Amazon Prime Video released the second season of the TV adaptation of “Good Omens”, adapted from Terry Pratchett’s fantasy novel “Discworld.”
Michael Sheen and David Tennant reprise their roles as best friends: rare-book dealer Aziraphale, the fussy angel, and fas-living demon Crowley.
However, this second season goes beyond the initial material produced by Neil Gaiman and Pratchett.
In the beginning, Gaiman adapted “Discworld” in full to write the first season of “Good Omens” in 2019.
The show was initially created as a limited series, but it was renewed for a second season in 2021.
In Amazon’s renewal announcement, Gaiman said Pratchett and him have plotted the sequel 32 years ago.
They got to use bits of the sequel, that’s where their angels came from.
The second season was written by Gaiman and John Finnermore.
The story goes back further in time to the “Before The Beginning” period of Aziraphale and Crowley’s friendship.
Throughout the six-episode season, they try to figure out why the archangel Gabriel (played by John Hamm) shows up at Aziraphale’s bookshop with amnesia.
Gabriel also hides them from Heaven and Hell so they won’t get any trouble with their former employers.
Currently, there is no update on whether Amazon has plans for the third season of “Good Omens”, so we should enjoy it no matter what.
