When is the Good Omens season 2 release date? Based on the hit novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Good Omens became a stand out TV series back when the first season was released in 2019. Full of wisecracks, fantastical magic, and some apocalyptic action, the Amazon Prime show charmed us all and left fans begging for more. Well, the good news is that Good Omens season 2 is officially on its way, and our favourite angelic and demonic duo is returning for the next instalment.
Good Omens is a fantasy series that follows the unlikely friendship between the demon Crowley (David Tennant) and the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen). The two have lived on Earth since the beginning of time and, over the centuries, have developed a bond and a soft spot for their mortal home – which becomes a problem when Armageddon arrives. The two must join forces to foil both heaven and hell’s plan and stop the world from crumbling to the antichrist. Season one ended with our main characters surviving their death sentences, some new prophecies revealed, and an all-out war between the mortals and the realms of heaven and hell is subtly foreshadowed.
Needless to say, there are plenty of unanswered questions, and fans have been itching for news on Good Omens season 2.

“It’s 31 years since Good Omens was published, which means it’s 32 years since Terry Pratchett and I lay in our respective beds in a Seattle hotel room at a World Fantasy Convention and plotted the sequel,” Gaiman said.
“I got to use bits of the sequel in Good Omens — that’s where our angels came from. Terry’s not here any longer, but when he was, we had talked about what we wanted to do with Good Omens and where the story went next.”
The author went on to reveal the premise of Good Omens season 2. “Here are the answers you’ve been hoping for,” Gaiman revealed. “We are back in Soho, and all through time and space, solving a mystery, which starts with an angel wandering through Soho, with no memory.”
So origin story or not, we know that angels will be front and centre in Good Omens season 2 at the very least. Gaiman has also teased fans about a potential romance between everyone’s favourite angel and devil. Let’s not lie, Crowley and Aziraphale have dynamite chemistry, and the internet has been buzzing on their potential relationship.
