Good Omens Season 2: Release date, Cast, and Everything

Neil Gaiman responds to questions about when the Good Omens season 2 trailer will be released, saying that it isn’t coming anytime soon.

In 2019, Amazon Prime Video released Good Omens. Based on the novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett, this show revolves around an angel named Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and a demon named Crowley (David Tennant), two friends who enjoy spending time on Earth and want to prevent Armageddon, the final battle between heaven and hell, from destroying it.

Although Gaiman released a mini-episode called Good Omens: Lockdown in mid-2020, the show was still originally marketed as a limited series. However, Amazon renewed Good Omens for another season in 2021 and Gaiman once again serves as its co-showrunner. If you want to learn more, this handy, easy-to-read resource guide will tell you everything you need to know about Good Omens Season 2.

Is season 2 happening?

Fans of the beloved supernatural series have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of season 2 ever since Prime Video announced its renewal back in June 2021. However, show creator Neil Gaiman recently gave fans an update on when they can expect to see the trailer for the new season. After filming wrapped up in March 2022, the show has been busy with post-production, and it seems that all of that hard work is finally paying off as everything is coming together for a Summer premiere.

In response to a fan asking why there hasn’t been a trailer released for Good Omens season 2 yet, Neil Gaiman explained on his Tumblr that it is not uncommon for trailers to be released closer to the show’s air date. He used the example of his other television series, The Sandman, which took a long time to produce its first trailer.

“It’s just you. But if it’s any consolation it was worse for Sandman. We didn’t release the trailer until it was time to release the trailer by which point people on Twitter were already claiming it had been secretly cancelled for being woke and would never be released. Good Omens Season 2 won’t be released until the summer. If we release a trailer now we’ll have at least 6 months of people baffled that it’s not out yet. Sometimes you release a trailer early. Doctor Who has just released a trailer eleven months early. But that’s serving a lot of functions, most importantly restoring confidence in the new-old team of Russell T Davies and David Tennant.”

What to Expect From Season 2

Good Omens follows the thrilling story of two divine beings, Aziraphale the angel, and Crowley the demon, who must work together to prevent the end of the world. The antichrist, a newborn child, is causing chaos and threatening the balance of the world. However, Aziraphale and Crowley don’t realize that the child they have been tracking has been swapped with another at birth. As ancient prophecies begin to come true and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse approaches, both Heaven and Hell are preparing for the ultimate showdown.

Who is in the Season 2 Cast?

After the huge success of their first season, Michael Sheen and David Tennant are set to reprise their roles as Aziraphale and Crowley in the highly anticipated second season of Good Omens. In addition to Michael Sheen and David Tennant, other returning actors from the first season of Good Omens include Jon Hamm (Mad Men) as the archangel Gabriel, Derek Jacobi (Gosford Park) as the “Voice of God” that’s also separate from God called Metatron, Niamh Walsh (The Sandman) as a Nazi agent from 1941 named Greta Kleinschmidt, Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen) as a bookseller from 1941 named Mr. Harmony, Steve Pemberton (Inside No. 9) as another bookseller from 1941 named Mr. Glozier, Reece Shearsmith (High-Rise) as the famous English playwright William ShakespeareDoon Mackichan (The Day Today) as the archangel Michael, and Gloria Obianyo (Dune) as the archangel Uriel.

Good Omens Season 2

Season 2 also introduces several new characters into the fold, some of which are played by actors from the first season. Here is what we know about them based on interviews and press releases:

Quelin Sepulveda plays Muriel, a well-meaning angel that the actress describes as “gullible and curious.” According to Gaiman, Muriel spent the last 6,000 years in a boring office job that she desperately wants to get out of. The NYCC clip shows Muriel arriving on Earth and meeting Aziraphale and Crowley. She tells the former that she’s human, but the latter is suspicious of her presence. This preview also shows Muriel not knowing how to act like a human as she struggles to hold a cup and drink tea. Sepulveda has only appeared in two short films, Late Nights at the Movies and The Other End, and two episodes of the Showtime series The Man Who Fell to Earth, but she will appear in the upcoming action-thriller Havoc starring Tom HardyTimothy Olyphant, and Forest Whitaker.

Maggie Service plays Maggie, a record store owner whose business is right next to Aziraphale’s bookshop in Soho. Service played the satanic nun Sister Theresa Garrulous in the first season. She has also appeared in several other shows including Doctor WhoRed Dwarf, and Quiz as well as the 2015 film London Road starring Olivia ColmanAnita Dobson, and Tom Hardy.

Nina Sosanya plays Nina, a coffee shop whose “Give me coffee or give me death” business is right across from Maggie’s record store. She is also reportedly good at handling the Soho crowd. Sosanya played the satanic nun Sister Mary Loquacious, who later reinvented herself as Mary Lodges, in the first season. She has also appeared in several other shows such as Killing EveThe Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and His Dark Materials as well as several movies such as Love ActuallyManderlay, and Juliet, Naked.

Miranda Richardson plays Shax, a new demon who takes over for Crowley after he is fired from hell. Not much is known about her character at this time, but the stone-cold look she gives in a promo image suggests she’s not someone to be trifled with. Richardson played the human Medium Madame Tracy in Season 1. She is also an Oscar and Emmy nominee as she’s popped up in various movies such as Harry Potter and the Goblet of FireThe Crying Game, and Chicken Run as well as various shows such as MerlinRubicon, and Parade’s End.

Shelley Conn plays the new Beelzebub, leader of the forces of hell. Reportedly, this character has another name, so she’s different from the Beelzebub seen in Season 1. It’s unclear why Conn’s character is the new Beelzebub, but this reason will hopefully be revealed soon enough. Conn is best known for playing Lady Mary Sharma in the highly popular Netflix series Bridgerton and plays an unspecified main character in Prime Video’s upcoming superhero series The Boys: Gen V.

Good Omens Season 2 also introduces Liz Carr (Silent Witness) as another new angel named Saraqael. Other new actors include Siân Phillips (I, Claudius), Tim Downie (Outlander), Pete Firman (Peacock Season), Andi Osho (Line of Duty), and Alex Norton (The Count of Monte Cristo).

When Will Good Omens Season 2 Be Released?

It was revealed at the 2022 New York Comic Con (NYCC) during the Good Omens Season 2 panel that the show will make its triumphant return sometime in the summer of 2023. Even though Amazon has started to release new episodes of their shows on a weekly basis, it’s unclear if Good Omens Season 2 will be released that way or all at once like the first season, but we’ll hopefully get an answer in the coming months.

Also just like the first season, Good Omens Season 2 will be six episodes long, so Neil Gaiman and company hopefully tell a clear and concise story once again.
