I got to use parts of that sequel in ‘Good Omens’ – and that’s where our angels came from. Terry is no longer here, but when he was still with us we talked about what we wanted to do with ‘Good Omens’ and where the story should take. And now, thanks to BBC Studios and Amazon, I have the opportunity to take it in that very direction. I involved wonderful collaborators and John Finnemore, he came aboard to take the baton with me. There are a lot of questions people have asked about what happened next (and also what happened before) to our favorite angel and demon. And here are the answers you were hoping for. We will return to Soho to unravel, through time and space travel, a mystery that begins with an angel wandering around Soho with no memory. “” Bringing Good Omens to my homeland in Scotland to shoot a second season – ha added Douglas Mackinnon – it’s a dream come true for me.

The amazing performances of David and Michael have made it a real necessity. Terry would certainly have been very happy with how they brought his characters to life, and excited, as I am now, that a second season is in the works. ”“ Personally, I’m against it, but the world isn’t going to save itself, is it? If David and I manage not to get along too badly, this could also be the right time for us to get the job done, “said Michael Sheen.” The return of ‘Good Omens’ is great news for me, as I will have the right time again. opportunity to work with Michael and to speak Neil’s fantastic words. This is perhaps worse news for the universe as it most likely means that there will be a new threat to existence to contend with, but, you know, a little bit you lose a little bit you win, ”David said.
