Prime Video has renewed Good Omens for the third season, as fans and showrunner/writer Neil Gaiman hoped. Based on the book of the same name, co-written by Sir Terry Pratchett and Gaiman, the series follows the misadventures of Crowley (a demon, portrayed by David Tennant) and Aziraphale (an angel, portrayed by Michael Sheen) as they try to avert the apocalypse since they’ve fallen in love with humanity, Earth, and also each other.

David Tennant as the demon Crowley and Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale look at each other in front of the elevators that will take them to their respective afterlife desinations.
Definitely not on talking terms.

The first season followed the book, plotted out by both Sir Terry and Gaiman, but Gaiman felt they needed a bridge between what they’d planned for two seasons. John Finnemore joined Gaiman in writing what became the second season of Good Omens, as Sir Terry had passed away. His absence was noticeable. The show lost much of its biting satirical social commentary that was one of the greater strengths of both it and the book.

That’s not to say the second season wasn’t enjoyable. It was. It expanded its cast, adding the delightful Muriel (angel, portrayed by Quelin Sepulveda) and expanded and added roles for several actors from the first season. I also particularly enjoyed the show not shying away from having visibly disabled angels and how season two made the feelings between Crowley and Aziraphale textual rather than leaving it as heavy subtext. It was an excellent addition to the canon.

Crowley’s prepared.

Season three, though, will have at least some of Sir Terry’s touch and continue from the heart-breaking cliffhanger the show left us with back in July, with Armageddon again threatening Earth and Aziraphale rejecting Crowley for Heaven’s sake. That, along with the return of Tennant and Sheen, is all we know at this point. Well, that and the season’s playlist, which was announced alongside, was full of break-up songs. It should be stated for the record that Gaiman, Sheen, and Tennant are all notable trolls.

Pretty sure we were already listening to these after season 2

We’ll keep an eye out for more news! Thankfully, we know that some work has already been done on the writing side, so maybe we can see the conclusion to this story sooner rather than later.
