Based on Good Omens, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s beloved fantasy novel, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the series is scripted for television by Gaiman himself (Stardust, American Gods, Doctor Who…if you needed a few credentials). While the bulk of the events of the book played out in season 1, the show was a hit, and Gaiman has helped shepherd the story forward for a second season, building on the world he created with the late Pratchett.
The first season of Good Omens follows the trials and tribulations of those trying to stop the oncoming apocalypse. Primarily Aziraphale (an angel) and Crowley (a demon), who, after a millennium or two on earth, have become rather fond of humanity. They try to intercept the Anti-Christ, who isn’t where they thought he was, and attempt to stop the end of life as we know it. The unlikely pair are played with pure delight by Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex) and David Tennant (Doctor Who), who are returning for season 2. In addition, several other first-season cast members will be returning either in the same roles or in new roles, as in an anthology format. Read on for more on how to watch Good Omens.

More about Good Omens
In season one, Sheen and Tennant are joined by a bevy of familiar faces making up the team of humans and deities of the end days, including Jon Hamm as the Archangel Gabriel, a middle management type, leading the forces of Heaven, who returns for season 2, alongside Derek Jacobi as Metatron.
Season 2 finds Hamm getting to ham it up, as Gabriel has fallen to earth without knowledge of his true identity or power. Now Crowley and Aziraphale must band together to keep him secret and safe from both Heaven and Hell until things are sorted out.
