t see how or why this would fit into the plot, unfortunately. Some of the cast members returning from the first season include Michael McKean, Gloria Obianyo Miranda Richardson Reece Shearsmith Nina Sosanya as well as Paul Adeyefa.
Sergeant Shadwell, the final officer of the Witchfinders, was played by Michael McKean. Madame Tracy (Miranda Richardson), a courtesan and part-time medium, became Shadwell’s, new love. Uriel, the archangel, was played by Gloria Obianyo.
It was Maggie Service who played Sister Theresa Garrulous, one of the Chattering Order of St. Beryl’s erstwhile satanic nuns, opposite Nina Sosanya’s Sister Mary Loquacious. Having the opportunity to portray Shakespeare was a great and amusing experience for Reece Shearsmith. It was a hilarious and slightly perplexed demon played by Paul Adeyefa.
What Will Happen in the Upcoming Series?
He has stated that this series is not based solely on the novel, but rather a combination of it and the novel. Once upon a time, Gaiman and Pratchett discussed the possibility of writing a sequel to their work together.
“It’s been 31 years since the publication of Good Omens, which means 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,” remarked Gaiman to TVLine.
The book’s title, 668: The Neighbour of the Beast, was rather amusing. As Gaiman went on, “I was able to incorporate elements from the sequel into Good Omens, and that’s how we got our angels. Sadly, Terry is no longer with us, but when he was, we discussed our plans for Good Omens and the story’s future direction.”
In an interview with Digital Spy, he described the concepts as “growing towards paradise and hell.” Because of our discussions about what would happen in the sequel, Terry Pratchett and I came up with a number of characters, including Gabriel (Jon Hamm), who is not in the book.
As a result, it appears like the brainstorming process was concluded long before any thoughts were even put on the screen.

Is There a Reason Why Crowley’s Smoke Is So Red?
At one time, Crowley reigned supreme over both the crossroads and the underworld. It had nothing to do with the demon tablet since he had half of it and then lost it all. To signify his authority, his smoke is crimson, signifying he is the King of the Crossroads.
