Good Omens is coming to Amazon Prime Video in 2019. The six-part series stars Michael Sheen as angel Aziraphale and David Tennant as demon Crowley along with Jack Whitehall, Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Nina Sosanya, Ned Dennehy and Ariyon Bakare.
Neil Gaiman, who wrote the novel the series is based on with Terry Pratchett, hit Twitter to share the first image of Tennant and Sheen:
“People have fallen in love with an angel and a demon in a book by Terry Pratchett and me, and they have been excited and nervous to see how they would appear on screen — and I was probably the most nervous and excited of all… Michael Sheen is the best and finest of bookseller angels, David Tennant the coolest and most delightful of demons. Together they are one hell of a double act (or do I mean one made in Heaven?)”
Terry Pratchett’s tweet confirmed Douglas Mackinnon, whose credits include Knightfall, Dirk Gently, Doctor Who, Outlander and Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, is director/executive producer:

Good Omens takes place in 2018. The Apocalypse is coming. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan – except angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley have grown accustomed to their comfortable surroundings in England. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist…
Good Omens is produced by BBC Studios, Narrativia and The Blank Corporation, in association with BBC Worldwide which is handling international rights. The series will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in 2019. The series will also air on BBC Two after the Amazon debut. Stay tuned, kids…
