Good Omens To Return To Amazon Prime Video For Third Series

Good Omens is set to return to Amazon Prime Video for its third and final season, it has been announced.

The series is based on the novel Good Omens: The Nice And Accurate Prophecies Of Agnes Nutter, Witch, by Neil Gaiman and the late Sir Terry Pratchett and it follows angel Aziraphale, played by Michael Sheen, and a loose-living demon called Crowley, played by David Tennant.

Scottish actor and Doctor Who star Tennant, 52, and Welsh actor Sheen, 54, will return to their roles for the final series.

Gaiman, the 63-year-old British author of dark fantasy children’s novella Coraline, said: “I’m so happy finally to be able to finish the story Terry and I plotted in 1989 and in 2006.

We are ineffably elated to confirm that Good Omens will return for a third season! This calls for a round of hot chocolate and sweet treats!

— Good Omens (@GoodOmensPrime) December 14, 2023 “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.”

Executive producer Rob Wilkins said: “We’re delighted to see Crowley and Aziraphale returning after breaking our hearts in season two.

“Seeing award-winning duo David and Michael reunited will be such a joy.

“We only wish Terry was here to enjoy the ride with us.”

Josh Cole, head of comedy at BBC Studios Comedy Productions, said: “It is a rare joy to return to this uniquely wonderful show.

“The world Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett created has thrilled millions around the world and we’re delighted to be bringing those fans a gripping conclusion to a story that begun 35 years— and several millennia — ago.”

The show’s first series launched globally as a limited series on Prime Video in May 2019 and it was renewed for another series.
