Good omens is a 6-episode mini-series, co-produced by Amazon Studios and BBC Studios. All the episodes of the sextet were released on May 31 2019 on Amazon Prime. The show was created and written by Neil Gaiman and Douglas Mackinnon has directed the series. After the release of Season 1 in 2019 fans have been clamoring for Good Omens Season 2.
Good Omens Season 2 Storyline
The basic gist of the show is of a pair of angel Arizaphale and demon Crowley trying to prevent the apocalypse. The show starts eleven years prior, with the demon Crowley delivering the Anti-Christ to the satanic cult, who were then supposed to hand it over to an American diplomat, but due to a mishap, it ends up in a British Family called Youngs. The Anti-Christ ends up with a boy named Adam Young.
In the end, Adam restores the whole world and renounces Satan, Heaven, and Hell to agree to leave Crowley and Arizaphale on Earth when they see that holy water and hell-fire respectively do not affect them. Will Good Omens Season 2 Start from here?
Good Omens Season 2: Official Announcement
Neil Gaiman, the creator of the show has been playing back and forth, retracting his statements here and there about Season 2. As of now, there has been no official announcement, only the teasing of Gaiman.
In 2017, Gaiman told Radiotimes.com “Terry and I also plotted Good Omens Season 2 that we never did.”It was about where the angels actually came from, which is why it was pretty easy to add extra angels [including Jon Hamm’s Gabriel] to this.“And having come up with that plot, we know that if people love this enough and if the time and the will are there, we could absolutely go back and do a lot more.”
Then later in 2019, he said at SXSW that the good thing about Good omens is that it has a beginning, middle, and end. Then again after some time, he said that he would love to write Good Omens Season 2. Here is what he said:
“I think it would be fair to say that there is nobody in the world who doesn’t want more Good Omens,” he said. “Right now, the challenges of creating more Good Omens are challenges of time and the world, not of willingness.
“I would love to write more Good Omens. I want Crowley and Aziraphale together doing stuff. Watching Michael and David in Staged gave me so much joy, and a sort of weird, proud, kind of semi-parental joy, because I was like, ‘These are my boys. I put them together. And look at that!’.
“It also made me go, you know, ‘I really need to do something to get more Good Omens to happen.’ Because, honestly, I need David back in his sunglasses, and I need Michael shaved and with white hair, being Aziraphale again.” So the good news is that while nothing is official, it seems Gaiman is still open to writing some more. So while nothing is official, we can at least know that Gaiman is open to writing Good Omens Season 2.
There is no official confirmation of the cast for Good Omens Season 2 yet. But it is highly likely that the duo of Michael Sheen and David Tennant as Aziraphale and Crowley respectively should be back, also Sam Taylor Buck as Adam Young Buck can be expected to make brief appearances.
The mythological figures present can also be expected to make a comeback in Good Omens Season 2 like Ned Dennehy as Hastur, Ariyon Bakare as Ligur, Anna Maxwell Martin as Beelzebub, Doon Mackichan as Archangel Michael, Jon Hamm as Archangel Gabriel, Frances McDormand as God, and many others. Many new characters might be added as well.
Good Omens Season 2 Release Date
Season 2 has not been announced, let alone the release date. Despite the teases of Neil Gaiman, the chances of a second show being released are slim, because all the plot points have been concluded and the show was very controversial as well.
The plot of the show didn’t fit right with some Christian organizations as many people petitioned to cancel the show for featuring religious themes and using a female voice for God. Well, wait for Good Omens Season 2! We hope that the new Season will bring lots of new Factors and Twists.
We still don’t have any Official Trailer for the Upcoming Season yet if anything comes up from the Officials we will come back with it soon.
Good Omens is available exclusively on Amazon Prime, so those of you who haven’t watched it, can go over there and watch it.
