Jon Hamm returns as Archangel Gabriel in Good Omens 2 - series 2 also welcomes Doon Mackichan, Gloria Obianyo Liz Carr, Quelin Sepulveda and Shelley Conn.
Gabriel will be aided and abetted by the Angels Michael, played by returning cast member Doon Mackichan (Toast, Smack the Pony), and Uriel, played by the previously announced Gloria Obianyo (Dune, High Life).
They will be joined by new angels, Saraqael, played by Liz Carr (Devs, Silent Witness) and Muriel, played by Quelin Sepulveda (Havoc, The Man Who Fell to Earth). Another key character from Hell this season will be played by Shelley Conn (Bridgerton, The Irregulars).
Neil Gaiman, writer and co-showrunner, comments: “Good Omens 2 just would not be the same without the astonishing Jon Hamm as Gabriel, everyone's worst boss. The story that Terry Pratchett and I created all those years ago continues to take us from London's Soho into Heaven and Hell. It's a delight for me to bring back characters we loved (or hated) and bring in new characters, from the shiniest top floors of Heaven to the dankest basements of Hell, to love (or to hate, or to love to hate or hate to love). All of them are part of the strange and unusually beloved family of Good Omens.”
Originally based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling novel, the new season will explore storylines that go beyond the original source material to illuminate the uncanny friendship between Aziraphale, a fussy angel and rare book dealer, and the fast-living demon Crowley.
Having been on Earth since The Beginning, and with the Apocalypse thwarted, Aziraphale and Crowley are getting back to easy living amongst mortals in London’s Soho when an unexpected messenger presents a surprising mystery.
The new season is produced by Amazon Studios, BBC Studios Productions, The Blank Corporation, and Narrativia.
