Good Omens season 3 release date speculation, cast, plot, and news

Aziraphale and Crowley are the most dynamic duo in fantasy TV at the moment, so we can't wait for the Good Omens season 3 release date.

Good Omens season 3 release date: Aziraphale and Crowley look at each other

Rejoice heavenly (and devilish) readers, because Aziraphale and Crowley recently came back for another round of divine adventures on Prime Video, and we’ve already got our eyes on the Good Omens season 3 release date.

We love Good Omens (It’s one of the best TV series around, and you can read our Good Omens season 2 review if you don’t believe us!) and it sucks that we were only blessed with six episodes of the second season of this incredible show. We know gluttony’s a mortal sin, but get ready to take a bite out of the apple of knowledge because here’s everything we know about the return of one of the best fantasy series we’ve ever seen.

Good Omens season 3 release date speculation

Good Omens season 3 should return in late 2025, as long as Amazon Prime gives the new season a green light to go ahead.

Neil Gaiman has said there are plans for another season, which is extremely promising, and it should be just a matter of time before season 3 gets the green light. Deadline reported in October 2023 that the options on the Good Omens season 2 cast have been picked up, so an official announcement should be imminent.

Gaiman responded to the report himself, stating on Tumblr that he and Amazon “aren’t quite there yet” on a renewal. But he did say that everything is moving much closer.

That would make a late-2025 release date seem realistic to us, so long as the 2023 Actors Strike is resolved in the near future, bringing us more delicious drama from one of the best Amazon Prime series.

“Because the hypothetical season three exists, there is a story that is there, and I didn’t feel that we could drive straight from season one into that,” Gaiman told SFX magazine [via GamesRadar]. “I knew what the stakes were. I knew what the parameters were.

“I also knew that I had David [Tennant] and Michael [Sheen]. I had the angels from plot number one,” he continued. “I had demons from plot number one. And with anybody that I wanted to bring back but didn’t have room for right now, I did not have to bring them back as themselves.”

Who’ll be in the cast for Good Omens season 3?

It wouldn’t be Good Omens without Michael Sheen and David Tennant, so we’re certain they’d return to lead the season 3 cast.

According to that Deadline report, options have already been picked up on Sheen and Tennant, so it looks like they’re already secured should season 3 be confirmed. Along with them, the rest of the recurring cast should be back for season 3 too, if all goes well.

We expect that Derek Jacobi will return as Metatron as well, and we’ll see more of Jon Hamm as Gabriel and Shelley Conn as Beelzebub. More new faces will join the cast too, obviously, and as they’re announced we’ll be here to update you.

Here’s the expected Good Omens season 3 cast list:

  • Michael Sheen as Aziraphale
  • David Tennant as Crowley
  • Derek Jacobi as Metatron
  • Jon Hamm as Gabriel
  • Shelley Conn as Beelzebub

On the creative side, there’s been a major shift. Co-showrunner and director, Douglas Mackinnon, has stepped away from the series as confirmed on an Instagram post, and later on by Gaiman via BlueSky. This most likely means that Gaiman will take up the mantle himself and see out the third season as the head showrunner.

What will Good Omens season 3 be about?

Good Omens season 3 will likely pick up where the second season left off, with Aziraphale running Heaven alongside Metatron as they plan for the Second Coming.

Crowley, meanwhile, will likely still be on Earth licking his wounds after Aziraphale rejected him, which will almost certainly result in some form of vengeance. Presumably, at some point, Aziraphale will see the light and try and stop Heaven’s attempts at armageddon. Or maybe not? You never can tell with Gaiman.

Personally, we want to see more of the relationship develop in new and interesting ways. That’s the heart of Good Omens and has been powering the seasons along now since the beginning. The new conflict could really fundamentally change things, and that’s the most exciting prospect as we look ahead to the future.

Is there a trailer for Good Omens season 3?

There isn’t a trailer for Good Omens season 3 yet, sadly, and that’s because filming hasn’t even started.

When this does begin we’ll start to see the first images from the show released, along with some details. But if you can’t wait, then now is a great time to head back into the vault and enjoy the funniest moments from Good Omens season 2.

Where can I watch Good Omens season 3?

Good Omens season 3 will stream on Prime Video, like the previous two. 

That means you can rewatch the two seasons now, ahead of season 3, and that’s never a bad thing. Once you’ve gotten to the end, you can then get more fantasy from Rings of Power, which is also on Prime Video, as is Wheel of Time. They’re fun too! If you want more, we have a whole list of what’s new on Amazon Prime this month too.

How many episodes will be in Good Omens season 3?

Like the previous two seasons, we’re expecting Good Omens season 3 to have six episodes.

That’s pretty much the perfect binge-able amount of episodes and helps to keep Good Omens pacey. That’s why it’s so addictive, though we have to be honest and say we’d adore more. If you haven’t delved into it all yet, sign up for an Amazon Prime free trial here.
