Sheen & Tennant in Good Omens

Good Omens confirmed for Third and Final Season

Posted Filed under

Crowley and Aziraphale return for one last ineffable hurrah in Good Omens Season 3.

After concluding its second season with a hellish cliffhanger in July, it’s no surprise that the divine Good Omens is coming back for more.

Based on the novel by Neil Gaiman and the late Sir Terry Pratchett. Good Omens is the story of the relationship between the Angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and the Demon Crowley (David Tennant).

Both began serving as earthly representatives for their respective departments of the afterlife and attempting to subvert the apocalypse. With that averted, the second season moved on to a mystery and focussed on the relationship between the two central characters.

Now, for its final run, the show will focus on Gaiman and Pratchett’s original ideas for a sequel novel.

Neil 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.”

Rob Wilkins, Good Omens’ executive producer, added:

“We’re delighted to see Crowley and Aziraphale returning after breaking our hearts in Season Two. Seeing award-winning duo David [Tennant] and Michael [Sheen] reunited will be such a joy. We only wish Terry was here to enjoy the ride with us.”

Good Omens Season 3 begins filming soon in Scotland with Neil Gaiman as executive producer, writer, and showrunner. Rob Wilkins of Narrativia, representing Terry Pratchett’s estate, as well as BBC Studios Productions’ head of comedy Josh Cole will also executive produce.

The new season is produced by Amazon MGM Studios, BBC Studios Productions, the Blank Corporation, and Narrativia.

We’ll keep you posted on Good Omens Season 3. You can catch both previous seasons of the show on Prime Video.
