Good Omens TV series adds Narcos’ Adria Arjona to its cast.

Adria Arjona (of True Detective, Narcos, Emerald City and Pacific Rim: Uprising fame) will be joining Michael Sheen and David Tennant in Good Omens, the forthcoming six-part television adaptation for Amazon Prime and BBC Two – based, of course, on the fantasy novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

Arjona is to play Anathema Device, practical occultist and descendant of the ancient witch Agnes Nutter. Michael Sheen will star as the somewhat fussy angel and rare-book dealer Aziraphale, and David Tennant will play his opposite number, the fast living demon Crowley.

Arjona told SFcrowsnest.org,: “I’m thrilled to be playing such a magical, sassy and fantastically fearless character as Anathema in this epic adaptation of such a renowned novel.”

The series is written by Neil Gaiman (American Gods), who will also serve as Showrunner. It will launch in the UK on Prime Video before going on to BBC Two at a later date.

Additional cast for the series also includes Nina Sosanya (W1A, Marcella, Love, Actually) as Sister Mary Loquacious of the Chattering Order of St Beryl, Ned Dennehy (Broken, Peaky Blinders, Dickensian) as Duke of Hell Hastur and Ariyon Bakare (The Dark Night, New Blood) as fellow Duke of Hell Ligur.
