Possibly one of the world’s most anticipated new shows, Amazon’s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens book has just cast two familiar faces.
David Tennant and Michael Sheen have signed on to the project, reports TVLine, which will tell the story of the impending apocalypse in 2018, which angel Aziraphale (Sheen) and demon Crowley (Tennant) will attempt to prevent. Living amongst the humans since The Beginning, they’re not ready to resume their old lives.
Sheen said: “I first read Good Omens as a teenager and it’s been one of my favourite stories ever since. To be part of the team entrusted with bringing it alive on screen is a bit of a dream come true to be honest.
“To work alongside Neil, who I think is one of the greatest storytellers of all time, is incredibly exciting. And, just like the rest of the world, I’m a huge fan of David’s so I relish trying to save it with him.”
This sounds like a hoot, and count us in for the six-part show when it premieres next year.
