Good Omens season 2: Beyond the Book and back on your TV screen (trailer).

Amazon Prime Video has announced that “Good Omens,” the wildly popular show about divine frenemies, is coming back for a second season. Having successfully not brought about the apocalypse last time, Michael Sheen and David Tennant return to their roles as an angel-demon duo whose unlikely and, let’s face it, completely unholy friendship is almost as fun as seeing Bezos in cowboy boots.

This season is a bit of a celestial whodunit, as the pair are tasked with finding archangel Gabriel, played by Jon Hamm, who has mysteriously gone missing. Presumably, he’s not in the Mad Men archives. We can’t rule out the possibility that he’s simply stuck in a heavenly bureaucratic backlog, filing TPS reports.

Season 2 is promised to “explore storylines that go beyond the original source material”. That’s right, folks. Gaiman and Pratchett’s original novel has been left in the divine rear-view mirror, but fans need not worry. Neil Gaiman is back as executive producer, so there’s hope that the season won’t go to Hell in a handbasket.

Joining the holy hell-raising team are Liz Carr, who plays the angel Saraqael, Shelley Conn as demon Beelzebub, and Quelin Sepulveda, who pulls double duty as angel Muriel and a very human police officer. It’s yet to be seen if they can prevent any apocalyptic shenanigans from unfolding.

The second season will run for six episodes, all of which will start streaming on July 28th 2023 via Amazon Prime.

Whether it’s the missing archangel Gabriel or an accidental Armageddon, buckle up for a holy rollercoaster of heavenly havoc and demonic deeds. And remember, no matter how diabolical things get, Prime Video can’t actually cause the apocalypse… right?
