Production begins on Good Omens Season 2 in Scotland, Sheen and Tennant to raise more hell

Good news for fans of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens: production has begun in Scotland on the second season of the Amazon Original series, reuniting stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant, as angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley.  

The second series will see many of the first season cast return, some reprising their roles, and others, intriguingly, playing new characters. These include Paul Adeyefa, Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson and Reece Shearsmith. Apparently we have to wait to find out just who the new characters will be. Douglas Mackinnon once again handles direction.  

The new season will take the story beyond the original novel, focussing on the unlikely friendship between angelic rare book dealer Aziraphale, and fun-loving demon Crowley. We join the duo as they resume their life living amongst mortals in London’s Soho,  when an unexpected messenger presents a surprising mystery…

Writer Neil Gaiman returns as co-showrunner and executive producer. “I am so happy to be back here on the streets of Soho, watching, every day, the glorious performances of Michael Sheen and David Tennant,” says Gaiman.

“I miss having Terry Pratchett’s genius, but it does feel like we are still all walking around inside his head. It’s been an absolute pleasure to have the brilliant John Finnemore co-write this season’s story shenanigans with me, and to work with director and my co-showrunner Douglas Mackinnon as he steers the ship, along with our astonishing crew, who have returned to do it again. In this season we get to have new adventures with old friends, to solve some extremely mysterious mysteries, and we encounter some entirely new humans (living, dead, and otherwise), angels, and demons.”  

Co-showrunner and director Mackinnon adds: “Having a company of players reuniting for this second season of Good Omens is like bringing a family back together, this time in Scotland. Not only the cast, but also many of our Good Omens Season One crew have reassembled. Our team is being enriched with new talent on both sides of the camera so I am excited to be at the helm for six more episodes of what we hope will be heavenly entertainment.”
